McConkey Names New Senior Buyer

McConkey recently appointed Vincent Li as its senior buyer.

Li, who is a supply chain professional with 10 years of experience in sourcing, inventory management and operations, will search the world for products to bring to its customers.

Li will focus on improving McConkey’s service levels and product portfolio to its customers by streamlining inventory, improving vendor communications and sourcing products that benefit McConkey’s customers.

For the past six years, Li has been the manager of international operations for All Natural Botanicals, a Florida-based corporation with manufacturing facilities in China. He has personally been involved with supply-chain issues with CVS, Michaels Arts & Crafts, Dollar Tree and other leading retailers.

“McConkey and the grower supply industry are both new for me, which offers a very exciting opportunity to take my skills as a retail buyer to the wholesale side,” Li says. “I have only been on board a short time but already feel part of the big family here. Everyone has been so friendly and has made the transition easy. I’m looking forward to my first buying trip to begin to expand the product offering for the company through international markets.”
