Gravity’s founders have years of experience in the supply chain management industry, but none in running a brand new company. So one of their first priorities was to find someone with relevant industry experience who could also shepherd the company through the first year and beyond. They found that person in Stephanie Johnson, who joined Gravity in May 2015 as its Head of Marketing & Growth.
Stephanie brings a unique combination of sales and marketing savvy, first-hand familiarity with managing supply chains, and experience building a startup into a global success story.
In 2010, Stephanie joined Toddy Gear, a startup manufacturer of consumer electronics accessories, to establish new sales channels. She quickly assumed the additional responsibilities of building business systems and infrastructure to meet new account business requirements. She landed the company’s first major distribution win: Target U.S. That not only drove Toddy’s rapid growth during its first year, it paved the way for the creation of additional global distribution channels. Other duties included managing vendor relationships for web development, Third Party Logistics (3PL), Freight Forwarder and EDI.
Stephanie has nearly a decade of experience in sales and marketing for consumer goods companies that includes two years on the operations team at TCC, a merchandise based brand loyalty company.
Having worked with Gravity’s primary target customers - consumer products brands and retailers - she understands the operational and sales challenges they face.
Her priorities in 2016 are twofold: lead the effort to get the word out about how Gravity’s suite of apps can help solve the many challenges supply chain managers face; and ensure that the company and its apps evolve to meet the customers’ short- and long-term needs.
