Our experienced leadership team

HRC Retail Advisory’s leaders are a unique group of dedicated, focused, and experienced retail advisors. Working in a close-knit partnership with our clients, HRC’s leaders possess a tremendous depth of retail industry knowledge in their respective specialties. Our retail consultants are versatile, with an average of two decades experience working with retailers—equipping HRC to produce the best business results for our retail clients.

HRC Retail Advisory was formed in January 2013 by leaders from Karabus Management and the former Senn-Delaney retail consulting firm. HRC’s leading retail strategy consultants, CEO Antony Karabus and President Farla Efros, have assembled a carefully selected team made up of retail’s brightest minds, with the objective of building North America’s premier retail consulting firm.

HRC’s leadership is supported on each retail consulting project by small teams of senior retail consultants who work seamlessly as an extension of our client’s teams to deliver practical, relevant solutions that generate exceptional near-term and sustainable long-term business benefits.
