SquadLocker, the uniform and custom team gear provider, appointed Jim Day as vice president operations to support the company’s growth and expansion.

SquadLocker has ramped up its inventory, now supporting more than 4,000 custom, online stores for schools, sports teams, organizations, and businesses. The company has added more than 1,000 stores in July as schools and sports teams gear up to acquire custom team gear, school uniforms, masks, and more for the fall.

“We are thrilled that Jim Day has joined the SquadLocker team,” said Gary Goldberg, CEO of SquadLocker. “He has delivered record-breaking performance and multi-million dollar improvements for market-leading brands through the supply chain and operations optimization. We believe he will position SquadLocker to continue delivering high quality, custom apparel that customers have come to expect at even a faster pace that is now required.”

Previously, Day was vice president of global supply chain at ’47, a sports lifestyle brand founded in Boston and partner of the MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA, MLS, MLL, and over 900 collegiate programs. He was also co-founder of the American Headwear Alliance, a coalition of companies and associations that comprise the cap and headwear industry in the U.S. Day has also served in various companies in operations and supply chain roles.

“More than ever, there is a demand for affordable, custom apparel and masks that are quickly and easily ordered and delivered fast,” said Day. “With SquadLocker’s award-winning manufacturing processes, the company is in the position to support this explosive growth. I am delighted to be leading operations to ensure systems are in place for the current and future needs of our growing customer base.”

The company, based in Warwick, RI, has recently expanded into custom club apparel and uniforms for schools as well as added customizable community masks and face coverings to its line-up. SquadLocker also expanded its sales and marketing team with Jeanne Hopkins hired as chief revenue officer earlier this year as well as Matt Desilet as marketing director.
