Integrated Supply Network (ISN), one of the nation’s largest warehouse distributors of automotive tools, garage equipment and supplies, has announced that Tracy Veillette has joined the executive leadership team as chief financial officer (CFO), effective Aug. 1. Veillette will assume responsibility for corporate finance, accounting, audit, tax, treasury and legal for the enterprise.
“Tracy brings deep financial experience, strategic vision and proven leadership from her past experience with growing companies. We are pleased to have her assume the CFO role,” said Bruce Weber, CEO of ISN. “Tracy’s strategic financial management mindset will continue to support ISN’s strong growth trajectory.”
Veillette joins ISN from Tech Data Corp., a $35 billion wholesale distributor with a long track record of rapid growth, global expansion, team building and innovation. At Tech Data, she held the position of vice president, U.S. controller. Over her nearly 20 years at the company, Veillette grew into a top-level financial executive and was personally involved in many of the growth and improvement projects that drove them to become a world leader in technology products, services and solutions. Prior to Tech Data, Veillette spent nearly eight years at PriceWaterhouseCoopers, a top global public accounting firm.
Veillette holds Master of Accounting and Bachelor of Science in business administration degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is a Certified Public Accountant and is an active board member for several professional and philanthropic organizations in the Tampa Bay area.
“I am excited to join an organization that is strategically focused on growth,” said Veillette. “ISN has a vision to make the impossible, possible. I am engaged and eager for my journey with ISN as we further its position as the industry’s most valuable resource for tools and equipment.”
ISN has made eight acquisitions and opened three new distribution centers over the past three years, expanding its footprint in North America to 24 distribution centers, and has grown by double-digits every year for the past decade. Top priorities for the business include new product speed to market, managing the growing long tail of tools and equipment offered by more than 1,000 tool and equipment suppliers and providing complex supply chain solutions that allow customers to have what they want, when they want, the way they want it, with limited working capital tied up in inventory. With a background in a high-growth, Fortune 500 public company, Veillette’s sound financial leadership positions ISN to sustain its fast-paced growth journey and provide customers with the “wow” experience they have come to expect, the company stated.
