Havertys names Nexus exec to head up supply chain


Home furnishings retailer Havertys reported that Gary Niedermeyer, assistant VP, supply chain, will retire at the end of 2015. He will be succeeded by Abir Thakurta, who will report to Richard D. Gallagher, executive VP, merchandising.

Abir Thakurta joins Havertys with considerable experience in cross-industry supply chain strategy and operational design. He was most recently with GT Nexus as a director in their supply chain consulting practice where he implemented performance improvement programs with retailers worldwide.

"We believe Abir’s knowledge and experience in helping retailers obtain end-to-end visibility in an increasingly complex and global supply chain will be a valuable asset to Havertys. His experience using the latest technology and best practices to drive profitable operations while managing business risk will make him an excellent fit for our team,” said Gallagher.

Havertys, based in Atlanta, operates123 stores.
