On the execution side of the role, there are teams that manage Program Management (Order Entry) and Logistics (Both Export and Inter-Asia). This is a very dynamic role as we are in process of moving our main manufacturing base from Southern China (Dongguan) to Northern China (Jiaxing), Vietnam, and India.

Therefore, the new processes must be designed with this context and a global scope. Reporting to the role are Sr. Managers of Supply Chain for Jiaxing, Vietnam, and India (3 Roles – Currently Open & Recruiting), Sr. Manager of Resource Planning (Currently Staffed), Manager of Improvement / Domestic Planning (Currently Staffed), Sr. Manager of Logistics (Currently Open), and 3 Managers of Program Management (Currently Staffed).
