Mississauga, ON

Attention all Supply Chain Management leaders! Argentus is working on a new senior leadership role for a great automotive client. This global company has a reputation for quality and supply chain excellence, with a strong, employee-focused working culture. Today, they’re hiring a Director of Supply Chain! This is an excellent growth opportunity for someone, perhaps a Senior Manager, looking to move into their first Director-level role.

The Role:

Working out of the company’s facility in Mississauga, ON, this Director of Supply Chain will take on overall leadership for a variety of key supply chain functions including purchasing, forecasting, inventory, transportation, and warehousing, as well as other supply chain activities for the company’s very large base of products (50,000+ SKUs). Leading a team of Supply Chain Managers, Planners and Analysts, the successful candidate for this role will be a hands-on Director who will manage people, processes and systems to deliver excellence across the company’s supply chain, from origin points with suppliers to customer delivery.

With a focus on Purchasing and Inventory, you will support the achievement of Procurement’s strategic alignment with the overall business’s profitability through improving the company’s inventory position. You will lead the inventory budget process, and guide the supply chain team to execute on purchasing to meet the overall inventory strategy. You will work closely with manufacturing and a variety of other impactful internal stakeholders to drive overall accountability for Fill Rate, Expected Time of Delivery, and Inventory Availability while improving efficiency and lowering costs. You will guide overall budgeting for the department and function, developing strategy to build an integrated supply chain function that breaks down silos, improves continuously with new technologies and processes, and delivers cost savings, efficiency and innovation from every aspect of supply chain.

The Ideal Candidate:

This is an excellent growth opportunity for an up-and-coming accomplished Supply Chain leader with at least 10+ years of experience in a Manufacturing environment within the Canadian marketplace, ready to move into their first Director role with a major growth opportunity. Experience sourcing and purchasing finished goods from overseas (particularly Asia — China and Japan) is a must, as is a strong background in Supply Chain systems including SAP, Oracle and JDE. Our client is also looking for someone with exceptional data skills including Excel, and skills with SQL are a strong asset. The successful candidate will likely come from a Finance background (possibly a CPA), with experience in an Automotive, Manufacturing, or Industrial environment. In short, this could be a career-making role for the right individual! If you’re looking to move into a new leadership role, and your experience matches this description, reach out to Argentus today!
