Storis has promoted industry veteran Doug Culmone, who’s been with the company since 1998, to president and COO.
“Doug has been an instrumental part of our growth and success,” says Don Surdoval, Storis’ CEO. “He continues to gain both personal and professional reward from helping others learn new skills and develop the next generation of leaders. He loves to and excels at solving problems and organizing teams. We are very excited for Doug to lead our company as president and COO.
When Culmone took on his first role at Storis, he focused on building a strong Storis team, which ultimately transformed client relationships into strategic partnerships. The foundation he laid is a cultural distinction still practiced by the Client Services team today. Culmone’s vantage point of the retail industry has served the direction of Storis well. In 2001, Culmone was promoted to vice president of operations.
Culmone has served as Storis’s COO since 2004. In this role, he oversees the operations of the Storis business and is responsible for the performance and development of employees. During his tenure, Storis has grown its team by 40%, expanded its client base significantly and has consistently been listed as one of the best employers in New Jersey since 2012.
