How Arriva manages supply chain finance

David Loseby, Arriva’s director of procurement for Mainland Europe, will provide an exclusive look at how the company approaches supply chain finance on 3rd December when he speaks at the Supply Chain Finance Summit.

Supply chain finance requires input from numerous sources, but often falls between the gaps of departmental responsibility. Loseby will be part of a panel looking at who is best placed to take ownership; how to identify and get on-board key stakeholders; and what are the core skills required to implement and run a SCF scheme. There will also be examples of best practice and how organisations can implement change.

As procurement director at Arriva, David Loseby has been developing and implementing a new strategy and organisation to deliver benefits across all geographies, develop a new supply chain and suite of contracts to support a turnover of £5 billion plus.

Previously a non-executive director for Westminster Business Council, championing the EU funded mentoring scheme for small businesses. Formerly as the chief procurement officer & head of supplier relationship management  at Westminster City Council, he designed a new target operating model and reduced the headcount by 30%, annualised saving of £1.25m+.

He has also held senior procurement roles at Associated British Foods, and Carphone Warehouse. Before that he was change director at Barclays Bank.

The Supply Chain Finance Summit is organised by Supply Chain Standard and takes place at the Radisson Blu Portman Hotel in London.

Survey results from Demica show that Supply Chain Finance is growing at a rate of up to 40 per cent a year and will continue to expand with rates of up to 10 per cent by 2020.

Designed exclusively for CFOs, CSCOs, and senior risk managers, the Supply Chain Finance Summit is designed to help delegates get up to speed with current and future legislation; learn from peers who have already set up schemes; and find out how to use SCF to gain competitive advantage.
