WAXIE Sanitary Supply announced the promotion of Sandy Nourian to vice president of procurement.

Nourian began her career at WAXIE in March of 2000 when she was hired as a purchasing manager for the Santa Ana, California branch. Over the years she has held many roles within the procurement team and today she leads a staff of dedicated professionals.

“Over the course of Sandy’s career with WAXIE, she has enabled the company to grow our sales through her passion and dedication to all things procurement,” says Eric Cohen, vice president of Supply Chain for WAXIE, in a recent press release.

Nourian has been instrumental in reinforcing the organizational growth of the company by championing the integration of asset software, supporting multiple acquisitions, designing and implementing a procurement re-organization, and earning both an MBA and Black Belt in Lean Six Sigma.

In addition to these efforts Sandy has planned several WAXIE community outreach events to support our local military. These include the Pocket Flag Project to honor currently deployed (and ready to deploy) service men and women, and a food and supply drive to welcome home members of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit back to Camp Pendleton after a six-month deployment.

“Sandy is a shining example of a WAXIE leader: Always learning, always growing, and always willing to do more than expected,” says Jeff Roberts, WAXIE’s president and chief operating officer. “Throughout her career, she has proven that success comes through hard work, and she has earned this promotion to be named as an officer within WAXIE, due to her numerous contributions, expertise, tenacity and her commitment to serving others.”
