Will joined the world of supply chain finance after studying economics in college. After a few years on the East Coast, he was ready to blend finance and supply chain management with marketing and operations. This led to both a West Coast move and a spot at Amazon as a Brand Specialist—which later helped Will discover the vendor manager avenue.
Will compares his niche to a startup, since it’s one of many branches with room for innovation. Each morning, Will monitors systems to catch errors on either the supply side or the online listings. If no time-sensitive projects crop up, Will arranges calls with vendors and manufacturers to work out challenges on their end so the integration with Amazon is seamless.
