By trade Alison is a commercially astute and self-motivated supply chain and logistics professional with over 29 years’ experience in the industry. Having worked operationally at Director level for most of her career (in the UK, Canada and Europe) and with experience in contract hire, chilled and frozen food, media services, fashion retail, industrial and healthcare to name but a few – there isn’t much Alison doesn’t know about this industry!
Having provided 3rd party logistics services to customers and also procured 3rd party logistics services as a customer, she understands the unique requirements from both perspectives. As such, in 2019 Alison made an exciting career change by joining Bis Henderson Recruitment as an Associate Director. Her background has given her a thorough understanding of what is required of a supply chain senior executive so she’s well-placed to match candidates to the strategic objectives of her clients. As a highly experienced change leader she specialises in producing candidates that can transform operations into competitive assets.
Alison believes in customer/supplier collaboration and building true partnerships to create real added value opportunities – she truly enjoys building high performing teams and developing individuals to reach their potential.
Outside of work Alison is a keen photographer, so keen she is about to launch her own website. She’s also got a reputation for making a mean curry, but tries to play it down to minimise the requests of ‘curry for lunch’ from the rest of the Bis Henderson team! To balance out the curry, Alison loves to keep fit and recently completed her seventh marathon.
