- Candice Herndon, new Vice President FMS and European Key Accounts
Madrid, 19 July 2018 – CHEP, the supply chain solutions company, has announced the appointment of Christophe Campe to the position of Senior Vice-President, European Supply Chain. Mr. Campe is transitioning from his current role of Vice President, First Mile Solutions (FMS) and European Key Accounts, and will be replaced by Candice Herndon, currently Vice President of Strategic Marketing for Europe. FMS covers CHEP Solutions and platforms for inbound packaging flows including Full-Size Plastic Pallets and Pallecon IBCs
“These individuals both bring global expertise and knowledge as well as a deep commitment to helping our customers find innovative solutions to address the growing complexity of the supply chain landscape across Europe,” noted Michael Pooley, President CHEP Pallets, EMEA.
Mr. Campe will be responsible for leading the safe and efficient operations of CHEP’s 350 European Service Centres and managing logistics across the CHEP network in Europe. He has been with CHEP since 1993 developing various strategic positions. He assumed the role of Finance Director for Germany, Nordics and eastern Europe, and held the position of Country General Manager in Benelux and Germany before he entered the FMS and European Key Accounts organisation.
“Our pallets, crates and containers form the invisible backbone of the global supply chain. We have improved and learned from supply chains on six continents over 70 years. The scale and density of our network means we can be faster and more responsive to our customers’ changing needs. Supply chain collaboration is key to achieving mutual cost savings and a safer and more sustainable supply chain, and hence it will be an important part of my new team’s efforts,” Mr Campe said.
Mrs. Herndon joined CHEP in 2006 and has since held various regional and global roles within Sales & Marketing, Strategy, Supply Chain Solutions, Sustainability and Regulatory Affairs. Prior to joining CHEP, she worked for Accenture, where she performed Strategy and Management consulting.
In her new role, Mrs. Herndon will be responsible for further integration and growth of CHEP’s FMS
organisation, while also leading the European Commercial Key Account teams and customer relationships.
“My teams will be focused on understanding the changing needs of our customers and industry and delivering products and solutions that help eliminate waste, risk and cost in the supply chain. As our customers are faced with new challenges and opportunities, CHEP is committed to supporting them in the creation of smarter and more sustainable supply chains,” she said.
