Supply chain consultancy Chainalytics has added Stan La Haye to its team. La Haye, who joins as a Senior Manager from CLX Logistics Europe, has been tasked with further growing the firm’s footprint in the transport consulting segment.
Stan La Haye has around 10 years’ experience in the consulting industry. After obtaining a Master’s degree in Logistics Management from the Rotterdam Business School, he started his career in the summer of 2007 at KPMG, based within the firm’s Advisory business line. La Haye spent four years with the Big Four firm, working on multiple supply chain transformation projects focusing on process improvement, cost reduction, and procurement optimisation. In 2011 he transferred to LHC Consulting, a Netherlands-based supply chain advisory boutique, and, after LHC Consulting was acquired by CLX Logistics in October 2012, La Haye moved along to CLX’s European consulting arm: CLX Logistics Europe.
Over the past five years, La Haye, most recently in the role of Senior Consultant, managed and executed a wide range of supply chain projects for CLX’s clients. Project experience gained include managing a procurement project for a major transport player, involved from initial baseline setting to carrier negotiations and final contracting; delivering benchmarking services to a freight provider, providing analyses across transport nodes; and contributing to a logistics cost reduction programme, reducing logistics spend across nodes to customers, external warehouses, and intercompany shipments.
La Haye also gained experience with sourcing process improvement transitions, business case development, post-merger integration in the logistics realm and the implementation of global/pan-European technology roll-outs.
Last month the seasoned consultant decided to embark on a new adventure, and joined Chainalytics, with 200+ consultants across nine locations globally one of the globe’s larger specialised supply chain management consultancies. In his new role at the US-origin privately-held firm, La Haye will focus on further building the Freight Market Intelligence Consortium, Chainalytics' platform which provides strategic freight market intelligence, benchmarking, and comparative analysis to its members. He also has been charged with directing the firm’s European transport consulting practice, specifically focusing on engagements that span logistics processes, systems optimisation, transport procurement and mode analysis.
Commenting on his new challenge, La Haye, who is based in Amsterdam, says he is delighted with the move, stating “With my background and expertise, we should be able to help our clients capture even more value from their supply chain by optimising transport procurement, logistics processes, IT systems and modes.” Reflecting on his decision to join Chainalytics, he adds, “Chainalytics has built a strong FMIC practice in Europe over the last years, providing fact based analytics for a better understanding of the client’s and market transport dynamics, which is the basis for transport optimisation.”
