This week, we wanted to introduce a new member of the F8 team: Colleen Riley!
This week, we wanted to introduce a new member of the F8 team! Colleen Riley is our Product Operations Manager and has been doing a fantastic job getting F8 organized and keeping us on top of inventory movements and stock.
After having 13 years worth of experience in the supply chain world, Colleen is now responsible for F8’s supply chain ecosystem of our customer’s inventory. She graduated from Bloomsburg University and has since held notable roles such as FTZ Manager of a large 3PL, Inventory Manager for the Department of Defense on contract for 7 years, and has Secret Clearance by the US Government.
Currently–when she’s not outdoors, hiking with her dog Parker, riding her Peloton, or seeing live music–Colleen can be found helping F8 grow into a stronger business. With all of this experience and acquired skills, Colleen decided to partner with F8 because she was interested in working with a business that aims to help businesses grow and succeed by taking product risk for them. F8 partners with businesses we believe in, so we have a mutually invested interest in helping businesses flourish. Colleen believes F8 is unique from other businesses because our team truly cares about the inventory we take ownership of. The partners at F8 are passionate and good at what they do, making the culture vibrant and exciting.
Colleen is hoping to add some new things to F8 to make it better. By constantly evaluating our partners inventory levels, sales, and 3PL shipments, she will be someone our partners can rely on and collaborate with to have a solid grasp of their inventory and inventory needs to help grow their business.
She wanted to end with the thought: “I am very excited to be part of the Forever 8 team and help our partners flourish. The ecommerce world will continue to grow, and Forever 8 is a team so many businesses can benefit from partnering with.”
We hope you all enjoyed meeting Colleen! She is excited to work with you all, and you’ll be excited to work with her.
Until next time, let us know if you have any questions or comments below!
Forever 8 recoups our investment (plus a small fee) as you sell. Take longer to sell than anticipated? No problem, we will work with you to ensure that we are both in alignment. Sell faster than anticipated? Great, our fees will be lower and we can order you more inventory to keep pace with your demand.
We are a partner. We aren’t here to offer quick bridge loans. Instead, we work together for at least a year, funding 100% of your inventory needs.
