Braintree, MA, June, 2017 – Hub Pen Company and Beacon Promotions are proud to announce Robert Firth-Arnold joined their Supply Chain Team as Buyer in May 2017. The Minnesota native brings many years of experience as a buyer to the company, first with shopping network and portal Evine and with multi location industrial supply distributor Mars Supply since 2012. Through his experiences with both companies Robert gained a wealth of knowledge of inventory analysis and control, cost and condition negotiations and the software that drives these functions.
Firth-Arnold recently moved to Massachusetts where he currently lives with his family in the South Shore town of Abington. “I’m really enjoying working at Hub Pen,” Robert says. “Every day is different, and I like that.” When not at Hub, his gardens and his musical instruments keep him busy. “I played in the orchestra and also studied how to rebuild and repair string instruments back in the day,” he recalls. “Now I spend more time working in the garden and play the guitar and piano now and then.”
Hub Pen Vice President of Sourcing and Supply Chain Jing Rong says, “Robert has been a great addition to our team. He comes with years of experience in Supply Chain and never hesitates to help in which ever areas that we need him in.”
