Herff Jones, the achievement division of Varsity Brands and the provider of graduation and educational products and services, appointed Ken Moore as Chief Technology Officer. Moore reports to Herff Jones President Steve Down and Varsity Brands Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Jaime Jaramillo. He will focus on creating and executing the roadmap to modernize and transform the company’s technology solutions and applications for the future.
“With the right blend of vision creation and hands-on execution, Ken is extremely passionate about technology and how it can both propel business performance and provide differentiation in the market,” said Down. “This can clearly be seen when you consider his past experience with Fortune 500 companies like Advance Auto Parts and Staples, where he held several senior leadership roles during times of critical IT transformation and reinvention across digital/online, brick and mortar retailing, supply chain as well as B2B and B2C models.” Moore was also a founding member of Staples.com, credited with accelerating the business plan through go-live and subsequently into a multibillion-dollar, award-winning omnichannel e-commerce business.
