OfficeMax Organizational Structure

OfficeMax’s U.S. Operations are organized along functional lines, as represented by the senior management team graphic below. In 2007, the structure of this team underwent some significant enhancements. The position of “executive vice president and chief operating officer” was established and filled by operations and supply chain veteran, Sam Martin. The reporting structure was adjusted to consolidate our Sales, Merchandising, Supply Chain and Communications functions under the purview of this new position.

This new arrangement will help OfficeMax improve operational performance, while maintaining focus on the strategy and vision that continue to shape the company.

The Human Resources department at OfficeMax is headed by the executive vice president, Human Resources. Housed within this department are the following: the vice president, Learning and Leadership Development; senior vice president, Human Resources Information Systems, Compensation and Benefits; senior director, Talent Acquisition; vice president, Human Resources Field Operations; and the director, Safety and Health. This reporting structure helps OfficeMax ensure that our associates have the knowledge, tools, resources and assistance they need to be successful in their careers at OfficeMax.
