After announcing a new leadership structure last month, Lowe’s has filled one of its vacant executive positions.
The big-box home improvement company recently announced the appointment of Donald E. Frieson as executive vice president of supply chain, effective August 8.
In his new position, Frieson will oversee “the company’s distribution centers, logistics, global sourcing, transportation and delivery services,” according to a statement from the company. He will report directly to Marvin R. Ellison, Lowe’s president and CEO.
Previously, Frieson worked at Walmart for 19 years. His most recent position was as the COO of Sam’s Club, a division of Walmart.
“Don has a proven track record of driving seamless logistics and operations excellence within large, complex retail organizations with big bulky products, and we are delighted to welcome him to the team,” CEO Ellison says in a statement. “Don will bring deep experience and technical expertise to lead the transformation of our supply chain to meet the needs of our omnichannel customers.”
Lowe’s ended the fiscal year 2017 with more than $68 billion in sales. The company operates nearly 2,400 locations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
