The Team Behind the Retail Industry’s Leading Product Development & Supply Chain Solutions


Bamboo Rose arms your retail organization with the data and visibility it needs to collaborate and drive efficiency from product development to distribution. Meet our team.

On a Mission to Find a Better Way

Back when Bamboo Rose started, documents were kept in hanging files, and product development collaboration was a clunky, manual process.

Sourcing struggles and snail-paced design-to-distribution timelines were the norm because retailers didn’t have the tools they needed to scale and solve complex collaboration and efficiency challenges. My, how times are changing.

The catalyst behind Bamboo Rose has always been to find a better way to help retailers:

Accelerate Data-Driven Product and Supply Chain Decisions Through Collaboration

Increase Operational Efficiency to Deliver the Right Products to Market

Empower an Efficient, Resilient, and Responsible Supply Chain

Driven by a Common Vision

Our team operates at its best when we focus on three things:


Trust is vital for a team at work because it allows members to feel comfortable to take risks, collaborate effectively, and be honest with each other. Without trust, teams are less productive, less creative, and less likely to succeed.


A performance mindset encourages employees to strive for excellence and leads to greater overall success for the company. It creates an environment where employees are motivated to continuously improve and develop their skills.


Being transparent with colleagues and customers means that we communicate openly and honestly in all interactions while being respectful of others’ perspectives. Transparency drives strong relationships over the long haul.

“We needed one platform to help us communicate and collaborate with our global supplier base. Doing so has led to better speed to market, more product offerings, and happy shoppers in stores and online.”
