We are proud to announce the promotion of Bobby Haskins as our new VP of Retail Partnerships.
Bobby, who was previously our Director of Market Development, has been an invaluable part of the team ever since he started with Auror 2.5 years ago. He has led our retail partnerships and industry initiatives including the Global Retail Crime Summit, the national platform for ORCAs, and the LPRC ORC working group.
Co-CEO Tom Batterbury says the promotion is well-deserved and a recognition of Bobby’s talent and continual hard work.
“Bobby is deeply passionate about loss prevention and the role of technology to help retailers tackle complex challenges. Bobby is an outstanding leader for our team, he exemplifies what it means to be a partner, and we're excited to see his ongoing impact for the industry.” - Co-CEO Tom Batterbury
Bobby is looking forward to taking on his new role and continuing to work with partners to reduce crime, loss, and harm to retailers and communities.
"It’s been an amazing 2.5 years at Auror, I’ve loved every second of this journey. I’m humbled by this promotion and excited to keep making an impact for our partners and the industry." - Bobby Haskins
Here is what other leaders in the loss prevention industry have to say about Bobby:
Director of the Loss Prevention Research Council Dr Read Hayes:
“Bobby has been a tremendous contributor to the Council and the loss prevention industry for a long time. He’s not an up-and-comer anymore. He is a true leader, driving partnerships and innovation.”
Walmart Senior Director of Asset Protection Joshua Ridgeway:
“Our partnership with Auror wouldn’t be what it is without Bobby. We’ve capitalized on his innovative thinking and expertise, and at the same time, his energy and passion is catching. He’s elevated our entire project team with his leadership.”
Rexall Director of Loss Prevention Daryl Blackmore:
“Bobby’s commitment and focus on Auror’s customers has been world-class from day one. He exemplifies customer-first and I see him contributing even more to the loss prevention industry in his new role.”
President of the Loss Prevention Foundation Terry Sullivan:
“It can be challenging to transition from an AP leadership role to a Solution Provider role. However, I had the opportunity to work with Bobby on the Global Retail Crime Summit in early 2020 and was able to see firsthand his passion and the amount of effort he was willing to put forth to bring an amazing educational resource to our industry. We appreciate all the support that Bobby gives to the Loss Prevention Foundation, and this promotion just shows that hard work and determination will always pay off. Congratulations, Bobby!”
