ALOM, a leading provider of global supply chain services and solutions, has named Brandon Marugg to the new position of Chief Operating Officer (COO). A respected industry influencer and senior executive who has served at ALOM for 21 years, most recently as Chief Technology and Privacy Officer (CTPO), Marugg will expand his responsibilities to head the operations and technology groups.
“Providing clients with a technology-driven competitive advantage and flawless operations demands leaders who possess a unique blend of expertise. Brandon’s passion and proven success in these critical areas make him the ideal person to fill this exciting role,” said ALOM President and CEO Hannah Kain. “Brandon’s vision to marry technology and supply chain operations has fueled ALOM’s growth over the past two decades and helped establish the company as an industry leader in delivering unmatched service to clients.”
This year, ALOM celebrates its 25th anniversary following several years of significant growth. To facilitate and manage that growth, the company has strengthened its leadership team over the last five years with the addition of Jack Sexton as the CFO and Fiona Lowbridge as VP of Client Success. “The addition of the new COO position as part of the management team is a natural progression, and I am delighted to have such an eminently qualified person filling the position,” Kain said.
Marugg added: “Technology plays a key role in our culture of client-centric values and service excellence. I am honored to lead this new phase of growth and expansion with ALOM. I am especially excited about our digital transformation initiatives.”
During his distinguished career with ALOM, Marugg has been instrumental in expanding the company’s global client and supplier base by implementing sophisticated first-of-a-kind proprietary technology solutions that deliver competitive advantage for its “can’t fail” client supply chain programs in the life sciences, automotive, technology, and other highly regulated industries.
“When I joined ALOM in 2001, e-commerce was in its infancy,” Marugg recalled. “I was intrigued by the unexplored opportunity to apply this technology to supply chain operations. Throughout the development of new order, e-commerce, and fulfillment management systems for ALOM, I encountered nearly every challenge imaginable. At the same time, I gained a deep understanding of complex supply chain operations at enterprise scale. Together with the talented leaders and experts at ALOM, I intend to increase our level of technology-enabled operational performance and elevate it to the highest in the industry.”
Marugg’s promotion comes at a time when ALOM is experiencing significant and sustained growth. The company, now four years into an aggressive strategic growth initiative, has doubled revenue over the last three years and more than tripled its domestic operational capacity by operating three new state-of-the-art production and fulfillment facilities in Fremont, CA and Indianapolis, IN.
