Shelley Renning
It was stitched into her DNA from the beginning — finessing the customer experience. This native Northwesterner cut her teeth taking care of customers in her family’s retail children’s store and she is serving customers still as the Vice President of Brand Management at SanMar, the largest promotional products apparel company in the U.S. For almost 10 years Shelley has led the merchandising and design teams for 15 distinct private label and retail brands with products ranging from fashion t-shirts to performance activewear to technical outerwear. Balancing business needs of driving productivity and sales volume with the introduction of trend relevant apparel products that resonate with the end user is her and her team’s passion! Never originally intending to stay in the apparel world Shelley received a B.S. in Business as well as a B.S. in Psychology from Oregon State University with the goal of focusing on labor relations. After a year of working in human resources at a pulp mill, she realized that the lure of fashion was a stronger pull than wearing steel toed shoes at a manufacturing facility! There is little distinction though between serving employees in HR or serving customers through the apparel they want, since they both relate to understanding consumer’s needs and focusing on the vision of where the company or brand wants to go. Shelley’s understanding of the customer experience came not only through her family’s business, but through buying or merchandising posts at private and public companies including JCPenney, Hanna Andersson Children’s Clothier, and Nike. With two separate stints at Nike – her first in strategic production planning and then her second round, for over six years, as a Senior Merchandiser for Nike Golf (where her dad joked she “dressed Tiger Woods”) – reinforced in her a drive to continually elevate serving not only her customer’s needs, but the needs of her team as well. Turning an exciting vision into products that resonate keeps her reaching for the next big idea, but the opportunity to lead and serve her team and her family brings the most satisfaction and joy. On weekends, you’ll find Shelley mostly spending time with her husband, Craig, and their young daughters. It’s even better, she says, than all those hours she logged on golf courses and trails before the two arrived on the scene. Shelley’s favorite SanMar Family Value: “‘Do the Right Thing.’ In publicly held companies, you’ve got to do the right thing for the shareholders. At SanMar, we do the right thing for the customer first.”
