ANOKA, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 23, 2024--

Revelyst, a collective of world-class maker brands that design and manufacture performance gear and precision technologies and a segment of Vista Outdoor Inc. (NYSE: VSTO), today announced the appointment of Joe Beck as Chief Supply Chain Officer, effective April 22. In the third quarter, Revelyst launched GEAR Up, the company’s plan to simplify its business model, deliver increased efficiency and profitability, and reinvest in its highest potential brands to accelerate growth and transformation. The appointment of a seasoned, transformational supply chain, sourcing and logistics leader is key to helping Revelyst and its brands begin this new chapter.

Beck most recently served as Vice President of Global Supply Chain for embecta (NASDAQ: EMBC), a medical technology company where he oversaw global supply chain and distribution operations, including the overhaul of their global network design, planning, logistics, and trade technology and change management leadership. Beck was part of embecta’s leadership team executing the separation from Becton Dickinson and Co. (NYSE: BDX). During the transition, he helped establish the company’s supply chain infrastructure while ensuring continuity of supply and mitigating customer disruptions. His ability to design and deploy global supply chain operations for a standalone business — including hiring talent, building effective teams and developing processes, analytics and technology — made him an ideal candidate to be Revelyst’s first Chief Supply Chain Officer.

“Bringing a change agent like Joe to Revelyst’s leadership team is critical for our goal of becoming the industry’s No. 1 house of brands,” said Eric Nyman, CEO of Revelyst. “He has a unique talent for transforming a company’s supply chain by consolidating facilities and building new capabilities, which have a direct impact on the bottom line. Joe will help revolutionize Revelyst at the enterprise, platform and brand level, and we welcome his innovative thinking as we continue to build our culture of empowerment and excellence.”

Before embecta, Beck worked for Medtronic and UPS, two global Fortune 500 companies where he streamlined and optimized supply chain operations, which he will replicate and enhance in this new role. Beck is the latest executive to join Revelyst’s growing management team, including Nyman, CFO Andy Keegan, General Counsel Jung Choi and CHRO Joyce Butler. The addition of Beck will provide Revelyst with the supply chain and sourcing savvy needed in an increasingly competitive and complex global economy.

“This is the opportunity of a lifetime because it combines my outdoor passions with my love of helping companies become more efficient and effective moving products and information across the global supply chain,” said Beck. “I look forward to building a world-class team whose sole focus is optimizing the way Revelyst does business, building scale across our portfolio and developing innovative strategies that give our company and our brands a significant competitive advantage to accelerate growth.”

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Derrick White stood stoically at midcourt as his teammates celebrated Monday night.

He saw Jayson Tatum toss the ball high into the air, Al Horford run toward the coaching staff and looking for his son long before Jaylen Brown hoisted the Eastern Conference finals MVP trophy. Even coach Joe Mazzulla shared the moment with his wife.

White, meanwhile, seemed ready to get back to work after making the tie-breaking 3-pointer with 43 seconds left, giving the Boston Celtics a 105-102 victory and their second trip to the Eastern Conference finals with a 4-0 sweep over the Indiana Pacers.

“Great shot. We work on that all the time, two-on-one reads,” Brown said after scoring 29 points, grabbing six rebounds and blocking a key shot with 65 seconds left to preserve the lead. “Before that, I told D White just to stay ready and that was a big shot, a big shot to send us to the finals.”

White scored just 16 points and made just 1 of 8 3s before making the decisive shot from the corner. Until then, he seemed to have taken a back seat to Brown, Tatum, who had 26 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists, Jrue Holiday and even the 37-year-old Horford.

But when the Celtics needed a basket to chase the 18th NBA title in franchise history, the poised White delivered with a shot that will be remembered forever in Boston. The Celtics will now face either Dallas or Minnesota, which meet Tuesday in Game 4.

The Mavericks have a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven Western Conference finals.

“We feel confident, we feel comfortable in any type of game, and we feel we’ve got answers for anything at us,” White said. “We’ve just got to find the right ones.”

Boston’s victory came exactly one year after White’s tip-in rallied from the Celtics from a 3-0 deficit to tie the conference finals against Miami — only to lose Game 7 at home. This year, they've won seven straight playoff games, are 6-0 on the road and are 3-0 in elimination games.

It certainly wasn’t easy against the Pacers, who were a perfect 6-0 on their home court before ending the season with two straight losses at a sold out Gainbridge Fieldhouse. Indiana lost three times in the series despite holding leads or being tied in the final minute. It happened again Monday as Boston pitched a shutout for the final 3 1/2 minutes.

Coach Rick Carlisle promised his team would fight hard to extend its season — and, as usual, this young roster didn’t disappoint.

Tempers flared briefly in the third when Pacers center Myles Turner knocked guard White to the ground, Brown, who was named the MVP of the series, grabbed Turner’s shoulder and Turner shoved Brown away. Turner was called for an offensive foul as he and Brown each drew technical fouls.

There was another scary moment when Brown's hand hit T.J. McConnell in the face, sending him crashing to the ground. The refs ruled it was a common foul following a replay review. But the two frays didn’t change the back-and-forth tenor of this game — or this series — and the Pacers never backed down.

“Our guys embraced it,” Carlisle said of his team’s effort without Haliburton and throughout the playoffs. “Give them (the Celtics) credit for the stuff they pulled off at the end of the last two games. They simply made more plays.”

Andrew Nembhard had 24 points, 10 assists and six rebounds but missed a potentially tying 3-pointer in the closing seconds and the Pacers never got the ball again. Pascal Siakam added 19 points and 10 rebounds for Indiana while T.J. McConnell had 15 points and Aaron Nesmith had 14.

But the Celtics dominated late again.

They pulled within 102-100 on Tatum’s dunk with 3:12 to go, tied the score with 2:40 left on Brown’s mid-range jumper and then took the lead on White’s 3.

In between, Boston forced two turnovers and Brown blocked Nembhard’s short at the rim with 1:05 left. Indiana had one more chance when Tatum missed a 3 with 8 seconds left, but Jrue Holiday chased down the rebound and ran out the clock before Indiana could foul.

"They fought us hard to the wire, they have pride as a team. They didn’t want to give up,” a relieved Tatum said. “We missed bunnies all night. I knew we were due for one. That was a big time shot.”
