North America expands executive leadership team in response to growth

USA, 18 February 2021

North America expands executive leadership team in response to growth

Miebach Consulting is pleased to announce that Bill Kincaid, who previously worked for LLamasoft as Vice President for Customer Success, has joined the company to lead the continued growth of the Supply Chain Transformation Business Unit. Nick Banich, who formerly lead this position, will be taking the new role of Chief Revenue Officer for the operations in the United States and Canada effective immediately.

“This change is an exciting moment for both the North American and Miebach global organization,” said Bernard Tremblay, Chief Executive Officer for Miebach Consulting North America.  “I am delighted to have Bill coming in to take charge of the Supply Chain Transformation business unit. He is a highly respected professional in the Supply Chain Design space who was paramount on delivering success for LLamasoft’s most complex customers and projects. His impressive career over the past 3 decades includes a diverse mix of leadership roles in industry, in consulting, and in technology that will ensure our work continues to provide our clients with well-founded solutions.”

“Nick has done a great job expanding Miebach’s capability in the Transformation space and I am looking forward to him being able to focus on our client’s success and expanding our services across the entire organization,” Bernard continued.

As the head of the Supply Chain Transformation business unit, Bill will be responsible for the project delivery and professional development associated with Miebach’s most strategic services. He will continue to drive forward Miebach’s leading position in the supply chain design and planning space, while working to continue to evolve Miebach’s services to embrace the digital decision-making age. This includes a growing managed services practice that is embracing the rise of BPaaS (Business Process as a Service).

“I am excited to be joining Miebach’s Supply Chain Transformation team and supporting the growth and innovation to deepen the practice,” Bill remarked. “My goal is to leverage the dynamic team that Nick has led, bring in my diverse experience, and deliver what our customers need. The expanded service offering we are planning will position our practice to be the holistic advisor for Supply Chain Transformation.”

Bill Kincaid has built his 35 year career focused within Supply Chain, of which the past 9 were at Miebach’s alliance partner, LLamasoft. Prior to this, Bill worked at a 3rd party logistics company, MIQ Logistics as their Director of Solutions and Business Development. This was preceded by launching CBREs internal supply chain consulting group as the VP and Managing Director of the practice. Prior to CBRE, he was a Director of Distribution for Scholastic Inc., Senior Manager of Logistics Engineering at Ryder, and a Senior Manager of Logistics at AJM Packaging. Before these roles, Bill was a manager at E&Y in their supply chain practice and held a variety of roles for over a decade at UPS.

Nick Banich Promoted to Chief Revenue Officer for North America

As Chief Revenue Officer, Nick will oversee all aspects of customer success, alliances, sales, and marketing within the United States and Canada. A critical piece of his focus will be on working alongside customers to fully understand how Miebach’s diverse and growing portfolio of services can align with the challenges facing supply chain leaders. A key factor to this growth is the increasing portfolio of alliances to the Miebach Group, and Nick will be driving those relationships forward to maximize the value they bring to customers.

A committed executive with a passion for innovation, Nick has been a paramount driver of Miebach’s growth in North America for the past decade. Under his leadership, the Supply Chain Transformation group has developed its industry recognized expertise in production footprinting, distribution network design, and supply chain planning. His impact was not only felt within North America, but his work on key global customers has led to growth across Miebach’s 25 offices around the world.

Alliances are an important part of the Miebach portfolio to offer the full reach and depth that complex initiatives require. Nick was the one who cemented the start of the LLamasoft relationship in North America in 2013, worked to scale is globally since then, and will continue to grow the relationship with Coupa. Additionally, he has quickly leveraged the new JLL strategic alliance to drive additional value to legacy Miebach and JLL clients on joint pursuits.

“It has been an honor and a privilege to lead the talent dense group of individuals that are a part of the Supply Chain Transformation delivery team,” Nick reflected before going on. “This new role represents an exciting opportunity not just for me, but our organization, and most importantly our clients. Given the ever-increasing rate businesses’ need to evolve, the rising use cases for digitalization, and the increasing complexity of transformational programs - it has become imperative that we can provide the full range of Miebach services and geographic reach to each of our clients. Thus, I look forward to working with our client’s and deepening the relationship as all of us in the industry being readying for the post-pandemic world.

