Former Kathmandu Chief Supply Chain Officer Caleb Nicolson joins TM Insight in New Zealand

“Organisations are grappling with the rapid growth in ecommerce, which is challenging many supply chains from a service, capacity and cost level. Many organisations will need to assess their supply chain strategies, redefining and building the required capabilities to exceed customer expectations. I look forward to combining my extensive supply chain, retail, change management and business leadership with TM Insight’s market leading integrated capability in supply chain and property to help customers navigate and deliver success,” says Nicolson.

His understanding of global best practice supply chain solutions and extensive local market knowledge will ensure organisations can capitalise on the rapid adoption of ecommerce,” he adds.
