GameStop's used software and hardware business is responsible for a large part of the retailer's success, and that wouldn't be the case unless consumers found used products to be nearly as good as new. That's where the retailer's refurbishment center comes in -- scratched disks are buffed up and well-loved consoles are made ready for a new rooms. GameStop has hired Bruce Kulp to head up the company's supply chain and oversee the refurbishment centers as SVP of supply chain and refurbishment. GameStop's two distribution centers employ 1,500 people, and Kulp will manage them all in addition to the refurbishment center. "I am delighted to welcome Bruce to the company," says GameStop CEO Paul Raines. "His broad background in supply chain and manufacturing will be an enormous asset to GameStop." Kulp has spent 25 years in the logistics and supply chain arena, having held operations and management roles with companies like Tech Data Corporation, the Home Shopping Network and Gigalife LLC.
