OrderMyGear has assigned Dave Dutch as a chief executive officer (CEO), who was effective from January 1, 2019. Dutch was most recently the CEO of PayLease, where he helped the company grow to over 200 employees during his 7 year tenure. OrderMyGear, a leading group ecommerce platform for apparel and gear, drives growth and saves time for team sporting goods dealers.
“We have big ideas for the future of OrderMyGear, so it just made sense to hire someone with a track record of thinking big. Dave Dutch is a proven leader and innovator with a long history of scaling growth stage businesses off-the-charts. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to the team,” president and founder Kent McKeaigg of the company stated in a media statement.
Founded in 2008, OrderMyGear has revolutionised the group e-commerce space by providing online stores, order management, and supply chain software to the team sporting goods and group apparel markets. In 2018, OrderMyGear facilitated orders for thousands of dealers, tens of thousands of teams and groups, and millions of coaches, athletes, fans, and administrators. Also in 2018, Susquehanna Growth Equity (SGE) invested $35 million into OrderMyGear to fund expansion and product development.
“Dutch has a long track record of leading software companies through the step change from the growth stage to industry-leading scale. We are thrilled to welcome him to the team, and to work with him and Kent to build a category-defining company,” Ben Weinberg, managing director at SGE stated.
“I’ve always been drawn to entrepreneurial potential. OrderMyGear has shown themselves year after year to be a company committed to creating exciting, innovative products for their customers, but also helping their customers move the needle in terms of sales. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with this amazing team in order to make the next leap forward,” Dutch stated. (GK)
