Lawrenceville, Ga. - Eddie Lageyre has joined SED International Holdings as senior VP, U.S. purchasing.
Lageyre will be based out of the new SED headquarters, here, and will report directly to Jonathan Elster, president/CEO.
Lageyre, with 18 years of purchasing experience in the industry, was most recently merchandising VP of ArchBrook Laguna, where he was responsible for vendor relationships, well as driving partnerships to effectively engage with the company's sales force and e-commerce and retailer customer base.
Before that, he had executive roles with OnSale.com, a wholly owned subsidiary of PC Mall and TigerDirect.
"Eddie brings a wealth of experience to this role, with an extensive background as a wholesale distributor and direct-to-consumer and business-to-business reseller (e-commerce and retail)," said Elster.
"His knowledge of managing multiple categories across various revenue streams and sales channels for companies such as ArchBrook Laguna, PC Mall and TigerDirect make him uniquely qualified to lead the U.S. purchasing efforts for SED. This role is an important addition to the company, as it further strengthens our purchasing organization as we execute on aggressive product and vendor partner related initiatives in conjunction with our three-year strategic growth plan."
