Global supply chain consultancy, TMX Transform, has appointed Tristan Butt as chief operating officer to oversee its Asia Pacific business operations.

Butt brings over two decades of industry experience across Australia, the United Kingdom, and Europe, most recently with KPMG, where he was partner in the firm’s customer and operations advisory and led the retail sector for the ANZ consulting division.

He combines strategy with a deep understanding of the end-to-end value chain, having worked with FMCG and retail brands including Woolworths, Amazon, Mars, Unilever and L’Oreal.

Commenting on his appointment, Butt said, “TMX is committed to ensuring their clients succeed in making their supply chains a point of difference. Their end-to-end offering is unrivalled, and the people are the best in the business at what they do, which is what attracted me to TMX.

“I’m looking forward to working alongside our industry talent to deliver best-in-class supply chain solutions for our clients, as well as supporting TMX’s growth, particularly when it comes to collaborating across international markets.”

TMX Transform CEO, Travis Erridge added, “Our clients are facing tough economic conditions, increased cost of capital, labour shortages, too much inventory and end-to-end visibility challenges, which has fuelled the expansion of our business worldwide.

“This global expansion meant we needed a COO who could execute at the highest level against significant supply chain complexities and requirements. Tristan was hand-picked to help take TMX to the next level, connecting our divisions and enhancing our operational effectiveness globally.  Tristan brings unique industry and consulting perspectives to TMX that will be instrumental in our future success.”

TMX provides strategic guidance and execution to address supply chain challenges and to connect supply chain transformation with critical business functions.
