Mario Reis has joined the manufacturer from multinational beauty company Coty, where he served as chief global supply chain officer during a period of transformation in the business. He will serve as a member of the Pladis leadership team.
Commenting on Reis’ appointment, Pladis chief executive Salman Amin said: “His vast experience leading the end-to-end supply chain in large, global businesses means he will be a great asset to our team as we build on our excellence across our markets. We’re absolutely thrilled to have him on board.”
Thirty years’ experience
Reis boasts more than 30 years of experience in international supply chain, procurement and management roles and has held senior positions in a number of fast-moving consumer goods companies, including Danone and Mars.
He added: “I am delighted to be joining Pladis, as I have long admired the company for its portfolio of cherished brands, its strong position in global snacking and its presence across so many geographies, and I look forward to working with the team and its partners to continue to drive Pladis’ success.”
The appointment of Reis to the role of chief supply chain officer comes less than two months after the company hired David Murray as its new managing director for the UK and Ireland. Like Reis, Murray is part of the Pladis leadership team.
Meanwhile, last week, William Jackson Food Group (WJFG) – owner of the MyFresh, Wellocks and Jacksons Yorkshire’s Champion brands – has named James Watson as its new chief executive.
