Hi, I’m John Chase, founder and principal of SOPPLAN.
Sales and Operations Planning is my passion. I have been involved in S&OP since the early 1980’s, even before it was called S&OP.
Since that time I have worked as a hands-on consultant to companies in the food and dairy, consumer goods, garment, agricultural produce, building products, automotive, steel-making and petrochemical industries.
I have been privileged to lead the Supply Chain Management teams in two major consulting firms – Ernst & Young and KPMG Consulting (BearingPoint).
Alongside my S&OP focus I have worked extensively in Continuous Improvement and Lean Manufacturing. There is nothing more satisfying than to identify an improvement opportunity through the S&OP process, then to make the shop-floor improvements and measure the benefit in the S&OP KPI reports.
