Today, they’re looking for a Distribution Site Manager for one of their major outsourced facilities in Guelph, ON! 

This individual will work out of the site near Guelph ON, and have full profit & loss (P&L) responsibility for the site. In this role, the successful candidate will take over overall site operations from the perspective of strategic and tactical processes, working to continuously improve the site operations to better serve the customer and the company’s overall business goals. You will work closely with the client to deeply understand their service needs, both in the near and long term, and then work to execute those needs. You will review and manage business plans for the site, working to identify and surface any issues, and oversee a variety of projects, including within the company’s Warehouse Management System (WMS) to improve operations at the site to increase profitability, reduce cost, and develop the business. Working to build strong relationships with the customer, you will work to anticipate and respond to needs, including by ordering and executing facilities services and upgrades, so exceptional customer service skills are a must.
