New head of supply chain for Simon Jersey

April 19, 2017

We’ve further strengthened our senior team with the appointment of Oliver Cooper as head of supply chain.

Oliver is responsible for the end-to-end supply chain from the production of all our uniforms through to fulfilment from our warehouse. His role will also include working with all of Simon Jersey’s suppliers to ensure that our CSR code of standards around labour and the environment is upheld.

Within his first few weeks at Simon Jersey, Oliver has already completed a tour of some of our suppliers in the Far East.

Oliver previously worked in supply chain and finance roles at Pets at Home and he is also a qualified accountant. Most recently he was supply chain and merchandising director for The Hut Group.

He said: “It’s exciting to join a business like Simon Jersey that has an ambitious leadership team and a clear view on how it will grow over the next few years.

“The business has a very talented supply chain team in place and we’re already working together to deliver projects that will support growth.”

James Saunders, managing director at Simon Jersey, said: “Oliver has outstanding experience and it is fantastic to have him in the senior team. He is already working closely with our suppliers and delivering changes that will help us achieve our goals.”
