Alex Stuart

I joined Hatmill in 2018 after having spent the majority of my career to date working for Europe’s largest discount food retailer. During that time, I have worked in Sales, Supply Chain and Warehousing & Logistics roles at both regional and national level.

Proven record of delivering both operational and consultancy roles

Since joining Hatmill, I have supported clients across a variety of sectors in multiple roles. Initial roles included leading and implementing process improvement initiatives through to a full warehouse transition for a multinational PLC in Eastern Europe. During the pandemic, I was very proud to have been an integral part of the team setting up both the new PPE and Vaccine supply chains for the DHSC and NHS during the Covid-19 crisis. More recently, I have supported clients in their business transformation journeys including new warehouse design modelling, programme management for supply chain optimisation and in-depth analysis of logistics planning structures.

Before joining Hatmill I fulfilled many roles in the FMCG sector, including implementing 15% opex reduction through improved transport planning, headcount planning, absence & fluctuation reduction and lean process improvements; managing multiple key internal stakeholders in the development of three new regional distribution centres through their design, build and fit-out phases; responsible for full operational continuation through a 12 month DC expansion and reconfiguration programme; being site general manager for a multi temperature food distribution warehouse with over 300 personnel.

My experience has led me to successfully deliver projects focussed around process improvement and implementation, KPI management, strategy planning, cost reduction and labour and resource planning.

By improving their demand forecast, we helped one client save £3m in agency staffing costs (that’s an 18% reduction).
