Job Description:/h3:
Do you thrive in new executive buying roles at growing organizations, where you identify and develop new teams, processes, tools, and strategic relationships? Are you an expert in leading sourcing and product management teams that manage in an innovative ecommerce or retail environment? Are you a pace setter with proven expertise building teams that set goals and improve performance for COGS, gross margin, ROI, and Inventory Turns? Do you relentlessly work to provide for your customer, viewing everything from the customers perspective, while building cohesive teams that refuse to be outworked and outsmarted? If so, then our client is interested in learning more about you
This role is a senior leader, a general manager over the entire product sourcing function for hundreds of millions of dollars of annual purchases. It is NOT a merchandise buying role. The team and the new VP Vendor Management must be experts in sourcing, procurement, and supply chain efficiency. There is a heavy focus in this position on strategy and profitability, as you will be responsible for setting and executing against the strategic plan. Youll have broad responsibility to lead and continue to build the team that will continue to increase the number of profitable SKUs offered for sale to consumers through the companys websites. With growth comes opportunity to build the function and develop your own team (more than 20 team members now, could be 60+ by the end of next year). This isnt a job or career, this is a lifestyle and its not for the faint of heart. But for the rare leader who is driven by the challenge and flourishes in a high growth, high opportunity environment, this will be a lot of fun.
Your ability to adopt and add to the company culture is most critical in this process. You are a relationships builder and continuous improvement visionary who is:

:Builder, you develop teams and attitudes with vision to create whats needed.
:Pace setter, you act with a sense of urgency, you exhibit relentless improvement and teamwork in everything you do.
:Selfless, focused on developing teams and relationships that advance the companys mission and growth.
:Influential, with proven capabilities to balance several interests and steer your teams to do what is best for the company and customer.
:Data:driven, and you can recognize and surface key insights through data modeling from a sea of data.
:Storyteller, and you understand how to expertly communicate a vision and message throughout the company.
This is about managing the entire ecommerce product lifecycle, from identifying new categories, developing strategic vendor relationships, managing a significant P and L, building training and development programs for your team, establishing leadership pipelines, and continually improving the supply chain through cost savings and improved efficiencies.
The company is located near Omaha, Nebraska. Relocation provided. Competitive salary, company stock awards, high quality of life, and lower cost of living make this a truly unique opportunity. Occasional travel required for trade shows, major vendor meetings and negotiations, and shipping warehouse visits.
10+ years of vendor management, procurement, product sourcing, and leadership of large teams required.
