As Rachelle’s first employee at Synergy (and in life), Steve has two decades of supply chain expertise spanning pre-contract engineering, project management, and control system functional design for both greenfield and retrofit facilities. A mechanical engineering graduate of Purdue University, his design work in retail and e-commerce distribution facilities is informed by extensive data analysis to determine the optimal solution for both process improvements and maximum ROI. Prior to his current role, Steve spent his entire career at another systems integrator serving Fortune 500 retail clients. There, he rose through the ranks from hands-on project design and documentation to upper management. His role at Synergy allows Steve to get back to what he loves: leveraging his extensive, hands-on direct-to-consumer fulfillment center design knowledge to create unique solutions that meet the challenges of today’s retailers and shippers.
