DUKE CANNON SUPPLY CO., Supply Chain Manager




Duke Cannon Supply Company is a fast-growing premium men's grooming brand that is seeking hard-working, innovative, and solution-oriented team members to support its growth.  Our brand was founded in 2011 and has doubled in growth for the past four years.  We are distributed in over 30,000 retailers across the country and maintain a strong direct-to-consumer (DTC) business.  Even more, the brand has over 200k followers on Facebook, 90k on Instagram, and its products have been recognized in numerous publications.


The Duke Cannon management team is seeking a Supply Chain Manager to support online sales growth over the next several years.  This job is for rock stars only.  You must have a passion to work in a highly dynamic, fast growing, and entrepreneurial environment.   This role reports directly to the VP of Operations.
