I started Macartney Forbes Limited with my wife Carey in 2009, to enable me to work as an interim Supply Chain Director. My corporate career before this included senior roles in Heineken, TDG, The Boots Company, Medtronic and Johnson & Johnson. My speciality is to rescue and recover supply chains from ‘man-made’ disasters, usually those resulting from poor IT implementation, poor investment decisions, short term re-organisations and the like. I am also adept at procurement and contract negotiations, delivering operational improvement in service, stock and cost to serve and as a functional leader, able to fill a senior post to help lead an organisation through a crisis.
I would describe myself as Scottish, British, open-minded and constantly curious about how people and technology function. I am a rugby fan and member of Canterbury RFC.
