Global Packaged Goods
Our client was a global packaged goods company, a leader in its sector. With revenues of $10bn the company’s business was highly complex. However the supply chain had always been managed regionally & as a result there was variance in business practice, cost & performance. The client felt the appointment of a Global Supply Chain Officer would provide a functional focus & would be a key strategic pillar of the future success & growth of the business
The client specified a supply chain leader who had an evident understanding of end supply chain best practice, had substantial global experience & leadership skills. An understanding of commodities & B2B as well as consumer markets was also required
Our Approach & Strategy
We identified a target list of companies who were recognised as both delivering supply chain excellence & developing outstanding management talent. Separately we identified businesses who had transitioned from a regional to global supply chain organisation
We produced a globally diverse shortlist & the appointed candidate came with a strong set of global credentials & a expertise in commodities
Global Drinks Giant
Our client was a global drinks giant with a roster of iconic brands. Pivotal to the growth of the business was its ability to anticipate & respond to changing consumer preferences, to enter new markets & build scale in new segments.
Public Listed Retailer
Our client was one of the UK’s largest public listed retailers. The company had undergone a period of sustained poor performance & was seen to be lacking both in product & customer innovation & a robust turnaround plan.
