OrderMyGear, the sporting goods and custom apparel platform, announced the appointment of Dave Dutch to the position of CEO. Dutch was most recently CEO of PayLease, where he helped the company grow to over 200 employees during his seven year tenure.
“We have big ideas for the future of OrderMyGear, so it just made sense to hire someone with a track record of thinking big,” said President and Founder Kent McKeaigg. “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.”
Founded in 2008, OrderMyGear has revolutionized 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,” said Ben Weinberg, Managing Director at Susquehanna Growth Equity. “We are thrilled to welcome him to the team, and to work with him and Kent to build a category-defining company.”
“I’ve always been drawn to entrepreneurial potential,” Dutch said. “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’s position as CEO was effective January 1, 2019.
