Dotcom Distribution said April 26 that Nicholas Calafati has been named senior vice president of operations.
Calafati joins the Edison-based fulfillment and distribution services company with more than 15 years in multi-channel distribution management experience. Most recently, he served as general manager at DSV, a global transport and logistics company.
Calafati has a long history of developing diverse, results-oriented teams and Dotcom hopes that experience will bolster the company’s strategic plans for continued growth.
“We are extremely grateful to have Nick join the senior leadership team at such an important time in our company’s history,” said Dotcom Distribution co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Maria Haggerty. “Our growth over the last decade has necessitated that we strengthen our ability to manage and optimize both operational and financial performance. Nick’s demonstrated ability to build sustainable businesses while simultaneously delivering operational efficiencies and market growth will help to successfully position the company for the future.”
In his new role, Calafati will be tasked with fortifying the foundation that makes Dotcom the premier third-party fulfillment company for fast-growing e-commerce brands, the company said. He will oversee the final phases of Dotcom’s Blue Yonder WMS, LM and WFM implementations, put in place to continue enhancing Dotcom’s warehouse team; improve and streamline processes and procedures; and ensure that the Dotcom operations team continues work in a clean, safe place.
“I am honored and excited to join the Dotcom team and consider myself very fortunate to be part of such a well-respected organization,” said Calafati in a prepared statement. “I appreciate Maria’s confidence in me, and look forward to building upon the strong foundation of people, technology, and client focus that allows us to provide outstanding service to our clients.”
