John leads our award winning supply chain and procurement practice, having joined Baringa from another leading global consultancy in 2015. John has over twenty years’ experience in cross-industry supply chain and procurement, and started his career in the logistics and warehousing area. Since then, John has developed his skill set to include supply chain planning, manufacturing and procurement. For the majority of his career, John has worked across Europe, the Middle East, North America, South-East Asia and Africa in consumer products, retail, pharmaceuticals and telecoms, and industrial sectors, such as oil and gas, utilities, mining and government.

John leads Baringa’s biggest engagements within supply chain and procurement, working up to board level on strategic change programs. This has included a four-year partnership that has transformed the supply chain of a leading business in the telecoms sector, the development of a supply chain planning program at a global consumer products leader, transforming logistics of a major UK grocery retailer, and redesigning the supply chain and procurement operating model of a global aid organisation.
