Philip Molnar

Chief Procurement & Technical Officer, Britvic PLC

 

Philip Molnar is an experienced International Operations, Supply Chain and Procurement Executive. He has over 35 years of experience and a bias towards business start-up and turnarounds in the retail, FMCG, B2B, food / beverage, and hospitality sectors.
Philip has worked and travelled extensively with major blue chip and private equity-owned businesses such as Pepsi, IBM, Starbucks, Findus, and is currently at Britvic as Chief Procurement & Technical Officer responsible for more than £1 billion of global corporate spend and all R&D, and product quality. Dynamic commercial and economic challenges and change have been strong key themes during his career, including:

· the opening of central and Eastern Europe;

· rapid economic expansion in the Middle East;

· the commercial growth of India;

· the challenges of financial turbulence in Canada / US and Europe post 2008

· strong corporate growth or cost reduction ambitions;

· the implications of Brexit

Whilst Philip strongly believes in having a thorough sourcing and negotiating strategy, he is also a firm believer that extra-ordinary value creation in procurement comes from innovative and creative thinking, the rigorous challenging of the status quo and to appreciate how procurement forms an integral part of the broader supply chain.
A committed Brexiteer, Philip works near London, lives in Edinburgh and relaxes by mountain climbing and keeping bees.
