Thrive Event: Leading people through huge transformational change

February 13th our first Thrive Leadership event of 2020. We are looking forward to breakfast with Paul Whyte Managing Director of Best Food Logistics who are the UK’s leading provider of end to end supply chain solutions and logistics for the UK Hospitality sector.

In 2017 Paul was recruited by Russam and appointed to run a turnaround of the UK’s largest Shared User Contract Logistics company with customers that include Burger King, Nando’s and KFC, and with total sales in excess of £1bn per annum. Over the past two years Paul has led an inspired a team that have transformed what was a heavily loss-making business known as Bidvest Logistics, into an instantly recognisable, service led, innovative and profitable brand that is now known as Best Food Logistics. Operating in a poor service industry, Best Food Logistics has successfully leveraged technology and Big Data to step change and continually demonstrate it’s now exceptional service levels and the value it provides to its customers. Paul will talk us through this journey and how he has successfully led the team through times of great adversity in order to reposition Best Food Logistics as a profitable market leader.  Paul will also bring to life his varied and extensive experience of leading transformational change in a Global PLC as well as his experience of running turnarounds on behalf of Parent Companies and Private Equity funds.

Please do join us for a morning of insightful discussion about the trials and tribulations of succesfully leading large groups of people through transformational change.
