PFSbrands has promoted John McElroy as VP of procurement, overseeing the purchasing and research and development teams while continuing to lead quality at the company.

With this promotion, McElroy will join the senior leadership team while also continuing to head the execution leadership team. He has extensive experience in warehouse management, distribution, customer success, marketing and battling supply chain constraints.

“The promotion of John McElroy to VP of procurement and addition to the senior leadership team is well deserved. His dedication and commitment to profitability at PFSbrands has set a standard for leadership within our organization,” said CEO Shawn Burcham.

McElroy has a diverse background in operations and management across various industries, working with Pfizer Pharmaceuticals at one time and as the outbound shipping manager at Brookstone in Mexico, Missouri. This role honed his skills in logistics and supply chain management, contributing to his expertise.

In 2015, McElroy embarked on a new chapter in his career at PFSbrands, where he has served within the customer success, marketing, distribution and quality assurance departments during his tenure. Serving as the VP of procurement, he is responsible for the procurement of all raw goods and finished products for PFSbrands and PFS Blends, such as fulfillment rate, inventory turns, contract negotiations and vendor relations, among others.
