In this role, he will lead the company in implementing continuous improvements and efficiencies, prepare the company for future diversification of manufacturing and vendor relations, and help drive further progress toward the company’s sustainability goals.

Prior to that, he held leadership roles with increasing responsibility at Schneider Electric, Google – where he was head of Consumer Hardware Supply Chain Operations – and Dell Technologies, where he spent more than 14 years.
