In order to find the divisional merchandise managers (DMM), general merchandise managers (GMM), and chief merchandising officers (CMO) of the specified companies, as well as their emails, we first examined each company's website for a list of their key leaders. While this was fruitful in finding the requested data for some of the companies, there were a few that we could still find through this avenue. The website of these companies also did not provide any contact information as well. Knowing that they are all public companies, we turned to their annual and quarterly reports, as well as, their earnings call transcripts. Our premise was that these companies would introduce their key leaders in these documents. This was, however, a dead end, the only leaders mentioned were the ones we already found on their websites. Next, we explored LinkedIn. There are a lot of professionals are on this platform and some even provide their contact details there. Through this strategy, we were able to identify the divisional merchandise managers and general merchandise managers of more companies. Still, there were a few more professionals we could not locate. In these cases, we concluded that the companies do not have the positions and either provided data on professionals with similar titles or entered NA into the spreadsheet. None of the professionals we found provided their emails or phone numbers there.
As an attempt to find the contact information of these professionals, we scoured their social media pages. Most of them had private social media accounts. The few professionals with public social media accounts kept it work related and did not offer any contact details. We proceeded to leverage email finders like Rocket Reach, Hunter, and Zoom Info. This helped gather some emails and phone numbers. Since we had to create personal accounts to get this data, screenshots of what was found have been entered here. For professionals that had no contact information on these databases, we searched for the email formats at the company they work at and provided guesstimates.
