MicroCare Corp. is pleased to announce that Mr. James Gluck of Prospect, Connecticut has been appointed the Senior Procurement Manager for MicroCare. Mr. Gluck comes to MicroCare with more than 30 years of experience in purchasing, supply chain management and logistics.

We’re very excited to have Jim on the MicroCare team,” announced Steve LeFebvre, MicroCare Chief Financial Officer. “MicroCare is growing at a ferocious rate, which means supply chain issues are key. He’s going to be focused on the smoother integration of our supply chain with all of our evolving production needs.”

The position of Senior Procurement Manager is a new post at MicroCare. The job was created to better integrate an expanding supply chain with the three logistics centers at MicroCare which, in turn, support all three manufacturing facilities. Procurement also has been made more complex by the aggressive new product plans MicroCare will deploy over the next three years.

Prior to MicroCare, Mr. Gluck worked for eight years as a logistics and supply chain expert at Edgewell Personal Care, the huge personal care company behind the Schick, Wilkinson Sword and Playtex brands. At Edgewell, Mr. Gluck improved their procurement processes and managed the purchase and installation of new production equipment to support the largest product introduction in the company’s history. He also coordinated the company’s in-sourcing effort, which will be important at MicroCare because MicroCare out-sources very little of the company’s production. At an earlier employer, he developed an MRP purchasing dashboard that enabled purchasing to identify and requisition raw materials faster and more accurately, which improved factory productivity and minimized inventory holding costs.

Tom Tattersall, MicroCare Chief Operating Officer, finds Mr. Gluck’s computer expertise highly attractive. “In my discussions with Jim, I realized he is very I.T. savvy. He really understands the urgency of getting the right information to the right managers at the right time. As he has said, if you can’t measure it you can’t manage it. With his expertise MicroCare will be kicking our I.T. game up a notch or ten.”

“I’m ready for new challenges and new opportunities,” Mr. Gluck said. “I’m really looking forward to making significant contributions to the MicroCare team as the company adds new products, new customers and reaches into new industries.”

Originally from New Jersey, he’s lived in Connecticut for more three decades. He lives with his wife of 35 years and has two children. Jim is an avid sports enthusiast and recently took up snowboarding, and hopes to make it to the Guinness Book of World Records as the worlds’ oldest snowboarder.
