Stord Hires Transportation and Sales Industry Leaders
Stord, the Cloud Supply Chain leader, today announced the addition of Doug King as Vice President of Transportation and Dan Klenkar as Vice President of Sales to its leadership team. Doug and Dan bring a combined 35+ years of industry experience and will use their expertise to continue Stord’s accelerated growth trajectory and ensure DTC and omnichannel brands deliver exceptional experiences for their customers.
Doug joins as VP of Transportation to lead the development and commercialization of Stord’s full suite of transportation services including drayage, truckload (FTL), less than truckload (LTL), and Stord Parcel.

More recently, he led transportation at Ferguson Enterprises, the nation’s largest distributor of residential and commercial construction products, focusing on FTL, LTL, and parcel.
As VP of Sales, Dan will leverage his 20+ years of supply chain and logistics sales experience to ensure Stord customers reap the benefits of Stord’s port-to-porch logistics, paired with Stord One Commerce software. Dan was most recently with Nimble Robotics as Head of Robotic Sales. Prior to that, Dan spent 10 years at Radial where he led the team to a significant increase in annual revenue.
