Staples Inc. has named Pittsford resident Joseph Doody as vice chairman to lead the company’s strategic reinvention.

Doody previously served as president of North American Commercial, Staples’ delivery operation.

His new responsibilities include strategic planning and business development, as well as overseeing the company’s operations in Australia and New Zealand. Having spent 16 years with the company, Doody is expected to make the transition into his new role a smooth one, Staples said.

“Joe has done a tremendous job leading our commercial businesses through a time of enormous change and growth,” said Ronald Sargent, Staples chairman and CEO in a statement. “His proven success and deep experience will be crucial to our reinvention as we continue to expand into new categories and build on our e-commerce and delivery capabilities to provide every product businesses need to succeed.”

The appointment takes effect Sunday.
