Jersey City, N.J. — Imperial Dade, a leading distributor of foodservice packaging and janitorial supplies, has hired Devashish Saxena as its first chief digital officer. He will be focused on identifying how the organization can use the latest digital technologies to create a world-class omnichannel customer experience powered by data science.

For over 20 years, Devashish Saxena has built digital organizations and guided them in making data-driven decisions to deliver business impact. Most recently Devashish led digital transformation as vice president, chief digital officer at PPG, a Pittsburgh-based coatings manufacturer. Prior to that, Devashish served as vice president, global digital business and e-commerce at Rexel, a France-based omnichannel distributor of electrical supplies. Prior to Rexel, he led the digital journeys at UK-based Premier Farnell (now part of Avnet) and Texas Instruments in Dallas.

“Devashish is an excellent addition to our organization, contributing his expertise and passion to further develop and execute our digital strategy,” says Charlie D’Elia Jr., chief commercial officer of Imperial Dade. “Digital transformation has a critical role to play in our disciplined growth plans, and his experience and leadership will be invaluable in the years ahead.”

Founded in 1935, Imperial Dade serves more than 90,000 customers across North America. Since Chairman Robert Tillis and CEO Jason Tillis acquired the company in 2007, the company has grown both organically and through acquisitions to become a leader in the disposable foodservice and janitorial supplies industry.
