If your brand faces an operational challenge, Alex McNealey has probably already solved it.
Today, Alex is the Chief Operating Officer at Thuma, a DTC high-end bedroom furniture brand that has experienced explosive growth since its founding in 2018.
But before Thuma, Alex managed JCrew’s business strategy back when ecommerce was taking off in the late 90s. And before that, he headed up operations at Pure Digital Technologies (which Cisco acquired in 2009) and leading women’s lifestyle brand Popsugar.
And he is using all these diverse career experiences to optimize Thuma for scale.
In this episode of The Checkout, Alex walks us through a career’s worth of insights into operational excellence you can’t afford to miss. Namely, what assumptions and levers unlock growth, and how Thuma uses that knowledge to maintain flexibility amidst supply chain disruptions.
