SCALA on right path as se­nior con­sul­tant ap­pointed

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS -

YORK­SHIRE-BASED SCALA, a provider of man­age­ment ser­vices for the sup­ply chain and lo­gis­tics sec­tor, is on track to reach its growth tar­gets fol­low­ing the ap­point­ment of a new se­nior con­sul­tant.

Rob Wright has more than 35 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in sup­ply chain and lo­gis­tics man­age­ment, hav­ing spent 29 years mov­ing up the ranks at Pladis Global, which was for­merly United Bis­cuits.

A spokesman said: “Be­fore tak­ing up his new po­si­tion, Mr Wright had al­ready been working closely with SCALA to de­velop its sup­ply chain and lo­gis­tics best prac­tice fo­rums and its bench­mark­ing ser­vice.

“He has also been ac­tively working with other fo­rums and trade as­so­ci­a­tions, such as the IGD and the Food and Drink Fed­er­a­tion (FDF), to pro­duce best prac­tice guides on op­ti­mis­ing lo­gis­tics and en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity.

“He will play a key role in help­ing SCALA to ex­pand its ser­vices and drive the busi­ness for­ward, par­tic­u­larly fo­cus­ing on its trans­port and dis­tri­bu­tion con­sul­ta­tion of­fer­ing within the gro­cery sec­tor.”

Mr Wright said: “Given that I have been en­gag­ing with SCALA on var­i­ous projects for some time, it seemed the perfect step to join the team to help de­velop and broaden the busi­ness by shar­ing my knowl­edge and ex­per­tise.

“Over the many years I’ve op­er­ated within the lo­gis­tics sec­tor, I’ve been in­volved in some fan­tas­tic projects, and played a ma­jor role in help­ing my team to win 16 in­dus­try best prac­tice awards over the last 10 years.

“I’m aim­ing to bring this win­ning suc­cess to SCALA so we can show­case just what the com­pany has to of­fer and how it de­liv­ers the very best in sup­ply chain and lo­gis­tics ser­vices.”

John Perry, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Hud­der­s­field-based SCALA, said: “Rob has built one of the very best lo­gis­tics op­er­a­tions in the gro­cery in­dus­try. His depth of knowl­edge and un­der­stand­ing of the in­dus­try will be of real ben­e­fit to many of our clients. 2018 is look­ing to be an in­cred­i­bly ex­cit­ing year for us and we’re thrilled to have Rob on board.”
