He also will be joining the Optimas board of directors. The company also announced that Mike Tuffy, president, Optimas International, will also be joining the Optimas board.

Harms is responsible for strategies that drive growth, elevate operational excellence, and enhance customer service in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. He joined Optimas as COO earlier this year with a focus on the company’s distribution centers, sourcing and supply chain in North America.

Prior to joining Optimas, Harms held several senior leadership positions at DSC/CJ Logistics which culminated as senior vice president, Operations. While there, he built and guided high-performing teams to deliver operational excellence across multiple industries. His influential leadership style and data-driven approach to problem solving have consistently produced revenue and bottom-line growth with P&L statements over $100 million.

Tuffy will continue in his current role and will join the Optimas board of directors. Tuffy has been with Optimas Solutions for over 30 years.

“I’m very confident in Daniel’s ability to lead the Americas region and to continue building out a world-class team to drive efficiencies and improve results,” said T.J. Rosengarth, chairman of the Optimas board of directors. “I’m grateful for Mike’s energy and his unwavering commitment to Optimas’ success. I’m equally as confident in his ability to sustain the great team culture he has created and to continue delivering results.”

Harms and Tuffy will work closely to ensure alignment across both regions and make joint decisions where required to benefit the company as a whole.
