RILA Unveils Asset Protection Leaders Council
A select group of retail executives has formed the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) Asset Protection Leaders Council (APLC). Mike Lamb, VP of asset protection for the Home Depot is the council’s chair, and Monica Mullins, VP of asset protection & Safety at Walmart, is vice chair.
Comprising senior-level retail loss prevention executives, the APLC will provide a forum for the exchange of critical information and ideas, as well as the pursuit of positive change for the industry-at-large.
“Through the collaboration of this group, we have a great opportunity to tackle the challenges facing the industry as well as capitalize on the opportunities before us,” said Lisa LaBruno, VP of loss prevention and legal affairs at Arlington, Va.-based RILA, whose membership consists of over 200 retailers, product manufacturers and service suppliers.
Asset protection/loss prevention executives participating in the trade group’s councils and committees are able to build relationships with industry leaders; attend forums where members can discuss operational practices and concerns, and find practical solutions to challenges; and identify the financial and operational issues posed by legislation and regulation and integrate these realities with public policy to effect change.
