Target Names Preston Mosier Senior Vice President, Fulfillment Operations


MINNEAPOLIS, MN
Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

Target is again putting a spotlight on tightening its supply chain, announcing the hiring of Preston Mosier as its Senior Vice President of Fulfillment Operations. Effective August 14, this is the second Amazon.com veteran to join Target’s supply chain this year, having previously hired Arthur Valdez as Executive Vice President and Chief Supply Chain and Logistics Officer.

“Target has a sophisticated distribution network – plus nearly 1,800 stores across the country that are well-positioned in local neighborhoods,” explained Mosier upon his hiring. “I’m excited to work with the team, at a brand I’ve long admired, to continue refining how we use those assets to improve speed and precision, while also reducing cost and complexity.”

Mosier will now with oversee Target’s direct-to-consumer fulfillment centers, according to a press release, along with the process improvement, customer experience, and product management functions related to direct fulfillment. He will be reporting to his fellow Amazon alum, Arthur Valdez.

Arthur Valdez, Executive Vice President and Chief Supply Chain and Logistics Officer, Target“A top priority for our guests is to get what they ordered quickly, accurately, and without hassle,” continued Valdez. “Target already has a strong operation to move product in bulk to stores, so bringing the online fulfillment function under a specialized leader will enhance our direct-to-guest operation. Preston’s experience using technology and data to deliver smaller packages directly to consumers will help us continue building capabilities that will put product in guests’ hands even faster.”

Just last month, Target’s Chief Information Officer, Mike McNamara, outlined supply chain improvements as one of his top priorities. “The focus and the needs of our supply chain have changed massively over the last few years as direct to guest fulfillment has become more and more important,” he told Forbes in an interview, adding that the company is hugely invested into its supply chain from both a technology and a broader business standpoint.

The bulk of Mosier’s experience is in managing direct-to-consumer delivery, including optimizing last-mile operations and using data and automation to move product more efficiently, the company says. His 10 year tenure at Amazon included various leadership positions, and most recently, he spent four years with Liquidity Services as Vice President of Operations.

As Target continues its focus on tightening and improving its supply chain, including fresh produce, keep returning to Deli Market News for more.
