The key to the success of a $5.5bn company:
“The only way to win is to learn faster than anyone else, that’s the general spirit but generally speaking the most important thing, in my opinion, is people again, and having that focus on people, which is definitely something that we have at checkout – getting the right people and making sure that they have the tools to execute and to scale as fast as possible, is the key to success.”
