Advisory Board Member Profile
Gurpreet (Pete) Sahani
Greenlane Holdings Inc.
Vice President of Global Sourcing and Product
Areas of Expertise
Customer-Focused Innovation, Customer First Culture
When a company is looking to grow its top and bottom lines, I am brought in – to lead sales operations, build and manage global supply chains from the ground up and replace ad hoc with operational structure and order in the form of KPIs, SOPs and reporting.
The international vendor network I’ve developed is deep, diversified, 20+ years in the making, and includes hundreds of overseas vendors across Taiwan, Japan, China, India, Vietnam & Europe. Tapping into it has helped diverse industry companies – from cannabis, furniture, trailer, and generator manufacturers to material handling OEMs – to significantly lower their CAPEX, costs, and increase profit margins.
The business operations frameworks I’ve put into place have increased accountability across product development, sales, and inventory and warehouse management.
