We’re pleased to announce that our own Jennifer Wehrmaker, Lisa Penn, and Michelle Vazquez have been named 2019 “Pros to Know” by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. The Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives that are leading initiatives and making significant contributions to help solve supply chain challenges in today’s competitive business climate.  

A look at why these three earned it:

Jennifer Wehrmaker, B-Stock’s Vice President of Marketing, is responsible for developing and executing the company’s global marketing efforts including driving customer acquisition and retention, marketing communications, product marketing, and branding. Jen has been instrumental in building the B-Stock brand with the world’s largest retailers. This includes the execution of B-Stock’s corporate rebrand: a new website, updated messaging, video campaigns, and other key communications activities.

Lisa Penn, B-Stock’s Strategic Account Manager for the Fashion Vertical, provides solutions for B-Stock’s biggest apparel clients.. A big part of her role is to advise on auction strategies for our clients’ B2B liquidation marketplaces. Under Lisa’s guidance, these marketplaces allow the retailer to increase recovery rates on returned and excess merchandise while ensuring brand protection and a controlled channel for how the merchandise enters the secondary market. Because Lisa has been instrumental in helping nurture B-Stock’s growing roster of apparel clients she is often referred to as THE apparel expert (both internally and externally).

Michelle Vazquez, B-Stock’s Director of Listings, has grown from a solo listings operation into overseeing a team of 17 including Auction Listing Technicians, QA Analysts, Developers, and Implementation Leads. Under Michelle’s leadership, the team works with B-Stock’s retail clients to ensure their returned and excess inventory is listed, described, titled, and manifested in an accurate and timely manner on their B2B liquidation marketplaces.

Our CEO, Howard Rosenberg has this to say about our three winners: “I have the pleasure of working with this group of talented individuals who are effectively changing the way companies handle and extract value from their returned, excess, and other liquidation inventory. A big congratulations to Jennifer, Lisa, and Michelle on this Pros to Know acknowledgment; a well-deserved recognition.”
