In their respective roles at FLEXE, David and Deirdre will help drive business growth by advancing the FLEXE technology platform and attracting and retaining world-class talent.

David Glick, Chief Technology Officer, FLEXE
"Logistics technology is in my DNA. For two decades, I had a front row seat to the rise of eCommerce and the massive changes it spurred in warehousing and fulfillment. I joined FLEXE because the on-demand warehousing category they're pioneering will transform global logistics in the same way Amazon transformed global commerce. Everyone is either long or short on warehouse space. I couldn't imagine passing up the opportunity to be a part of leading that journey."
Deirdre Runnette, Chief People Officer and General Counsel, FLEXE
"I've always been attracted to the vibrance and innovation within the Seattle technology community. I look forward to continuing my career at FLEXE, a company that prioritizes people and culture. The team's energy is palpable. From leadership to the newest employees, people are excited to work at FLEXE."
Karl Siebrecht, CEO and Co-Founder, FLEXE
"Our technology and our people are the two ingredients essential to FLEXE's momentum and success. Deirdre and David's new roles with us represent our continued, relentless commitment to investing in both. As on-demand warehousing reaches a critical tipping point, I am inspired and humbled that two individuals at the top of their respective fields share our team's passion to pursue the massive market opportunity in front of us."
This news follows FLEXE's appointment of Matt Millen as Chief Revenue Officer in January, and the company's move to a new, 24,000 square-foot office space in Pioneer Square last month.
