Employee Spotlight: Randall Lemke

Sock Club has some exciting news to share! We've recently hired a Senior Operations Coordinator to help make our socks even more high quality, even faster, and in even lower quantities.

Have you ever thought about how many companies there are, just in your area, that produce custom t-shirts?

While we would never call custom printing anything easy, screenprinting onto a t-shirt that is already made and knitting a logo into a sock while it is being made are two different processes, and the latter has a bit more complexity.

Knitting it into the sock, in only a couple of days, while making a small quantity adds even more complexity.

That’s why we are able to proudly say that we can make custom knitted branded socks faster than everyone else - it’s really hard to do.

Because of that, we need to keep our Operations and Production team staffed with the quickest problem solvers in the business.

Randall Lemke joined the Sock Club team in September 2023 as a Senior Operations Coordinator, helping to level up our supply chain management and distribution networks.
