Helping organizations identify impactful global end-to-end supply chain strategy and operations leaders
The best companies know that to stay competitive in a time of rapid change, consumer disruption and the fast pace of globalization, they need to treat their Operations and Supply Chain as a strong competitive asset rather than a cost line. Since multiple levers within an organization’s global operations and supply chain directly affect profitability and can cause serious exposure, our team of global experts initiates the important conversations and begins its contributions at the Board and CEO level, helping organizations address complex topics such as future customers’ needs and strategic partnerships, and weigh risk against opportunity.
Chief Operations Officers and Chief Supply Chain Officers
Today’s effective leaders operate across the full spectrum of the chain.
Leading companies not only digitize their Supply Chain but they handle their end-to-end global operations as a critical source of competitive advantage. Once seen as a chain of goods running from point A to point B, today's supply chains function more like an intricate web of integrated, global relationships. As a result, today's CSCOs are strategic relationship builders who recognize the vast interconnectivity across global supply chains. No longer focused solely on operations, the COO now is also concerned with strategy development, product and service innovation, and even sales. COOs and CSCOs today must both think about long-term strategy and profitable growth as they make both operationally possible. With a CEO's mindset, these leaders are adaptable and comfortable interacting with people at all levels, while also functioning as analytical gurus and interpreting vast amounts of data.
Chief Procurement Officers
We identify leaders who bring innovation into the company, improve competitive advantage and contribute to overall enterprise success by creating value.
The CPO’s role is central in many organizations. Transformational procurement leaders have evolved from focusing on price and cost to a more holistic orientation toward value, championing change and innovation within and outside the organization by navigating through complex environments with powerful stakeholders. CPOs are driven by actions and results, thus impacting the bottom line. They lead with vision, build high-performing teams, and they act with honor and integrity, with accountability for supplier risk on the first tier and often even on the second and third tiers.
