(Boston, Mass - March, 2019) – Global supply chain and operations consulting firm Maine Pointe continues to advance towards its goal of becoming the most sought-after global supply chain and operations consultancy with the appointment of veteran, Rex Clothier, as an Industry Partner in the Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) sector, which includes Food & Beverage.

 

Clothier has been part of the Maine Pointe team since 2012, most recently as the Strategic Procurement Practice Leader. His in-depth knowledge and industry expertise in global supply chain value streams has consistently provided meaningful value to clients. His experience in international and domestic procurement and end-to-end supply chain includes advising companies ranging from smaller entrepreneurial firms to large, global, publicly-traded companies.

“Rex’s in-depth industry expertise has consistently delivered measurable value to Maine Pointe clients,” said Steven Bowen, Chairman & CEO of Maine Pointe. “CPG companies are going beyond traditional cost saving strategies and need to focus on the entire end-to-end supply chain to drive value creation. Rex brings years of experience helping executives achieve the TVO triple effect of driving out costs, releasing cash and enabling growth. Additionally, Rex has been involved in looking deeper into consumer trends, through prescriptive analytics, to drive Total Value Optimization (TVO)™.”

Prior to Maine Pointe, Clothier held senior business development roles in several consulting firms in the CPG sector and was President of Orion Seafood International where he pioneered a new shrimp and king crab supply chain that grew the product line to $30 million in the first year. As Senior Vice President at US Food Service, he facilitated a $100 million resource-to-recipe supply chain network, which created $15 million in savings. While holding procurement leadership roles at Darden Restaurants, his hedging strategies for dairy and beef resulted in year-over-year savings in excess of $50 million.

“Understanding the entire supply chain down to the customer level, and collaborating on an end-to-end basis, is key to success in the CPG industry,” said Clothier. “Maine Pointe’s Total Value Optimization (TVO) ™ methodology drives growth and has consistently delivered improvement in EBITDA and cash release for our clients.”

In his new role as Industry Partner, Clothier will be presenting at the Institute for Supply Management’s (ISM) Annual Conference in Houston on April 8 on the topic, “Optimizing the supply chain to drive EBITDA, cash and growth performance.” Clothier will discuss how end-to-end supply chain optimization drives the triple effect of reducing cost, releasing cash and enabling growth. During the session, he will incorporate real-world case studies and best practices to illustrate this competitive advantage. On March 17-19, Clothier will be in Boston to attend North America’s largest seafood industry conference, The 2019 Seafood Expo North America, where he will meet with senior leaders in the industry.
