Storis Promotes Doug Culmone to President
Retail software provider Storis has announced the promotion of Doug Culmone to president and chief operating officer.
Prior to joining Storis in 1998 as director of client services, Culmone was the vice president of operations at Hitchcock Chair, a company that had implemented Storis a few years earlier.
As director of services, Culmone focused on building a strong Storis team which ultimately transformed client relationships into strategic partnerships. The foundation he laid is a cultural distinction still practiced by the Client Services team today. In 2001, Culmone was promoted to vice president of operations.
Since 2004, Culmone has served the company as COO, overseeing the operations of the Storis business and is responsible for the performance and development of employees. During his tenure, the company has grown its team by 40 percent, expanded its client base significantly, and has consistently been listed as one of the best employers in N.J. since 2012.
“Doug has been an instrumental part of our growth and success. He continues to gain both personal and professional reward from helping others learn new skills and develop the next generation of leaders. He loves to and excels at solving problems and organizing teams. We are very excited for Doug to lead our company as president and COO,” said Don Surdoval, CEO.
