One Stop Systems, Inc has recently appointed Kimberly Sentovich '89 to its board of directors. Sentovich brings more than 30 years of operational and senior-level executive experience to OSS across many areas of corporate enterprise, from finance, business development, e-Commerce and IT, to supply chain management, human resources, customer service and public relations.
Sentovich currently serves as a consultant to private equity portfolio companies and retailers in the U.S. and Canada. She was previously senior vice president of operations at Torrid, a retailer of women’s apparel where she oversaw 550 company-owned stores in U.S. and Canada. Earlier, she served as executive vice president of stores and logistics for Gymboree, a retailer of children’s clothes and accessories, where she was responsible for 1,300 company-owned stores in North America. Before Gymboree, she served in several roles with increasing responsibility at Walmart, including divisional senior vice president of operations. She established Walmart’s U.S. Women in Retail Field program and Women in Leadership Conference while serving on Walmart CEO’s Global Council of Women Leaders. Prior to Walmart, she served The Home Depot in several roles over the span of 15 years, lastly as regional vice president of operations.
She recently reflected on the role her Bryn Mawr education has played in her career success:
"I believe that a liberal arts education gives you a broad, strong foundational knowledge base that allows you to continue to learn and be curious about the world. In today’s business environment one has to keep learning to keep up. I am grateful for the amazing women that have supported me over the years. It is more than just a group of friends from school that I talk, text or email almost every week, but it is the broader group - the class of 1989 - that is full of women who support each other everyday. This is something truly unique to Bryn Mawr."
Sentovich double majored in Philosophy and Political Science with a minor in Economics.
