"Ted`s background is a perfect complement to U.S. Auto Parts," says Shane Evangelist, CEO. "He comes from an organization where he optimized a complex, multi-national e-commerce business model, like ours, and maximized that model within a low-margin industry. I am confident he will excel at coordinating the constantly moving cost thresholds and logistics of drop-ship and stock-ship distribution as he has previously, as well as the variable cost model of off-shore provision of services."
