Doolittle oversees the software engineering team. One of his main responsibilities is managing Malouf’s internal software. These systems include shipping software, customer relations software, inventory and warehouse management software, supply chain/purchasing management software and accounts receivable software.
“I’m passionate about software development and using my expertise to promote business profitability and success,” Doolittle said. “With my new position at Malouf, I’m excited to help build the most effective software solutions that support our retail partners and their specific needs.”

He was also an adjunct professor and acting department head of computer science at Stevens-Henager College.
Dutson directs the efforts of Malouf’s web development team. His department oversees the operations of their Wholesale Resource Center (WRC), as well as their product websites like maloufhome.com, weekenderbedding.com and saltflathome.com. He works closely with each team member and educates them on best practices and using outside-the-box strategies to give Malouf a competitive edge.
“I’m excited to be part of creating a close-knit strategy between our brands, marketing, design and development teams,” Dutson said. “Malouf is known in the industry for their in-house capabilities. I hope to keep that reputation while streamlining internal processes and finding new ways to grow.”
