30 July 2019
Scala has appointed Nigel Smith to executive director.
In his most recent positions as group supply chain director for Tayto and chief integration officer at Montagu Group, Nigel was responsible for all logistics, supply chain, distribution, and S&OP processes, along with customer management for the Tayto Group and purchasing and company integration in Montagu Group.
Throughout his career, Nigel has awarded and managed multi-million-pound logistics contracts, overseen the implementation of state-of-the art automation and robotics systems, and successfully delivered a range of complex projects enabling long-term sustainable future business growth. He also regularly conducts independent whole business, operations, supply chain and functional reviews for organisations seeking to improve and grow.
Nigel said: “Having dedicated my career to helping businesses achieve long-term, tangible benefits, whether through supply chain innovation, improved manufacturing or even major restructuring, the move to Scala seemed like the perfect fit. The company strives to be at the forefront of industry best practice, and consistently enables its clients to meet the complex and evolving challenges of today’s business landscape.”
