Christopher Quigg

Summary

A visionary operations and supply chain leader - an influencer of change with a keen eye for blazing a trail from vision to reality - connecting at all levels across the enterprise to strategize, develop, refine and apply a supply chain model that delivers the highest value while containing costs and yet instilling a driven, motivated customer-centric focus at every level. I champion, unify and inspire a contagious element of excitement enterprise-wide through "management by walking around" and "leadership by example" and foster a climate for reaping the values of tenure by maximizing on proprietary intellectual capital and of initiative by the empowerment of decision making to the action-taker.
