Nimble Hippo: Loren Padelford, Shopify Plus VP on Giving Every Entrepreneur a Global Platform & More

Loren Padelford has led Shopify and Shopify Plus’s Waterloo office for the past five years. He is here to execute on the e-commerce company’s vision of giving every entrepreneur a global platform. Shopify is making a big bet on Waterloo Region, and he tells us why.

Padelford recently stopped by the NHR studio to chat about retail, how fundamental shifts are happening, and how Shopify is helping accelerate that shift, all the while benefiting from it as well. The retail shift is moving faster than ever; yet, in the future, it will never be slower than it is today.
