I have  25 years of experience in supply chain across procurement, planning and distribution in pharmaceuticals, automotive and food industry between Spain and UK.

Prior to joining Hatmill I worked managing the printing category for NHS Test & Trace Covid-19 programme. Since joining Hatmill I’m working with the Covid-19 vaccine distribution side.

My area of expertise is in procurement and planning helping companies optimize their inventories, improve fulfilment ratios, manage supply chain end to end including imports and exports across EU, Asia and USA.

Among other projects I’ve worked for FMCG, manufacturers and wholesalers with these as most recent highlights:

  • Managed procurement for the printing category at NHS Test and Trace to assemble and distribute PCR tests fighting against COVID-19 managing stock levels at 11 warehouses
  • Managed inbounds, stock levels and distribution of food products from EU countries into biggest UK retailer successfully avoiding wastage, increasing sales and keeping transport costs under budget.
  • Managed end to end process for generic pharmacological products from India manufacturers into UK and distributing to EU countries while giving support to UK repacking company.
  • Established supply chain processes from sourcing, procuring and distributing  for an antenna designer for a category of products helping launch new devices worldwide.
  • Managed supply planning for a JIT automotive parking brakes TIER1 supplier.

By improving their demand forecast, we helped one client save £3m in agency staffing costs (that’s an 18% reduction).
