Consulting firm Cosmapec Supply Chain Management has added two new partners to its team: Don Frey, based in Los Angeles and Santi Gutierrez, based in Manila.
Founded earlier this year by Rob Ward and Sue Reading, Cosmapec Supply Chain Management is an internationally oriented business advisory firm based in Poole, South West England. The consulting firm specialises in supply chain management, offering advisory and implementation services in the field of sourcing, supply chain, logistics and manufacturing. Cosmapec focuses mainly on the consumer packaged goods industry, in particular on the Cosmetic, Fragrance and Toiletries segments. Since its establishment, Cosmapec has grown its global network through the addition of several consulting experts, based in among others India, South Africa and Vietnam.
In line with its ambition to cover major markets, Cosmapec has further expanded its footprint with the addition of two new associate partners in the U.S. and The Philippines. Don Frey, based in Los Angeles, brings more than 30 years of experience in beauty and household product formulation research and development at executive level in blue-chip companies. He has lived and worked in multiple international locations, which gives him a “strong understanding of consumer needs and formulation requirements in a broad range of local conditions,” says co-founder Rob Ward.
Santi Gutierrez, based in Manila, is an experienced executive with extensive manufacturing, distribution and supply chain leadership skills.. “He brings a strong product development background, a wide range of business process transformation expertise and a highly successful track-record in project management,” adds Ward.
