Supply Chain Officers and Procurement or Operations Officers potentiate a business. At Loftus Bradford we know the importance of finding the right strategic leader for our clients; those who will create value and a competitive advantage. Our network of high-profile leaders are experienced in the processes of corporate purchasing, are adept at anticipating the needs of tomorrow and in creating a supply chain network resilient to change.

A supply and procurement manager understands how to identify business needs to strengthen supply chains; managing, sourcing, contracting and procuring from appropriate suppliers, in addition to innovating chain processes to maximize productivity. The effective management of supply chains ensures optimal resource allocation and minimal risk exposure.

Today’s fast-paced and technology-ruled world has risen the standards for talent who understand the systemic processes of supply and demand.
