Stord Continues Rapid Expansion to Grow In-House Expertise Team

ATLANTA, Nov. 14, 2019 -- STORD, the pioneer of Networked Distribution helping companies move products more efficiently at scale, announced this week that two new vice presidents are joining its executive leadership team: David Hardwick, Vice President of Engineering, and Steve Swan, Vice President of Supply Chain. 

Since relocating to Atlanta’s historic Biltmore Hotel following their Series A funding earlier this year, STORD has doubled the team, adding 20 new employees with supply chain and technology experience. “As our customers and team continue to scale,” says CEO and co-founder Sean Henry, “we’re taking advantage of our proximity to local Atlanta talent to expand our in-house expertise.”

David was most recently at BetterCloud, where he held the Chief Technology Officer position for over seven years, leading a 100-person technology organization across 16 teams to build the world’s first multi-SaaS Operations product. Prior to BetterCloud, David was Director of Cloud Services at Cloud Sherpas, a cloud-computing advisory and technology services company acquired by Accenture. As VP of Engineering, David will be responsible for managing and scaling STORD’s software platform capabilities and integrations.

Steve joins from Amazon, where he spent seven years in senior management positions and led the creation of Amazon’s Prime Free Same-Day fulfillment network. Prior to Amazon, Steve was the head of transportation strategy at Grainger, a $16B market cap industrial supply and inventory management company. Steve will bring his experience in strategic supply chain planning for customer experience and scalability to STORD’s operations and supplier relations teams as VP of Supply Chain.
