He joined GEODIS following its partnership with Kanga, a technology company solving on demand local delivery, where he served as Chief Operating Officer. His responsibilities include identifying, managing, and growing opportunities for the Kanga platform.
A veteran of the United States Army, Mr. Rhodeen’s executive career includes more than 10 years building start-ups and reorganized companies. As the first employee at Mascotopia, a manufacturer of child-development products, he built a national account base which led to its acquisition by Lexington, KY-based Hunter Manufacturing.
Hired as the Director of Sales & Marketing for home furnishings retailer Lovesac, following its exit from bankruptcy, Mr. Rhodeen built the retailer from 9 company-owned stores in 2008 to 60 in 2013 with year-over-year revenue growth of 45% annually during the same period. Essential to the company’s rapid growth was a transformation of customer interactions including sales, customer service, and logistics. In 2013 Lovesac was named the fastest-growing home furnishings retailer in the United States by Furniture Today.
Joining Kanga in January 2014 Mr. Rhodeen has developed strategic partnerships with SMBs, Fortune 500 companies, and innovative logistics partners.
