 Prior to joining Warehouse Club, VanDeVelde was employed by Sears, Roebuck and Company for 29 years.

 VanDeVelde's most recent assignment at Sears was divisional vice president, sales-furniture, where he was responsible for $850 million in sales and business profitability in 600 retail stores and 38 free- standing Homelife Furniture Stores. He led and directed 50 district business managers.
