Welcome MCX EDI Strategy and Vendor Relations Manager

Dear Valued Business Partner:

This has been a year of transition for MCX and our vendor community, as a result of the challenges of bringing our Regional Distribution Centers on line. Now that they are up and running, we have shifted our gaze to the future and are looking for ways to more closely align with you, our vendors. I'm truly pleased to announce that Carrie Glaeser has joined the MCX Supply Chain team in the newly-created role of EDI Strategy and Vendor Relations Manager. Many of you have worked with Carrie in her previous roles on the Merchandising and Planning teams here at MCX. She will bring that terrific background to bear on a daily basis as she tackles the challenges surrounding communications, compliance and EDI strategy.

We are very excited to have the ability to step back and look at our vendor policies holistically and work toward a total supply chain view of vendor relations. Over the coming months, we will be working to standardize communications, find opportunities to assist in avoiding compliance penalties, re-evaluate EDI options, revise and redistribute our Vendor Standards Guide and generally look for opportunities to improve our combined bottom lines. By adding an individual who can focus on effectively understanding the challenges of and communicating our needs to our vendor community, we feel that we will be better positioned to achieve the goal of improved supply chain profitability.

Kris Berg, our Compliance Program Analyst, will be reporting to Carrie in order to provide the support needed for all of the initiatives on the table with regard to Vendor Relations. Kris has been the backbone of the compliance efforts and that will continue going forward. Carrie and Kris will be your main point-of-contact for all inquiries that don't involve the planning or merchandising of your product.

I hope you will join me in congratulating and supporting Carrie in her new role!

To contact Carrie or Kris in regards to EDI Strategy, Vendor Relations, or Compliance please email
