Veteran executive Dave Dutch has been named as the new chief executive officer at OrderMyGear, a Dallas-based provider of e-commerce software for apparel and gear, effective Jan. 1.
Dutch was most recently the CEO of PayLease, where for seven years, he helped with steady growth at the company, which now has more than 200 employees.
“We have big ideas for the future of OrderMyGear, so it just made sense to hire someone with a track record of thinking big,” President and founder Kent McKeaigg said in a statement. “Dave Dutch is a proven leader and innovator with a long history of scaling growth stage businesses off-the-charts. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to the team.”
OrderMyGear was founded in 2008, and has grown in the group e-commerce space to provide online stores, order management, and supply chain software to the team sporting goods and group apparel markets.
In September, the company announced that it had signed a lease for 23,000 square feet of space in the East Quarter development in downtown Dallas, signaling an expansion of its headquarters.
“We have big ideas for the future of OrderMyGear, so it just made sense to hire someone with a track record of thinking big.”
Last year, OrderMyGear said it facilitated orders for thousands of dealers, tens of thousands of teams and groups, and millions of coaches, athletes, fans, and administrators.
“We have big ideas for the future of OrderMyGear, so it just made sense to hire someone with a track record of thinking big,” McKeaigg said.
In 2018, OrderMyGear received a $35 million investment from Susquehanna Growth Equity to fund expansion and product development.
In a release, Dutch said he’s always been “drawn” to entrepreneurial potential.
“OrderMyGear has shown themselves year after year to be a company committed to creating exciting, innovative products for their customers, but also helping their customers move the needle in terms of sales,” he said.
