Keynote speaker Doug Rauch

If you have ever set foot in a Trader Joe’s, you’ve experienced the innovative mastery of Doug Rauch, the keynote presenter for the 2017 Irrigation Show and Education Conference.

Rauch is the former president of Trader Joe’s Company, a popular neighborhood grocery store. Rauch spent 31 years with the company — 14 years as president. In an industry known for cut-throat competition, Rauch worked to grow the small nine-store chain in Southern California to a nationally acclaimed retail success story with more than 340 stores in 30 states.

Those who work with Rauch agree that his innovative approach is what took this company that started as a 7-Eleven knockoff to become the hottest retailer in America.

During his keynote address, Rauch will share stories and eye-opening case studies and reveal how to create a self-sustaining culture of innovation, build a brand in a competitive marketplace and lead with a purpose.
