Havertys Names Supply Chain VP

Haverty Furniture Cos. (NYSE: HVT) has named Abir Thakurta vice president of supply chain.

Thakurta will succeed Gary Niedermeyer, assistant vice president of supply chain, who will retire at the end of the year. Thakurta reports to Richard Gallagher, executive vice president of merchandising.

"Gary’s wide-ranging and expansive service over the past 28 years combined with his amicable and steadfast commitment to excellence earned the respect from those within Havertys and our supply partners,” Gallagher said. “We are very fortunate to have benefited from Gary’s focus and steady hand as our business has grown and evolved with now a truly global supply chain.”

Thakurta joins Havertys with experience in cross-industry supply chain strategy and operational design. He was most recently with GT Nexus as a director in 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,” Gallagher said. “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.”
