Alex Hirst

Prior to joining Hatmill I worked for both Morrisons and ASDA within their supply chain functions.

With this gaining in-depth knowledge of their supply chain and logistics  functions and in particular their forecast and replenishment system.

Since joining Hatmill,  I have worked on projects across supply chain and logistics working in both the private and public sector. And have also worked on a wide variety of projects including the design and implementation of an automated picking system, the selection and transition of a 3PL on a £35M transport contract.  A forecast and replenishment system implementation, and the fit out of new DC.

Key experience includes:

  • Led the installation of an automated storage and retrieval system for one of the UK fastest growing worktop retailers
  • Supported a leading global provider of kitchenware through their warehouse transition, providing operational and strategic support
  • Managed the implementation of a forecasting and replenishment system at the UK largest independent wholesaler
  • Acted as Automation lead during the tender process for an automated solution for one of the UK’s leading bakeries
  • Managed the fit out of a new DC for a leading UK carpet manufactures and distributor
  • Managed the transition of a VMU from one 3PL to another
