OKLAHOMA CITY, – Feed the Children announced the promotion of Hogan Thomas to Vice President of Domestic Operations and Programs. Prior to his promotion, Thomas was the Senior Director of Logistics Inventory Management for the large, anti-hunger organization.
During his time at Feed the Children, Thomas has implemented several significant process improvements. He’s engineered centralized procurement material solutions (these decreased the organization’s operating expenses by millions each year), improved average inventory turnover, and leveraged procurement/supply chain solutions (this improved Feed the Children’s price position and buying power as well as reduced budgetary cost avoidance).
“I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to further integrate myself with such an amazing team,” said Thomas. “I am here to serve an organization which best serves those who need our assistance. This isn’t about a title, this isn’t about me, it is about helping others through both love and support.”
The Norman and Oklahoma City, Okla. native has been with Feed the Children for seven years. During this time, he’s managed five distribution centers spanning across the U.S. and consisting of more than 120,000 stock keeping units. Thomas is focused on using his promotion as a way to further help his community.
“I don’t look at this promotion to better myself, it’s actually the opposite,” Thomas stated. “I look at this opportunity to give our organization more tools to better support and love humanity globally.”
