Fulfill Appoints Jonathan Rowe New Vice President of Operations
Neptune, NJ – Fulfill, a leader in alleviating hunger and building food security in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, has named Jonathan Rowe as its new Vice President of Operations.
“Our mission calls us to meet the unprecedented need we currently face with an unprecedented response. We’ve set an ambitious goal – to distribute food for more than 12 million meals this year – and in Jon, we’ve found an operations expert with the background, experience, and leadership skills to make it happen,” said Triada Stampas, president and CEO of Fufill. “He has a proven record in leading organizations to improved quality and processes in moving product and will be an invaluable member of the team.”
Rowe joins Fulfill from Clutter Moving and Storage, after spending the last year as senior operations manager for the Northeast Region. In this role, Rowe oversaw four warehouses across the company’s most complex and busiest region, including three new launches in 2022 because of an acquisition merger.
Prior to Clutter, Rowe spent seven years in various operations, quality and process improvement roles at E-Commerce distribution centers at Wayfair and Amazon. As site director at Wayfair, he oversaw the largest fulfillment center in the network, driving cross-functional improvement projects in quality and safety. During his four years at Amazon, Rowe led teams at the department, operation and process level while developing internal talent in each role and driving sustainable results.
Rowe is a US Navy Veteran, twice deployed to Afghanistan. He currently resides in Howell, NJ with his wife, Kaelyn and two children, Brielle and Nathan. In his free time, Rowe enjoys spending time outdoors and hiking with his rescue dog, Jordan.
“I am very excited about joining the Fulfill team and having a position that allows me to work in service to the community,” said Rowe. “The mission of Fulfill, the impact they have and what will be accomplished in the future are all reasons why I look forward to this opportunity.”

We supply over 1,000,000 meals per month by distributing food to nearly 300 feeding agencies in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, including soup kitchens, food pantries, and shelters, and by delivering food to families, children, seniors, veterans, and more.
