UK-based supply chain consultancy LCP Consulting has hired logistics expert Gareth Jenkins, who joins from a more than ten year career at Logistics Consulting Asia. In his new role, Jenkins takes on the role of Principal in the firm’s Retail and FMCG practices.
For the last decade Jenkins has lived and worked in Asia Pacific, where he worked for Logistics Consulting Asia, with four offices in Asia’s one of the region’s larger specialised supply chain consultancies. At the firm, founded in 1999 and headquartered in Malaysia, Jenkins advised clients on supply chain strategies and was a consultant to dozens of logistical transformations. His focus lies on engagements in the retail, oil & gas, chemicals and FMCG industries, with Exxon, Wal-Mart, Marks & Spencer and Tesco some of the clients he has served.
Roughly ten years after leaving the UK, where Jenkins spent ten years with LCP Consulting – the Berkhamsted-based consultancy has a strategic partnership with Logistics Consulting Asia – Jenkins has returned to the country and affiliated with his former employer. LCP Consulting has appointed Jenkins as Principal in the firm’s Retail and FMCG practices, in the role he will work with LCP’s retail and manufacturing teams to develop end-to-end supply chain strategies and physical distribution network strategies.
Commenting on the senior hire, John Lockton, Managing Director of LCP Consulting, says “Gareth’s extensive supply chain experience in both retail and consumer goods will complement our end-to-end solution in both of these high growth sectors.” He further adds that LCP Consulting is increasingly being called on by the firm’s clients to operate internationally, “so Gareth’s knowledge of Asia Pacific could be an invaluable asset to both LCP, and our clients.”
Jenkins holds a Bachelor of Arts in Politics, Philosophy & Economics from the University of Oxford and Master’s degree in Logistics from the Cranfield University - Cranfield School of Management.
