Parsippany, New Jersey-based Sun Chemical, a manufacturer of printing inks, coatings and pigments, announces the appointment of Jeffrey Shaw as its chief supply chain, quality and business improvement officer.
In his new role Shaw will be responsible for optimizing Sun Chemical’s entire supply chain, from the purchase of raw materials and the scheduling of the company’s plants, to managing market-based stock levels and the shipping of finished products to customers worldwide.
Shaw brings more 22 years of supply chain experience and knowledge to the position and most recently worked as the global vice president of integrated supply chain and manufacturing at Sun Chemical since 2010.
“Jeff has provided outstanding work for us for the past six years with his roles in supply chain, quality and business intelligence,” says Rudi Lenz, president and CEO of Sun Chemical. “By adding procurement responsibilities to his role, Sun Chemical will be able to focus on integrated strategies that do the right things for our company, our suppliers, and most importantly, our customers. I am confident that Jeff will further strengthen our business relationships and continue to enhance our strengths in procurement.”
Shaw replaces Ed Pruitt, who retired after nine years serving as Sun Chemical’s chief procurement officer.
