Panariagroup USA announces promotion of Ashley Donaldson to Vice President of Operations

Panariagroup USA is excited to announce the promotion of Ashley Donaldson to the role of Vice President of Operations. Ashley’s appointment is a reflection of her unwavering commitment and exceptional service in customer relationship building and operational management.

In her new role, Ashley will oversee all aspects of Operations at Panariagroup USA. Her strategic vision and leadership are expected to drive the company forward, managing our teams with a focus on enhancing customer acquisition, satisfaction, and retention. Ashley will work closely with senior executives to shape our organizational goals, directing operations across various departments such as the National Distribution Center, Customer Care, Transportation, Procurement, Supply Chain, Quality, and Private Label Customers.

Effective immediately, Ashley will report directly to Leonardo Pesce, CEO of Panariagroup USA. This alignment ensures clear communication and a unified approach towards our company’s objectives.

“It is with immense pride that we announce Ashley Donaldson’s promotion to Vice President of Operations,” said Leonardo Pesce, CEO of Panariagroup USA. “Ashley’s unparalleled dedication and strategic acumen have been pivotal in shaping the trajectory of Florida Tile, and for this last year, Panariagroup USA. Her promotion is not just a personal milestone but a collective achievement for our company as we continue to embrace diversity and excellence. Ashley embodies the spirit of leadership and innovation, and I am confident that under her guidance, our operations will reach new heights of success.”

An alumnus of the University of Vermont and Midway University, Ashley’s academic background in Animal Science and Business Entrepreneurship, coupled with her MBA, have equipped her with a unique perspective on managing generational differences in the workforce—a subject on which she has extensively researched and lectured.

In recognition of her exceptional leadership abilities, Ashley was honored with the 2019 Coverings Rock Star award after only two years in the flooring industry. This accolade is a testament to her outstanding potential and the impact she has made in our industry.

This promotion also marks a significant moment as Ashley becomes the first woman to ever hold this prestigious position within our organization. Panariagroup USA is proud to celebrate this milestone and Ashley’s well-deserved recognition.
