Richard has worked for major Global Consumer Goods companies for over 15 years such as Gillette (now P&G) and leading software providers. He recognized that Consumer Goods companies were struggling to develop their S&OP/IBP capability. Existing solutions did not easily support integration of Supply Chain Planning with Commercial & Financial Planning at Exceedra. Richard assembled a team of industry consultants and software developers to bring to market the next generation of Integrated Business Planning Solution for the Consumer Goods sector.
