Mktg letter - Jan 2016 Version B

  1. 1. FRANK SAWINSKY – Process Oriented, Analytical, Strategic Focus, Action-oriented, Implementation, Decision-Making Frank is passionate about using data to either effect transformational or incremental change throughout the supply chain in order to enhance all stakeholder positions. Looking for a senior leadership role within the supply chain discipline – ie . Sourcing, Distribution, Operations. Frank has worked in every aspect of the supply chain, starting his career in purchasing. Throughout the years he has worked in strategic sourcing, materials management, managed demand planning, production planning, managed manufacturing and multiple DC facilities. The breadth of the industries covered ranges from Consumer Goods, retail, plumbing, wholesale, manufacturing, food production and a highly regulated scientific lab environment. Some of the accomplishments include: Developed and implemented a logistics strategy that was instrumental in reducing costs 10% within our four (4) N. American DC model at Foremost and enhancing the focus on Health & Safety. At Epicure small parcel freight was reduced by ~ $1M. At Walmart e-Commerce I played a key role in obtaining the research data, obtaining the approvals and implementing solutions that saved WM ~5% ($13M) in freight in 2015. Adept at GAP analysis, building optimization models and using Monte Carlo simulation in demand analysis models. Used Monte Carlo successfully to handle NP launches at Epicure. At Tyco I was a joint recipient in an award received for developing a forecast model for a billion dollar business unit. Within an “each” pick e-Commerce environment using LEAN methodologies and automation technology my team was able to improve pick/pack efficiency by ~ 150% in a facility that handled ~ 3000 orders per day.
  2. 2. At Exova as Director of North American procurement, I built the team and effectively created the Corporate Procurement/Sourcing group. The team handled direct/indirect purchases for the North American organization - Software, IT, telephony, leases, office equipment, travel, and really added value through these engagements. Inside of two years my team had reduced the Cost of Goods by 4%, as verified by the CFO. At SnapOn, I used LEAN principles to completely rethink a manufacturing strategy. We were so successful that the concepts were adopted by HO in US. We were able to reduce lead-times from 8wks ->3wks. Inventory was reduced ~ 30 % and we also enjoyed a hard cost savings of $700K. Initiated the implementation of a Sales & Operations process to effectively manage our vitreous china line that was sold to a big Box retailer throughout North America. This process alone started to eliminate waste throughout the whole value-added chain for all the stakeholders. The process allowed the commodity to be run on one set of numbers - single source of truth - through the value chain. Customer service improved and inventory levels were dramatically reduced. Managed multi-site full scale effective ERP implementations - Oracle, JDE, Dynamics, and Navision. Also managed a warehouse management system implementation at Walmart within our 300,000 sqft Calgary ecomm DC. Frank received his BA in Economics from U of Toronto and his MBA from U of Edinburgh, Herriot Watt in 2002. In addition, he has also completed the Certified Professional Purchaser program through SCM, Professional Logistics designation, and two designations from APICS – CPIM and CIRM. He is currently competing is PMP designation. Frank strongly believes in continual learning and the benefits of staying fit. Outside of work Frank enjoys the outdoors and his other passion road cycling. On the weekends he can be found on either a club ride, an organized Gran Fondo, or riding the Velodrome. His other interests include playing acoustic guitar, reading an inspirational novel, hiking and seeking that elusive perfect photo. Frank is a Supply Chain professional, with a deep understanding of the value creation process, process reengineering, and project management. In addition he also brings wisdom, an ability to effectively communicate up /down an organization, and the leadership skills necessary to motivate and inspire an extended team. Sincerely, Frank Sawinsky MBA, CPP, P.Log, CPIM, CIRM
