Chris has worked for a number of blue chip businesses culminating in a number of Supply Chain Awards. Most notably during his time at Costa Express, winning the Supply Chain Excellence Award for technology. Former colleagues have commented that
“Chris is a real asset and adds value to any organisation.”
Chris is considered a thought leader in his field, published in a number of supply chain magazines and has delivered speeches at supply chain conferences in Europe and North America.
Graham Tomkins, the CEO and founder of Goodwill Solutions Group anticipates that Chris will be a great addition to the Senior Management Team, driving the vision of the business as a commercial enterprise which invests and supports the local community. He will also develop the training, educational and recruitment aspects of the business.
Chris, who is well known in the Supply Chain Industry, is joining the business from Costa Coffee.
His early 3PL experience gained at Christian Salvesen, has been the foundation for his subsequent roles – working with high growth businesses, predominantly in the retail sector. By using innovative and creative supply chain solutions, matched with an understanding of how to harness technology Chris will drive both quality of service and operating efficiency throughout the Group.
Graham strongly believes that increased recognition of social businesses means that now is the time for Goodwill to expand its social impact which provides social benefits to all.
