Dave Howorth (pictured) is joining the SCALA Consulting team as an Executive Director. Dave Howarth was previously Supply Chain Director for General Mills UK, Ireland, Germany and Nordics, one of the top ten food manufacturers in the world, and was responsible for overseeing Logistics and Supply Chain Development in a multi-national, multi-temperature and multi-channel environment.  His work has included distribution network design, supply chain reengineering to reflect acquisition and divestiture, the implementation of an Integrated Business Management/S&OP process and the development of a customer engagement strategy. For a number of years previously Dave held the position of European Logistics Director within General Mills and was a member of the ECRUK Board.

“In joining SCALA my aim is to drive accelerated growth by bringing strategic insights and expertise to our clients that will provide deliverable value to them. Supply Chain is at an incredibly interesting point in time where it is not only a significant differentiator to business performance but it can also be a make or break to future success. I am really excited to be part of the SCALA team that will be guiding our current and future clients to Supply Chain and business success,” said Dave Howorth.

John Perry, SCALA Consulting’s Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to have Dave join our Team.  His experience in Europe and working as a senior director in an organisation as diverse as General Mills will be a great addition to SCALA’s capabilities.  In addition Dave’s wide experience with the ECR Board will enhance SCALA’s capabilities to really develop supply chain collaboration relationships between suppliers to retailers.  This is a difficult area but one with real opportunity for driving ‘end-to end’ supply chain improvements that involves companies working together rather than separately.  Dave will be heading up SCALA’s Grocery and FMCG Best Practice Forums including Supply Chain and Logistics Benchmarking to provide tangible benefits as well as offer our clients the latest in industry developments.

“I believe we have the top people in our Executive Board who complement my background in Logistics and Commercial Management consulting experience, Dave Howorth joins Keith Newton and Phil Reuben on the Executive Board. Keith has a strong emphasis on Supply Chain Customer Services as well as being the International Secretary General for CILT; and Phil, specialises in Sourcing and Procurement with years of experience in industry and working in the Far East.”

“Since SCALA was founded in 2001, we have achieved an excellent industry reputation for providing high quality Supply Chain and Logistics expertise. We are now not only expanding our offering to include Procurement but we are also expanding our sphere of influence, launching major projects across China, introducing a Supply Chain Best Practice Forum for major non-food retailers and enhancing our team at Executive Board and Senior Consultant levels.”
