Written by David Schollaert

Industry veteran Chris Shipp has joined Reibus, the online metals marketplace, as Vice President of Strategic Partnerships.

Shipp most recently served as Vice President of Supply Chain at Priefert Manufacturing in Mt. Pleasant, Texas.

“As an incredible industry leader, it is fantastic that Chris is coming to Reibus to help us continue to build our strategic partnerships with our customers, not only in the U.S. but around the world,” said John Armstrong, CEO and founder of Reibus. 

In his new role, Shipp believes he will be part of the future transformation of the global metals industry. “The value of how important the culture is to the workforce is something Reibus puts at the forefront; bringing world-class talent together and empowering them to run and lead the evolution is what brought me to Reibus,” said Shipp. “It is also exciting to see a company that isn’t afraid to look outside the box and do things differently, putting buyers and sellers together while handling the complexities of logistics and finance.”

Atlanta-based Reibus, founded in 2018, is an independent SaaS-enabled marketplace that helps hundreds of businesses buy and sell industrial material. Its advanced technology and deep industry knowledge improve supply-chain efficiency by reducing lead time, improving inventory, and streamlining finance and freight services.
