Rachael’s career spans 30 years in manufacturing, engineering, supply chain, procurement, business change and transformation disciplines.

From post merger integration to developing and scaling supply-chains, business turn-around, carve-out and divestment, Rachael’s experience has amassed to date across sixteen FTSE 100/250, small cap, not-for-profit and privately owned organisations, within a similar number of industries, including aerospace and defence, automotive, chemical, food and beverage, FMCG/CPG, industrial, professional services, renewable energy, and retail.
