After 5’s with Vaughan Grant – Designing supply chain networks

The Centre for Supply Chain Management (CSCM, within the Business School at the University of Auckland) invites you to hear from Vaughan Grant, Chief Operating Officer – T&G Fresh, at our next After 5’s event on Monday 8 March.

Vaughan will present a methodology for designing supply chain networks based on his experience with a variety of companies in Australasia. His approach addresses the needs many organisations have, to simultaneously increase availability and decrease working capital, and to optimise capacity and improve network resilience, and supply chain visibility, transparency, and traceability.


Prior to his appointment as COO of T&G Fresh, Vaughan held senior executive roles (CEO and COO) in firms including Halls Group, Foodstuffs North Island, Fletcher Building, and Woolworths. He is a Chartered Accountant, and has a BMS degree from the University of Waikato.
