Butch Gribbohm has more than 20 years of experience in the PHCP
industry, has written numerous articles and conducted seminars on inventory
management concepts and practices. He spent 10 years with Noland Co., starting
as a warehouse employee/driver, followed by counter sales for HVAC, then store
manager, but most of the time served as an inventory manager. After leaving
Noland, he worked in the field before joining Baker Distributing Co. as a
warehouse employee/driver. Eventually Baker named him a buyer at its corporate
office in Jacksonville, FL, followed by inventory manager. That’s
when he was asked to write a monthly column on inventory management and began
conducting “Inventory 101” seminars throughout the company. He retired about a
year ago but may do some consulting work. His approach to inventory management
is geared toward store personnel. Address questions or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 870-805-0028.
