MacGregor Expands Leadership Team

MacGregor Partners, LLC a leading supply chain software and implementation consultancy, is pleased to announce the addition of Matt Toburen to its executive leadership team as Vice President of Distribution Solutions and Innovation. Toburen is responsible for managing MacGregor’s partnership with Swisslog North America, a leading automation solutions provider in the distribution, healthcare, and automotive spaces. In addition, he will drive innovation and growth through his involvement in product management, analytics, and the development of additional service offerings to further support and differentiate MacGregor’s strong core consulting business.

Toburen joins MacGregor with more than 15 years of experience designing and delivering innovative software solutions across multiple industries including automotive, material handling, and wholesale distribution. Most notable are his contributions to the analytics space in the logistics industry, having delivered innovative and unique analytics solutions while at Dematic and in industry across enterprises as head of technology.

“Matt brings a new dimension to MacGregor and ultimately our customers. His expertise allows us to offer our clients top-tier automation solutions as well as deliver analytics and data visibility software in a unique and industry-defining way, leveraging his successful track record of paradigm shifting enterprise wide analytics deployments. The lessons learned from those programs allow us to change the way the market expects to interact with a full-service partner, something the supply chain and distribution industry is ripe for. Matt enhances our ability to serve and guide our clients more effectively, holistically, and with lower total cost,” said Jason Ziegler, President of MacGregor Partners.

As head of technology for the world’s largest arts and crafts wholesale distributor, Toburen led the ROI analysis and design of the company’s brand new $40mm order fulfillment solution that involved best in class software and automation vendors from across the supply chain space. The solution was a massive integration project and included conveyance, automation and a migration from a legacy ERP system to a data-driven warehouse execution system. As part of this solution, Toburen spearheaded the company’s foray into action-based analytics that delivered 8-digit returns.

“We are proud to welcome an experienced leader like Matt from the industry, both as an operator leading technology transformation for a wholesale omni-channel distributor, and as a vendor having built and led Dematic’s analytics and IT services consultancy from the ground up,” said Nicolas Celle, Executive Vice President of Operations for MacGregor Partners. “Matt is the ideal candidate for this role. His experience as head of technology as well as his vendor perspective is an experience set that is hard to find and incredibly valuable to MacGregor and our clients. His innovative thinking and understanding of the industry will be a true value-add to our new partnership with Swisslog and our collective customers across the industry.”

MacGregor Partners is well-known for delivering large scale warehouse management implementations across multiple industries. With the addition of Toburen to the team, and the release of two new software products in 2017, MacGregor is well positioned for further growth through expanding its service-offerings to its current customer base as well as increasing its footprint across the industry with leading SaaS solutions such as their analytics Toolbox and Folio, their SaaS based document management solution.

“As the supply chain industry continues to look at how data can help transform operating metrics and profitability, it will require not just innovative solutions, but a different approach to the thinking of how to leverage that data. The supply chain of today is comprised of a vast network of different systems and guiding customers on how best to access this disparate data and provide to users in a timely fashion, with context, is critical to any project’s success,” said Toburen. “I look forward to my dual role at MacGregor, leading both the Swisslog partnership and the innovative direction of MacGregor’s supply chain software solutions.”

Toburen holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communications with a focus on Information Technology from Michigan State University and is a US Patent holder.
