Originally titled 'Jim Gluck Appointed to Lead Procurement Efforts'

MicroCare Corp. has appointed Mr. James Gluck, who has more than 30 years of experience in purchasing, supply chain management and logistics, as senior procurement manager. 

MicroCare Corp. has appointed Mr. James Gluck of Prospect, Connecticut as senior procurement manager. 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,” says 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 created to 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 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. At Edgewell, Mr. Gluck worked on their procurement processes and managed the purchase and installation of new production equipment. He also coordinated the company’s in-sourcing effort. At an earlier employer, he developed an MRP purchasing dashboard, which improved factory productivity and minimized inventory holding costs.

“In my discussions with Jim, I realized he is very I.T. savvy,” says Tom Tattersall, MicroCare chief operating officer. “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 says. “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.”
