As the Director of Supply Chain Operations excellence and Continuous Improvement for Grainger's Canadian and UK operations, I focus on developing, standardizing, executing, and sustaining distribution operations best practices and processes. Implementing and ensuring discipline around leader and team member standard work; teaching and institutionalizing continuous improvement methods; and developing appropriate predictive and trailing reporting to identify opportunities and durability of results are some of the current emphasis areas of my team.

Prior to my current role, I've supported Grainger's US and Canadian distribution center network storage and throughput efforts as well as held multiple operational roles within our distribution centers.
