The August issue of Supply Chain Digital is now live!

As you’ve come to expect, we have a jam-packed issue for you, cutting through the noise to provide razor sharp industry insights, exclusive company reports and the broadest selection of interviews from executives from around the world.

Adorning our cover this month is the City of London Corporation. We speak to Christopher Bell, a man with more than 20 years’ experience in leading procurement and commercial functions.

Two years ago, Bell was appointed as the organisation’s first Commercial Director and has since been named CIPs Procurement and Supply Chain Management Professional of the Year, having achieved £23mn in savings over the period.

It is truly a procurement transformation story; in which he tells Supply Chain Digital how he and his team are working to support and promote London as one of the world’s elite global business centres. 


We also got a cracking piece from Innogy, with its CPO Ulrich Piepel discussing the importance of the right staff at renewable energy giant, in an exclusive video interview this month.

As well as a motivated workforce, embracing automation and placing procurement strategy at the fore are vital to making a splash in the energy world, says the CPO.

The theme of agenda setting interviews continues with Girish Rishi, CEO of JDA Software, which has made waves with a number of announcements in 2018.

An important component of many of the world’s most valuable supply chains, Rishi talks digital disruption, company transformations and the future of tech in an eye-opening chat.
