Family Dollar seeks new supply chain exec

A search is underway for a senior executive to lead Family Dollar’s supply chain efforts following the departure of supply chain EVP Jeffrey Macak who resigned from the company after just two months.

In a brief statement, Family Dollar said Macak resigned for personal reasons effective immediately. Macak joined Family Dollar in early September of this year after a 13-year run at Bed Bath & Beyond where he served as vp of global supply chain.

At the time of his hiring, Family Dollar CEO Mike Bloom said, “Jeffrey’s background and leadership skills are a perfect complement to our operations and growth initiatives. In today’s highly competitive retail environment, building an efficient end-to-end supply chain is critical to our success, and we will look to Jeffrey’s extensive expertise to advance our ongoing efforts to improve supply chain efficiencies and drive increased value for our customers."

Prior to Bed Bath & Beyond, Macak served as president of Vantix Logistics for Ameriserve and also held roles with The Hechinger Company, a home improvement retailer, and with KPMG Consulting, LLP, and Deloitte-Garr Consulting Group.
