Optimas Solutions (Glenview, Illinois, USA), a global industrial manufacturer/distributor and service provider of fastening and supply chain solutions, announced the appointment of Daniel Harms to the role of company president for Optimas Americas, along with a seat on the Optimas board of directors. Formerly the chief operating officer (COO) for Optimas, Harms will begin his new assignments effective immediately.
As president, Harms is responsible for strategies that drive growth, elevate operational excellence, and enhance customer service in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Harms joined Optimas as its COO earlier this year with a focus on the company’s distribution centers, sourcing and supply chain in North America.
Prior to joining Optimas, Harms held several senior leadership positions at DSC/CJ Logistics (Des Plaines, Illinois, USA), where he built and guided high-performing teams to deliver operational excellence across multiple industries. His leadership style and data-driven approach consistently produced revenue and bottom-line growth with profit and loss statements over $100 million.
The company also announced that Mike Duffy, president for Optimas International, will join the board of directors alongside Harms. Tully will continue in his current role, where his industry knowledge, experience, and leadership capabilities have been critical to the success of Optimas for over 30 years.
“I’m very confident in Daniel’s ability to lead the Americas region and to continue building out a world-class team to drive efficiencies and improve results,” says T.J. Rosengarth, chairman of the Optimas board of directors. “I’m grateful for Mike’s energy and his unwavering commitment to Optimas’ success. I’m equally as confident in his ability to sustain the great team culture he has created and to continue delivering results.”
Harms and Tuffy will work closely to ensure alignment across both regions and make joint decisions where required to benefit the company as a whole. This streamlined leadership structure will allow Optimas to be more agile in serving global customers while operating within the specific requirements of individual countries.
