Shawn Stewart, who will join us on May 2, 2022, brings deep expertise in consumer insights, customer, loyalty, digital marketing, and analytics across multiple verticals to his new position at AIR MILES. Most recently, he was Senior Vice President, Customer at Canadian Tire Corporation, Limited, a $16 billion multi-brand retail conglomerate with more than 1,700 retail and gasoline outlets and a financial services division, where he led the team responsible for enterprise loyalty, digital marketing, customer analytics and personalization, including the team that built and grew the Triangle Rewards loyalty program. In his prior tenure at McKinsey & Company and Accenture, Shawn developed customer acquisition and retention strategies, data-driven applications, and customer experience programs to accelerate business growth for clients. In addition, from 2010 to 2013 Shawn was a member of the AIR MILES leadership team where his role included accountability for data and analytics for AIR MILES’ Sponsors.

“We are thrilled that Shawn has agreed to re-join us given his passion for building new capabilities and transforming organizations and brands, which aligns with our strategic objectives. He brings excellent credentials to AIR MILES as well as a deep understanding of Sponsor needs, Collector behaviors, and our business development opportunities. Shawn is the clear choice to direct our investments to drive greater consumer engagement in our programs by enhancing our value proposition and upgrading the redemption experience for our AIR MILES Collectors, while building additional data analytics and marketing capabilities for our Sponsors,” Mr. Horn noted.

“It is a great honor for me to lead the talented group of people at AIR MILES. I am excited to leverage the insights I have gained from working with Canada’s largest companies and pair that knowledge with the digitally-oriented strategic transformation that is underway at AIR MILES,” Mr. Stewart said.

Further, we are pleased to announce Rick Neuman has joined AIR MILES as Chief Technology Officer. Most recently at Flipp, a retail technology firm, Rick was formerly Executive Vice President eCommerce & Chief Technology Officer at Walmart International, where he was responsible for Walmart Canada’s digital transformation. During his six-year tenure, he created product and technology strategies for global merchant processes, transitioned international tech to improve delivery transparency and velocity, and built new technology leadership teams. At AIR MILES, Rick will be responsible for development, implementation and oversight of the program’s technology strategy and roadmap.

“These new additions to our AIR MILES leadership team are well-suited to build upon our 30-year history as Canada’s premier loyalty program, with the full support of Loyalty Ventures’ management and Board of Directors. We look forward to reporting on their progress,” noted Mr. Horn.
