Company Description:

My client is a Fortune 500 organization who is thriving in the current marketplace. Their sales were up over 5% last year and their income increased by 10%. They have new leadership and therefore a new attitude toward distribution and know there are improvements to be made and are looking for the right people to help make them. There are currently two DC’s in start-up mode underway and we need our future leaders. Additionally, this is not an online retailer so hours are family-friendly.
