PureWRX is pleased to announce that Martin Garvin has joined the company’s Board of Advisors, bringing supply chain and global operations expertise gained from senior executive roles at Dell and Juniper Network.

From 2001 to 2008, Mr. Martin Garvin was at Dell Computer, where he was first the Vice President of Worldwide Procurement and then later Senior Vice President and Chief Procurement Officer. In these roles he oversaw the strategic leadership and management of Dell global supply chain, manufacturing, and procurement operations. He led a worldwide team with direct reports in commodity management, supplier engineering, materials, logistics, general procurement, and international trading. Prior to Dell, Mr. Garvin held significant Operations positions at Sun Microsystems and Hewlett Packard.

Mr. Garvin was most recently at Juniper Networks, where he was the Senior Vice President of Global Operations. While there, he directed global projects and operations to achieve the overall growth, productivity, and profitability objectives of an organization delivering high-performance network solutions to service providers, enterprise organizations, and the public sector. He has served on three companies’ boards of directors, and he has an MBA degree from San Jose State University.

PureWRX has demonstrated that Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) programs are a very important way for IT hardware manufacturers to build closer ties with their best customers. And the closer you are to customers, the more complicated the procurement and operational requirements can be, especially for global service providers. PureWRX is on a strong growth trajectory in the US and internationally, and I look forward to helping the company meet those customer needs while at the same time making their operations as efficient and effective as possible.

PureWRX is the leader in developing and managing CPO programs for IT hardware manufacturers and global enterprises. The company’s senior team has developed CPO programs for over 40 brands in various industries generating over USD1 billion in sales.
