There is a tremendous amount of value that can be leveraged through the successful design, implementation, and execution of a supply chain. Whether through in-house or outsourced arrangements, organizations are able to differentiate themselves by harnessing their supply chains to deliver exceptional customer experiences.

I am a passionate supply chain leader with extensive experience in the Canadian marketplace. I have designed, implemented, and operated supply chains for automotive, high tech, healthcare, and consumer goods organizations. I also have extensive experience in the point-to-point courier market and mission critical service parts fulfillment operations.

I have a strong appreciation for the unique differences and needs each industry has with the ability to translate needs and wants into an efficient and capable supply chain solution.
