Director of Supply Chain
Brian, our Director of Supply Chain, began his working life in the defence industry utilising his degree in Applied Chemistry with Chemical Engineering, before forging a career in retail with Toys R Us and Makro. He joined Camborne Fabrics in 1998 on a temporary basis, and stayed because staff were approachable and passionate about what they did and had fun doing it, and the business was dynamic in terms of product design, innovation within manufacturing, and sales team commitment. Brian has spent much of his career working within Supply Chain, but has also being involved with Custom Made products, developing operating systems, supporting the initial development of the Lithuanian manufacturing facility, and running operations for the transport division.
“What I want to achieve for the Supply Chain is a professional, proactive department of highly skilled buyers who have technical as well as commercial knowledge, that work closely with our current and future suppliers to deliver the right product at the right quality, on time, developing long term partnerships which will enhance our capabilities.”
Brian lives with his wife Vanessa in the heart of the Pennines near Hebden Bridge in a house built in 1840 which Brian has spent the last few years restoring. In what little spare time he has left he enjoys skiing in winter, attending rock concerts, F1 and driving single seater race cars, and is an avid supporter of England Rugby League and Union teams.
