Objectives and Key Deliverables
We have just acquired a manufacturing business in Denver and require a consultant to execute the operational and procurement side of our value creation plan.
We will need someone with both manufacturing operations improvement experience and procurement experience- gained within a management consulting firm. We already have the value creation plan developed so this is focused on execution including bringing in additional resources where necessary.
The consultant will have to be based on site in Denver for 4/5 days a week although we are willing to cover travel within the US.
