Jeff’s experience driving systems and processes that strengthen relationships across supply chain ecosystems make him a perfect fit in the plan Akash and I developed early on. Jeff’s market insights are grounded in years of experience working alongside influential and progressive retailers and other companies, and so are valuable to our customers as well as to our organization.”
