Distribution Center Operations Manager
As Distribution Center Operations Manager at GPA, Anthony ensures that GPA’s regional sales and service facilities operate with the appropriate substrates available in the right quantities. He works closely with members of his team and other GPA departments to help all of GPA’s locations operate at peak efficiency.
In his role, Anthony works with employees at each regional facility to ensure inventory counts are accurate and products meet stringent quality standards. He also oversees freight management and GPA’s FSC compliance program. During Anthony’s career at GPA, he has played a significant role in the opening of GPA’s Texas Regional Headquarters, and in facilitating the seamless move of GPA’s Western Regional Headquarters to a building more than three times larger than the previous one.
Anthony got his start in the graphic arts industry when he joined Unisource as their Sample Department Coordinator in 1999. After three years, he transitioned to the role of Customer Service Representative and remained in that position until he joined GPA in 2006. Anthony started at GPA as a Warehouse Coordinator for the Western Regional Headquarters, and was promoted to Receiving Coordinator in 2012. He was appointed the Western Region Operations Supervisor in 2013, and then relocated to GPA’s corporate headquarters near Chicago when he was promoted to his current position in 2014.
Anthony firmly believes in going above and beyond for GPA’s customers and in everything that he does. He takes great pride in his work, which helped him become a two-time winner of GPA’s Brian P. Amerson Customer Service Excellence Award in 2008 and 2013. This award recognizes employees for consistently delivering excellent service to external and internal customers.
