TBM Consulting Group has appointed John Wynne as Managing Director of TBM Europe. In his role, Wynne will leverage his more than 20 years of operational experience to lead all aspects of the firm’s European team, based in London.

Founded in 1991, TBM Consulting Group is a management consulting firm, which specialises in operations and supply chain consulting for clients in the manufacturing and distribution sectors. Over the 27 years the firm has been in business, the firm says it has built up a track record of thousands of successful case studies, with demonstrated results in performance improvement and accelerated value creation.

The US-origin firm first branched into Europe in 1994, opening an office in Nottingham, in the UK. Since then, TBM has worked with companies across 30 different countries throughout EMEA. Now, in the continued unpredictability of Brexit, the firm has sought to strengthen its ties with the continent by hiring a new Managing Director to head up TBM Europe.

John Wynne, arrives at the firm to lead TBM’s European Consulting Business, boasting a 20 year career in operations, including a seven year period living and working in Germany, where he managed pan-European teams and worked as part of a global team. Prior to his new role at TBM, Wynne worked at Parker Hannifin, where over the course of a thirteen year stint, he latterly became Division Supply Chain Manager for Parker's Pneumatic Division, with P&L responsibility for locations across six countries.

He was previously Group Lean Manager for Parker's $1 billion European Fluid Connector Group where he led change across 26 locations in nine countries across the globe.  Before his tenure with Parker Hannifin, Wynne held leadership roles with Colfax Corporation and Avery Dennison. It was during this time, that he worked in Germany, in progressive leadership positions, becoming proficient in German in the process.

This skill in particular may be key for TBM Europe, as the firm looks to navigate Brexit, and as multiple businesses reportedly weigh up Germany as a mainland alternative to the EU’s present financial capital of London. Recently, a report suggested as many as 14,000 automotive jobs alone could relocate to Germany, with major implications for TBM’s clients in the manufacturing and distribution spaces.

Commenting on the hiring of Wynne, Gary Hoover, TBM Vice President, said, "As we continue to build TBM's global capability and capacity, John brings a powerful set of skills having led many successful business transformations. Few truly know how to create and sustain breakthrough performance from end-to-end. Even fewer can lead this change from an executive level down to the point of impact. John has done both. We are fortunate to have John join TBM at this moment and know he will bring tremendous value to our clients."
