Ex-Walmart exec joins supply chain firm

Former Walmart executive Mark Trowbridge has joined supply chain technology provider Park City Group as one of the firm’s senior advisors.

Trowbridge spent 16 years at Walmart where he launched the Neighborhood Market store and a merchant leadership rogram to recruit and train buyers, according to a press release announcing his new role at Park City Group. He still lives in Bentonville. Trowbridge’s new responsibilities include developing business solutions, consulting and expanding efforts in the retail channel.

“Mark is a highly accomplished senior leader with expertise in operations, buying, training and development.  He brings invaluable experience especially in the critical retail categories of frozen and dairy,” said Randall K. Fields, chairman and CEO of Park City Group.

Trowbridge most recently was the Executive Vice President of Operations for CCF Brands, a leading dairy products marketer.  Prior to Walmart, Trowbridge spent 20 years at Ralphs Grocery Company in Southern California.

“To better serve their consumers, retailers and suppliers must work together to ensure that the products are in stock on the shelf when the consumer goes to purchase them,” said Trowbridge.  “Park City Group is uniquely equipped to provide both the guidance for business process change and the technology needed to make significant changes that increase profitability for both.”
