Wagor’s responsibilities include managing an end-to-end supply chain within the company, integrating supply and demand logistics across Wixon’s customer base. He will provide oversight of all supply chain functions, including purchasing/procurement, inventory control, production scheduling, customer service, and logistics management.

“The addition of Mark’s expertise has been instrumental in guiding departments through the improvement and execution of our supply chain model,” emphasizes Ed Becerra, Wixon’s vice president of operations. “This enhancement, under Mark’s leadership, will help drive efficiencies and ensure that supply chain operations and end-to-end processes are the first and last points for customer satisfaction.”
A resident of West Bend, Wagor enjoys spending time with his family, participating in water sports, and fishing.
