Gary Newbury


A consumer-packaged goods Executive within Manufacturing, 3PL, Wholesale, Retail or The Last Mile?

Finding your retail channels, strategy or supply chain operations being severely disrupted?

Intricately involved in the “Make, Move, Sell” flow within grocery, general merch or specialty products?

Seeking new ideas for supply chain strategy, to become more operationally agile or help to rapidly execute?

Looking to partner with a “Senior Exec On Call” with a strong track record of leading teams through disruption?

You’ve landed in the right place.

My Purpose

My key driver has been to serve my retail supply chain clients by creating strategy options and focused execution so they continue to honour their business and social purposes with distinction.

As a “Senior Executive on Call”, I guide clients through periods of seismic disruption, developing new retail supply chain capabilities and help execute strategies to scale, adapt and win in the digital age.

I have a passion for creating new retail supply chain visions and models, developing effective strategy options to achieve them, and driving flawless execution towards winning, quickly and painlessly.

The Approach

When it comes to transforming your supply chain network, time is money. Purposeful, rapid and directive action is imperative.

I learned early in my career there are five align-able elements which, when fully configured, integrated and aligned with vision, ignites a supply chain transformational change leading to accelerated business success:






Performing an end-to-end assessment of these elements drives generation of strategy options, engagement within stakeholders, development of a roadmap, motivation of resources and, ultimately, helping your business to lead the way. That’s when the magic truly begins…

 Working alongside your team, I’ll help you to rapidly reboot supply chain performance, leveraging my extensive change management expertise honed through multiple waves of disruption.
