US: Mervyns appoints senior VP, supply chain
Neighbourhood department store Mervyns has appointed Bob Crosslin as senior VP, supply chain.
Crosslin brings to the company more than 30 years of experience in distribution and logistics services across multiple retail channels.
He will oversee the company's two distribution centres as well as the transportation, logistics, engineering and vendor technology departments.
Crosslin will focus on leveraging the full potential of the new Mervyns systems, enhancing productivity levels and realising increased efficiencies within the supply chain organisation.
"The recent installation of the Mervyns' supply chain technology systems marks a major milestone in our journey as an independent company," said Vanessa Castagna, executive chairwoman of Mervyns' board of directors.
"As we continue to invest in Mervyns' future, Bob's in-depth industry expertise and strong leadership abilities will be instrumental as we evolve our supply chain organisation to help achieve our ultimate goal - improving the shopping experience and value we offer our customers."
Crosslin joined Mervyns from Cerberus Capital Management, where he served as a supply chain consultant. Prior to Cerberus, Crosslin was with Pinetree Holdings, a third-party logistics services company.
