LCP Consulting, the specialist in customer-driven supply chain and business operations consultancy – has appointed Richard Walters as Partner in the firm's Manufacturing practice.
LCP clients include global foodservice manufacturers, the UK's largest retailer, and 6 of the top 10 UK retailers. With LCP's manufacturing practice rapidly expanding alongside its retail practice, the consultancy has continued to build on its capabilities and experience at both ends of the supply chain – providing clients with a market leading end-to-end solution.
Walters will work with the LCP manufacturing team to deliver services for FMCG and foodservice clients such as manufacturing platform optimisation, operations improvement, and implementation of global planning solutions (S&OP/CRM).
After completing an MBA at Leeds University, Walters joined Bidwells Agribusiness, specialising in strategic supply chain projects for the UK's retail and foodservice sectors. More recently, he established the Stonesthrow Food Co., an e-commerce based home delivery business delivering fresh and local food.
John Lockton, Managing Director, LCP Consulting said: "Richard's appointment illustrates the continued expansion of our dedicated practice, which now advises many of the world's leading manufacturers.
Richard's extensive foodservice and retail experience will complement our market leading end-to-end supply chain offer. His in-depth knowledge of e-commerce customer experiences and how they link to supply management systems and processes, will be an invaluable asset for our clients."
