About Liam

Liam is a senior advisor and consultant with a 40+ year track record of turning around poorly performing operations, supply chains and suppliers. His unmatched expertise in applying Lean Principles – without compromise – coupled with the leadership skills necessary to implement them and ensure long term success, has been recognized by major international institutes and journals.

Liam started his career in operational roles for General Motors in the UK, and eventually rose to become a Senior Operations Manager, as well as General Manager of Lean Practices for Gillette and Procter & Gamble where he created benchmark sites in Ireland, Europe, USA, India and China. This included a large operation in the USA mid west that he was assigned to prepare for closure but instead led a Lean Transformation Program that within 2 years eliminated China & Mexico as threats and made it the best performing operation in the global organization.

For the last ten years, Liam has provided hands-on consultancy to support global organizations across Europe, Asia and the US. Liam has authored several published articles about transforming manufacturing plants from traditional to “Lean” and is the recipient of several awards, including “best paper” at the Institute of Logistics & Transport Conference in 1997.
