FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Research Triangle Park, NC – March 9, 2017. Jay Harris’ winning formula combines his passion for delivering state of the art technology and distribution processes with his commitment to building strong relationships. As COO and CEO, Komar Distribution Services (Komar), a third party logistics (3PL) provider in the upscale fashion industry, Harris is continually strengthening relationships with clients, partners and employees.
Along with people, processes and technology, Harris believes attention to detail is part of the formula for success. Whether on a single project, a face to face interaction or an effort that requires sharing best practices across the supply chain, Harris lays the foundation for his successful 3PL by continuously supporting improvement.
“On the one hand, Jay is relentless in finding a better way to do everything. He is never satisfied, and he is convinced that every process, system and product can and must be improved. On the other hand, he is an unfailing optimist, who truly wants the best for all of the team members that work for him. He works side-by-side with his team as a visionary, coach and cheerleader. It is the combination of these qualities through which Jay brings vision into reality,” says Chris Veit, SVP of Distribution at Komar.
