Niterra North America Names GM of Supply Chain Management

Ann Nelson assumes the new role, after a 25-year career with Niterra.

Niterra North America, Inc. announced the appointment of Ann Nelson as the general manager of supply chain management. “This strategic appointment highlights Niterra’s commitment to strengthening its Supply Chain Management Group, improving its distribution, and forecasting strategies to meet the market’s changing demands,” the company said.

“During Niterra’s rapid growth, we recognized the necessity of altering our leadership structure,” said Clair Stewart II, vice president of supply chain. “Ann’s remarkable track record, proven by her effective logistics and customer service management at our Sissonville, West Virginia campus, makes her the ideal candidate to oversee the OE and Aftermarket warehouse East Distributions.”

Over the past 25 years, Nelson has had a distinguished career at Niterra, progressing through various roles. In her new position, Nelson will oversee Niterra’s North American East distributions to ensure smooth operations and exceptional service, the company said.

Concurrently, Brian Lesiewicz, well-known for his valuable contributions at the Wooddale, Illinois distribution center, will now oversee all North American West distributions, further strengthening the company’s presence across the continent, according to Niterra.

“I am honored to step into this new chapter with Niterra,” said Nelson. “Leveraging my extensive experience and deep understanding of our operations, I am fully committed to driving our organization’s success and exceeding our customers’ expectations in every aspect of quality, value, service and performance.”