Alliance mutually strengthens supply chain offering and end-to-end real estate solutions for clients

German-based international supply chain consulting and material flow engineering firm Miebach Consulting and global real estate professional services firm JLL announce that they have entered into a strategic business alliance. The alliance will integrate both firms' real estate, technology, sustainability supply chain and material flow expertise to deliver end-to-end strategy and execution services for clients in the logistics and production sector.

JLL and Miebach will deliver a holistic supply chain solution including the real estate financial element, offering customers and the market a joint value proposition helping them face the supply chain operational and financial challenges that have been exacerbated by Covid-19 pandemic. The alliance will also leverage technology to enable a data-driven decision-making process to pinpoint the right locations within the network and drive more flexible, efficient and customer-oriented supply chains. Companies will benefit from deeper insights of how factors such as automation, digitalization, building specification and global network optimization will shape the warehouse of the future.

The alliance comes at a time of heightened demand for supply chain services by businesses across the globe. Despite the reopening of many physical stores, the continued boom of e-commerce is putting supply chain management in the spotlight and accelerating the demand for logistics space globally.

Guy Gueirard, Head of JLL Supply Chain & Logistics Services, EMEA, added: "The link between supply chains and real estate is now more important than ever. The adoption of e-commerce accelerated by the disruption of brick-and-mortar retail at the height of the pandemic has strained global supply-chain networks. It has also highlighted the criticality of logistics and resilient supply chains for key sectors around the world.

This alliance is an important step forward in reinforcing our supply chain growth strategy, which will enable to offer clients more responsive, technology driven, flexible and sustainable solutions. Clients will benefit from the unique combination of Miebach's supply chain consulting and engineering experience and our established real estate expertise. We look forward to working together with Miebach as we develop and service a mutual client base in the future."

Jürgen Hess, CEO of Miebach Consulting, commented: "As omni-channel retail, e-commerce, automation and other drivers become stronger features in a fundamentally changing supply, production, distribution, and storage landscape, the ability to design and implement effective and dynamic supply chain networks that include adaptable real estate and facilities within flexible occupational portfolios, and which explore a range of financial options, will be an imperative for our clients.

The business alliance is centered around offering clients single source, end-to-end advice to enable them to accelerate business growth. Our clients operating internationally will benefit from an alliance that combines international scope with local knowledge."

Spain, 21 January 2021

MANGO receives CEL 2020 award in the company category

On January the 13th, the winners of the CEL Awards for Logistics Excellence were announced and MANGO was awarded for developing a global supply chain in the fashion industry. MANGO has counted on the collaboration of Miebach Consulting for this development, specifically in the automation project of its logistics platform in Lliçà d'Amunt from the beginning and throughout the different phases of the project.

The prizes awarded by the Centro Español de Logística for the last 30 years recognize the greatest achievements of companies in the supply chain in Spain, regardless of the sector in which they operate, and constitute the highest recognition in the logistics field in our country. This year, exceptionally, the awards ceremony was held in a virtual format, bringing together the professionals of the Supply Chain around the most relevant and innovative projects related to logistics and the supply chain.

José Estrada, the Managing Director of CEL, was responsible for announcing that the CEL Award in the Company category went to MANGO. For his part, Antonio Pascual, Supply Chain Director of the fashion company, praised the vision, initiative and effort of the large number of professionals who form part of the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit that characterizes and forms part of Mango's DNA, stressing that this project has enabled the company to transform its logistics, improve its service to customers and move towards a more sustainable management model.

Summary of Miebach Consulting's services for MANGO

MANGO's logistics center, which covers an area of 190,000 square metres, incorporates the latest automation technologies for both folded and hanging garments, and is capable of managing 75,000 units per hour. From the center, the company supplies more than 2,100 points of sale around the world.

The hanging garment installation is one of the most automated in Europe, having an automated storage and picking system. On the other hand, the folded garment installation contains different innovative elements, among them an automatic box storage. Additionally, the order preparation system has automatic garment sorters and a man-picking system.

The facility also has a new warehouse management system which, linked to MANGO's corporate system, governs the entire facility in coordination with the automated systems.

MANGO was supported by Miebach Consulting, from the initial design to the commissioning of the facility, which was developed in stages, in a progressive manner. Miebach Consulting's services covered the definition of the automation requirements, the selection of the logistics integrators for both the automations and the Warehouse Management System, and the management of the implementation, including the detail projects, monitoring of the assembly and tests until its commissioning.
