Tom R.

 Hexham | United Kingdom


Board-level international operations & supply chain leader in multi-site manufacturing, transport & infrastructure, automotive and FMCG sectors with ROI 16:1 in lean-driven global transformation integration relocation and new-product-launch roles.  In essence I build or fix the extended value-stream from sourcing, shipping and materials management through production/maintenance, engineering and spares management; removing  complexity, disruption, variation and risk, instilling standard ops., flexibility and consistency.

I have delivered strategic-change worth £290m/yr & materials  savings of £140m/yr; leading  highly successful transformation integration relocation and new-product-launch programmes.

A principled pragmatist, lean operations leader and member of the Lean Enterprise Institute I have set-up relocated or overhauled global manufacturing operations, supply chain and spares structures.
