El Khatib Joins NAGASE Specialty Materials

NAGASE Specialty Materials (NSM), Itasca, Illinois, has appointed Abdul Aziz El Khatib as a buyer. The Chicago, Illinois, resident will focus on the industrial side of NSM, managing domestic purchasing and inventory for its performance chemical lines.

Prior to joining the NAGASE team, he had relatable work experience in a retail environment with Meijer, a Midwest-based grocery chain ranked No. 14 on Forbes’ list of America’s largest privately held companies. He not only gained valuable customer service experience but also was tasked with forecasting and replenishing stock.

“I’m working the entire supply chain from product ordering, shipping, delivery to NSM and ultimately to our customers,” said El Khatib. “NAGASE is a good fit. I had a very good introduction to logistics and supply chain through the pandemic as we had to deal with supply chain issues. Getting an item from point A to point B, in the fastest way possible, intrigued me.”
