Today Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT) announced the hiring of Preston Mosier as senior vice president, fulfillment operations. Mosier will oversee Target’s direct-to-consumer fulfillment centers, as well as the process improvement, customer experience and product management functions related to direct fulfillment. He will report to Target’s executive vice president and chief supply chain and logistics officer, Arthur Valdez.
Mosier brings expertise in managing direct-to-consumer delivery, including optimizing last-mile operations and using data and automation to move product more efficiently. He spent 10 years in various leadership positions at Amazon building direct-delivery capabilities within a growing, large-scale operation. Most recently, he spent four years with Liquidity Services as vice president of operations leading efforts to improve profitability and capacity within supply chain networks for some of the world’s largest technology and retail companies.
“A top priority for our guests is to get what they ordered quickly, accurately and without hassle,” says 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.”
“Target has a sophisticated distribution network – plus nearly 1,800 stores across the country that are well-positioned in local neighborhoods,” says Mosier. “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 joins the company Aug. 14.
