Products with a Purpose – Meet Our Merchandising Team

Posted by

We strive to know what our customers need before they do. This is what drives our team. Our growing merchandising group is an integral part of our business, ensuring we provide the best products and solutions for our customers…always. This team anticipates market trends to drive decisions that spark product category growth and engage our customers throughout their buying process. Our merchants work with designers, product developers, and strategic vendors, uncovering opportunities to create seamless digital shopping experiences. Recently, the team rebranded and developed new product lines that provide solutions for the unique worklife challenges our customers face each day. Our merchandising team is made up of passionate, committed, and growth-oriented individuals. Meet a few members of our extraordinary team:

Anthony | Associate Category Merchant

“My favorite aspect of merchandising is how many hats I get to wear on any given day. I’ll go from redefining how we go to market with our sales force, to negotiating opportunities with vendors, to presenting our strategy to the leadership team.”

Michelle | Senior Category Merchant

“I love my team; we’re dynamic, we work hard and have fun. I look for teammates that are reliable, consistent, communicate constructively, and pause to listen openly.”

Sasha | Director, Divisional Merchandise Management

“When hiring for my team, I look for entrepreneurial tenacity, a love of math, the passion to learn and evolve, and the relentless scrutiny of product. We must solve our customer’s problems every day and orchestrate the best solution.”

Our merchandising team is focused on identifying and designing the right products for our customers and their evolving work lives. Work is happening in new and different ways – at home, on the road, in the air or on the ground – which is why it’s important we continue to develop and share products with a purpose.

This is an exciting time to join Anthony, Michelle, and Sasha as they embark on the greatest transformation in Staples history. Visit our careers site for a full list of merchandising opportunities.
