SCALA, a leading provider of management services for the supply chain and logistics sector, has appointed a new senior consultant to bolster its ambitious expansion plans.
Paul Bebbington has over 27 years’ of experience in supply chain and logistics management and will play a key role in helping SCALA to expand its services and drive the business forward.
Previously the head of European Distribution for Kelloggs, Paul oversaw the company’s distribution strategy across the whole of Europe and was responsible for managing teams and programmes across various departments, including cost and service improvement, logistics sourcing, 3PL contract management and network optimisation. During his time with Kelloggs, he also worked within the change management department and led the supply chain integration for Kellogg’s acquisition of Pringles.
Most recently, Paul spent around two years working with Sanofi, a bio-pharma manufacturing company, where he was responsible for developing and implementing a change management program across a portfolio of initiatives, including an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) implementation, and lean and integrated business planning programmes.
Paul has an MBA from Manchester Business school, where he is also studying for a doctorate and is researching digital technologies and supply chain.
