Staples Solutions Appoints Dolph Westerbos as Chief Executive Officer
Staples Solutions B.V. (“Staples Solutions”) announced the appointment of Dolph Westerbos（pictured）as Chief Executive Officer effective 1 November 2017. Mr. Westerbos joins Staples Solutions to build upon the progress made since its separation from Staples, Inc. following the sale of majority ownership to an affiliate of Cerberus Capital Management, L.P. (“Cerberus”) earlier this year. He will be based in Staples Solutions’ headquarters in Amsterdam.
Mr. Westerbos has spent the last 15 years in various executive management positions at large multi-national listed companies around the world, with a focus on B2B products and services: supply chain, logistics, technology, and asset management. Until its recent majority sale to SYNNEX Corporation, he was CEO of Westcon Group (trading as Westcon-Comstor), a global technology distributor providing solutions in cyber security, networking and communications. Prior to Westcon Group, Mr. Westerbos held executive management positions at Brambles-CHEP, Dell, and ModusLink.
“As CEO, Dolph will strengthen Staples Solutions’ position as the leading provider of products, services, and solutions to small, mid-sized, and large businesses in Europe,” said Olof Persson, Chairman of Staples Solutions. “With over 15 years of CEO and executive management experience, Dolph has a strong track record of successfully leading complex and large-scale business transformations and developing profitable, best-in-class organizations.”
