Join the Wharton Entrepreneurs - Education and Resource Network (WE-EARN) and the Wharton Retail Network (WhRN) for our next event featuring Howard Greenspan (W’93), founder and CEO of SCS Direct, one of the largest Amazon consumer products companies in the world.

Howard will share his cutting-edge perspective on digital and traditional retail. Among other things, he’ll cover:
  • Inexpensive ways to create, innovate and reach customers;
  • Strategies and tactics for developing an effective business on Amazon, as well as pitfalls to avoid;
  • Opportunities and pitfalls associated with drop-shipping;
  • Issues relating to starting up, as well as expanding at scale in retail;
  • Trends in online marketing and omnichannel; and
  • How to adapt and stay nimble throughout the business cycle.
As always, there will be opportunities for your questions.

Howard Greenspan has been creating and reselling consumer products over the past 20 years through online and traditional retail. Over this impressive run, SCS Direct has grown into one of the ten largest Amazon sellers in the world and one of the largest organically grown e-commerce retailers.

SCS Direct has been ranked in the top 300 of the prestigious Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Companies and continues to maintain strong growth rates.

Howard attributes the success of his company to a dedicated workforce committed to making decisions and taking ownership of their actions without bias or red tape. SCS Direct prides itself on its ability to adapt to all situations. If an opportunity arises, the company can change at a moment’s notice.

Howard graduated from Wharton in 1993 with a major in Entrepreneurial Management and Marketing. Upon graduation, Greenspan worked for 6 years at the Danbury Mint, MBI, at first a Program Manager, and finally a Product Development Manager. He left in 1998 to start his own business.
