Professional Summary

I team with Colliers International industrial brokers to provide supply chain consulting services ranging from strategic capability assessments and development to operational guidance on inventory management, transportation, procurement, and omni-channel distribution network optimization.

Prior to joining Colliers, I was the senior vice president of supply chain transformation at Newell Brands, where I focused on distribution and transportation optimization as well as optimal network design across a $15 billion portfolio of more than 130 brands.

Before Newell Brands, I spent 15 years at Walgreens Boots Alliance, most recently as the group vice president of Supply Chain Strategy and Retail Transformation. Previous roles included group vice president of global inventory and transportation, head of corporate supply chain functions, and leader of the logistics and distribution engineering and technology group. I worked with the team at Walgreens to build a world-class distribution network to support a six-fold growth in store count over a 10-year period.

I also worked in the Management Consulting Practice at Cap Gemini and Ernst & Young for eight years prior to joining Walgreens Boots Alliance, where I deployed process and technology optimization solutions for leading global retail and consumer packaged goods companies.

With nearly 25 years of large-scale supply chain expertise, I bring to bear a relevant and impactful blend of roles and experience to help companies leverage supply chain as a strategic differentiator and a competitive advantage.
