TBC Corporation has announced the growth of the leadership team in Supply Chain & Logistics to support expansion for the company. The newest additions to the team announced this week include John Flowers as vice president, supply chain optimization and performance and David Rodriguez as vice president, supply chain planning.
“The addition of team members with an extensive supply chain and logistics background will be extremely beneficial to the team as we support initiatives that impact all stakeholders and areas of our business,” says Scott Clark, senior vice president of supply chain and logistics, who joined the team from Jo-Ann Stores LLC in September 2017.
Flowers joins TBC from ATD where he supported the business as senior vice president of operations for eight years and vice president of operations for eight years. In his role at ATD, TBC says Flowers developed and implemented systems, processes and facilities that enabled systemic growth, facilitated alternate channel opportunities and permitted aggressive expansion through acquisition.
Rodriguez joins the team from CVS where he concentrated on supply chain for the past seven years. Prior to CVS, he worked for Walmart with a focus on supply chain, merchandising and retail operations.
Additionally, just a few months prior, in January 2018, TBC announced the addition of XPO’s Sean O’Laughlin to vice president of distribution for the company.
“For the past 62 years, TBC has been a tire company ahead of the curve. We’ve been able to maintain our industry leading position, and plan to continue doing so, through the leadership of 10,000+ associates led by team leaders with extensive industry expertise, operational knowledge and a commitment to leading with excellence,” adds Erik R. Olsen, president and CEO at TBC Corporation. “The growth of the leadership on the supply chain and logistics team is a testament to the expansion opportunities ahead for TBC and we’re confident we have the right people in place to lead them.”
