Home décor and furnishings e-retailer Bambeco.com has hired Sander Eth as its senior vice president of supply chain. He was a logistics manager for Staples Inc. He worked for the office supplies chain for 24 years, Bambeco says.
Staples is No. 2 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide. Bambeco, No. 727 in the Second 500 Guide, launched in 2009.
“We are at a critical period in our company’s growth and we need strategic leadership in our supply chain and warehouse distribution operations to successfully implement our strategy and take advantage of the market opportunities ahead,” says Bambeco CEO Susan Aplin. “Sander is a strong retail leader with a proven track record of execution. He shares my deep passion for a customer-centric retail strategy and culture.”
Eth joins Bambeco as it is moving this month into a 22,000-square-foot warehouse in Baltimore. “This new facility gives us the capacity we need to continue to service this fast-growing market,” Eth says. “The location affords us the ability to expand into additional space as we continue to grow and the proximity to major interstates helps us provide optimal service levels for our customers.”
