Software programme solution provider PureWRX has added experienced supply chain expert Martin Garvin to its Board of Advisors.  

Garvin brings a wealth of experience and knowledge from his time in senior executive roles at Dell and Juniper Networks.

PureWRX is ramping up certified pre-owned programmes with major customers in the US and Europe, and Garvin will advise on the most efficient ways to expand supply and refurbishment operations.

PureWRX CEO David Schofman said that “As our company expands internationally, the complexity of how we serve our customers will only increase. Martin’s experience with large-scale operations will be an invaluable asset for our team as we address those challenges.”

From 2001 to 2008, Mr. Garvin was at Dell Computer, where he was first the Vice President of Worldwide Procurement and then later Senior Vice President and Chief Procurement Officer.


In these roles he oversaw the strategic leadership and management of Dell global supply chain, manufacturing, and procurement operations.

He led a worldwide team with direct reports in commodity management, supplier engineering, materials, logistics, general procurement, and international trading. Prior to Dell, Garvin held significant Operations positions at Sun Microsystems and Hewlett Packard.

Garvin was most recently at Juniper Networks, where he was the Senior Vice President of Global Operations.

While there, he directed global projects and operations to achieve the overall growth, productivity, and profitability objectives of an organization delivering high-performance network solutions to service providers, enterprise organisations, and the public sector.
