Behind The Mic

John Dee

Show Host

In the early days of the Internet, I was lucky enough to work at MCI on Vint Cerf’s Internet team where we had a front row seat to a communications revolution. Later I moved from the world of Internet plumbing into Internet applications and services. I became fascinated by how people and society interacted digitally, and the impact that was having on retail and commerce.

Today, I feel lucky to lead an amazing team of professionals at PlaceWise Digital who work hard to contribute in our own modest way to the digital revolution in retail.

Show Host

I am a former “Mall Rat” and veteran of the Shopping Center and Commercial Real Estate Industries (let’s just leave it at that). 

I love retail! What keeps my love alive?  The passionate belief that technology holds at least one of the keys to restoring the eye-popping, jaw dropping, awe inspiring retail experience of the future.
