Meet Dean Perigard, Director of Operations for a2b Fulfillment. Dean joined a2b in April of 2015 after a successful 14-year career with Orchard Brands, a catalog company with numerous brands, where he served as the General Manager of their Eatonton, Ga. distribution center. If he is not overseeing warehousing and logistics activity, you most likely will find Dean playing eighteen holes of golf at Harbor Club, one of his favorite courses at Lake Oconee.
What is something most people don’t know about you?
Growing up as a child my family moved around a lot due to my father having a career in the military. I thought I would live in one place my entire adult life and I did the opposite of that living from coast to coast.
What do you like about working at a2b?
Everyone is hands-on. It is exciting to see the growth that we have experienced over the last several months. I love watching everyone working together as a team to accomplish our goals on a day-to-day basis.
What do you do in your free time when not at work?
I like to travel and play golf. I traveled to Italy in 2014 and really enjoyed Florence in particular. The people, historical sites and of course the food were all exceptional. I can’t wait to return. I’m actually preparing for another trip to Europe with my sons this Spring. I can’t wait.
