New supply chain leader turns a cost centre into a profit centre

Our client, a publicly-traded manufacturer, importer and retailer of local, national and international brands, was in search of a supply chain leader to succeed a tenured manager. With supply chain management being a key differentiator and at the heart of the company’s business model, the role called for a candidate with a unique combination of knowledge and industry relationships. We recruited an individual from a large multinational and relocated the candidate to our client’s headquarters. The hire has since saved the company tens of millions of dollars, and has transformed supply chain management from a cost centre into a revenue generator.
