Our company founder and President, Gino Gonzalez, a service disabled United States Navy veteran, opened SJS in 2008 after spending 20+ years managing multi-million dollar commercial warehouse, logistics and distribution operations for familiar household brands like QVC and the Lillian Vernon Catalog.
Mr. Gonzalez previously served in the United States Navy as a USS Theodore Roosevelt flight deck Petty Officer responsible for the maintenance of all catapult and arresting gear subsystems, so he has many ties to Hampton Roads.
This extensive Navy and commercial experience means Mr. Gonzalez is adept at staffing, recruiting and managing personnel and projects for large-scale military and commercial enterprises in the industrial and logistics sectors.
Mr. Gonzalez’s logistics, warehousing and distribution-related expertise includes production control, process and productivity improvements, asset and materials management, inventory control, procurement and purchasing, raw material provisioning and sourcing, strategic sourcing for Maintenance-Repair-Overhaul (MRO) departments, fleet management, Supply Chain Management (SCM) and forecasting algorithms, cycle time improvement, internal controls, industrial safety and operation of various Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Warehouse Management Systems (WMS).
Mr. Gonzalez genuinely and enthusiastically enjoys working within the fields of logistics, supply chain management, distribution, and fulfillment, whether it is performed for private industry or the United States Government.
And as someone who has a knack for networking and making connections, Mr. Gonzalez has parlayed his industrial experience into developing Human Resources and labor support teams to assist industrial organizations like the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC).
Mr. Gonzalez, an avid sportsman and hunter in his free time, resides in Virginia Beach with his wife, Theresa, and their twin daughters. He looks forward to speaking with any Hampton Roads area hiring managers or contracting officers who are in urgent need of top-notch labor support.
