Boyd has more than 20 years of experience in working with large retail clients, first as an auditor with the third-party audit firms on behalf of clients such as Walmart, Target and The Home Depot. His roles there exposed him to the aggressive approaches used to recover funding from retail suppliers. Recognizing that many suppliers lacked the resources or expertise to combat deductions and post-audit claims, he founded Harvest Revenue Group in 2010. For the first time, suppliers were provided an advocate who could work to level the playing field for them. To date, Harvest has identified more than $375 million in savings and recoveries for its clients.
Boyd received his bachelor’s degree in theology from the University of Northwestern, in St. Paul, Minnesota, and holds three related master’s degrees from the University of Toronto, the University of Dallas and Dallas Theological Seminary. He is also proficient in data systems and software development and wrote many of the proprietary algorithms used to support Harvest’s client base.
Boyd’s expertise on retail supplier issues is frequently sought out for industry seminars, Fortune 500 training sessions and by local and national media, including being quoted in The Wall Street Journal
regarding Walmart’s recent changes to its supplier terms.
