Container Store CEO Tindell will address Organization with Heart
Kip Tindell has been at the helm of The Container Store since it first opened its doors in Dallas in 1978—creating the first-ever store devoted solely to storage and organization products. The company has locations from coast to coast, a thriving website and 2011 sales projected to approach $650 million. But for TIndell, the goal never has been growth for growth’s sake. Rather, it is to adhere to a fundamental set of corporate values centered around an employee-first culture, strict merchandising and superior customer service. Success has been the natural and inevitable result. Tindell continues to embody the unique corporate culture he created, and has nurtured a fierce employee loyalty that has landed the company on FORTUNE magazine’s list of “100 Best Companies to Work For” 12 years in a row.
Tindell is actively involved in the community dedicating time and resources to the Salesmanship Club of Dallas and Dallas’ Save the Cathedral campaign. He also serves on the board of Whole Foods Market (WFMI), the National Retail Federation and Colorado’s Western State College. He chairs the National Retail Federation’s Foundation. He is a leader and passionately involved in Conscious Capitalism, Inc., a community of like-minded business, thought and academic leaders working to facilitate knowledge sharing and networking, in service of advancing the broader Conscious Capitalism Movement.
