Grace Quinn – Manager, Resources Supply Chain says:

“I joined Baringa from a non-consulting background within the Oil and Gas sector. I have since worked on a diverse range of projects which have leveraged on both my industry and supply chain knowledge whilst providing a platform to work across various commodities and markets. Supply chain consulting, particularly within our Resources BU, has exposed me to a global portfolio of clients each at varying stages of maturity and who face unique challenges within their supply chain. No two clients, projects, teams or locations are the same which keeps me sufficiently challenged and motivated.  In the past year alone I have worked with clients based in South Africa, Russia and Scotland to name but a few! One of the things I value most about Baringa is that my career path, aspirations and professional interests do not fit a mould, which I feel is recognized and supported by the leadership team."
