Magic Memories appoints new head of North American operations
June 20, 2017

Magic Memories, the global leader in capturing, creating and sharing memories, has announced the appointment of George Reider as North American Chief Executive.

Reporting to Sydney-based Group Chief Executive Chris Warhurst, Reider will be responsible for the growth and direction of Magic Memories’ operations in the United States and Canada.

His appointment follows Magic Memories’ recent appointment of two Silicon Valley veterans to its board, Jeff Ryan and Sanjay Dholakia.

Commenting on the appointment, Warhurst stated “George's appointment marks another exciting milestone in the development of our North American operations.

“The combination of his retail ecommerce experience with our growing business will create a solid foundation on which to build our future efforts.”

Looking forward to his new role, Reider stated “I am thrilled and honored to join such a dynamic and passionate leadership team.

“Magic Memories has experienced tremendous growth and success, and I am committed to leading the North American team down its current path using innovative strategies to enhance the experiences of our team members and guests.”

Reider (pictured above)  is a highly experienced retail industry executive who has held senior leadership roles within fast-paced, digitally-driven environments.

For the last three years, he has worked closely with retail technology and online apparel startups at various stages of development. Prior to his consulting role, George served as White House Black Market’s Senior Vice President of Stores and Operations where he oversaw both the full-priced and outlet divisions. He also previously held leadership roles at Ann Taylor Corporation, Polo Ralph Lauren and Gap, Inc.

Now operating in 10 countries, Magic Memories help 150s million guests share over 300 million image-based memories each year.
