Q: How long have you been part of the e2open team?

A: Since January 2, 2019. So 1,570 days…but not counting. 

Q: Where are you based (city, country)?

A: Portishead, UK.

Q: What was your first job? 

A: Telesales/Telemarketing operator while at the University in the mid-90s. At £3.15/hr, far more valuable in terms of experience than short-term financial gain…

Q:  What piece of career advice would you give to a recent graduate who is entering the workforce? 

Never slam the door on your way out, and never look down on people on your way up. It’s a small world. 

Q:  What is your greatest personal accomplishment during your time with the company? 

A: Leading the divestiture negotiations around BluJay in Italy. 

Q: What three words would you use to describe e2open? 

A: Welcoming. Challenging. Rewarding.

Q: What is one meal you cannot live without?

Cereals. I love Nonna’s tortelli di zucca… but I cannot live without breakfast. 

Q: What’s playing through your headphones this week (song, musician, podcast)?

Bruce Springsteen. Or should I change my answer after 35 years? 

Q: What three words would you use to describe the neighborhood where you live?

Suburban running track. 

Q: When you are traveling, what are the five most important things in your carry-on luggage?

Anti-epilepsy meds; noise-canceling headphones; Kindle; running shoes (should my checked-in luggage, not land where I do); a spare set of anti-epilepsy meds. 

Q: If someone were visiting your city for the first time, what would be something you’d tell them NOT to miss?

Portishead’s a town. I’d say the road out… then follow the signs for Clifton Suspension Bridge in nearby Bristol and take a walk across. If you pass the 14th-century pub en route… your call. 

Q: How would you describe the perfect Saturday?

Run in the morning. Three points for Sheffield United in the afternoon. Takeaway + movie with the family in the evening.

Embracing Resilience: Transforming Supply Chains for a New Era of Global Commerce

Supply chains evolved and were impacted positively and negatively by global events along the way.
