EY-Parthenon has announced the appointment of two supply chain specialists, Nick Partridge and Stuart Clarke, as associate partners based in London.
In his new role, Partridge will focus on value creation and performance improvement for consumer products clients. He brings 22 years of experience working with manufacturing businesses and their end-to-end supply chains, as well as professional consulting experience at AlixPartners and a big four practice.
Partridge also held supply chain management roles at Unilever and he most recently worked as an independent consultant on the sell-side of a multi-billion-euro global CPG carve out.
Meanwhile, Clarke is an experienced supply chain professional with operations and consulting experience in consumer goods and retail. He began his career with Unilever supply chain, before pursuing a career in consulting.
This includes periods at Accenture, Kearney, and as an independent consultant. Clarke has reportedly led transformative projects from strategy development through to implementation.
Partridge said: “I am excited to join EY-Parthenon at a time when the consumer products market is reshaping dramatically, presenting significant opportunities and risks to companies and their investors. I look forward to building our capability to support corporate and Private Equity clients realise sustainable value creation in this sector.”
Clarke added: “With companies facing significant complexities in driving supply chain performance, particularly during transactions, I’m looking forward to bringing the unparalleled breadth and depth of EY capabilities to work collaboratively with our clients to achieve success.”
Michel Driessen, senior partner at EY-Parthenon, said: “Supply chain resilience has never been more critical. Nick and Stuart bring a wealth of in-house and consultancy experience which build upon our existing capability in consumer products, supply chain and value creation. I am delighted to welcome them both.”
