Ready Pac moves Scott McGuire into chief supply chain officer role
Ready Pac Foods has promoted Scott McGuire to chief supply chain officer (CSCO), responsible for overseeing agricultural operations, transportation, demand planning, scheduling and customer service.
This move comes shortly after the company appointed its previous CSCO, Peter Laport, as its chief operating officer.
“With the continued rapid growth we are expecting, it is one of our priorities to ensure that all systems and processes are running as smoothly and capably as possible to provide the highest-quality products and best customer service possible,” said Ready Pac CEO Tony Sarsam.
McGuire joined ready Pac Foods in 2015 as vice president of sales and operations planning with nearly 30 years of logistics and supply chain management experience.
He was responsible for building the company’s sales and operations planning process, long-term business development strategy, demand forecasting, inventory & expenses management, customer service and transportation and logistics capabilities. Prior to Ready Pac Foods, McGuire ran his own consulting practice, Joseph Logistics and Supply Chain Solutions, where he provided consulting services for various consumer packaged goods clients, including Nestlé USA. Prior, he served as Nestlé USA’s national director of transportation and logistics for the company’s direct-store delivery division. He also served as service and distribution director for Pepsico’s Frito-Lay division.
