Supply Chain Management Training
Demand Driven MRP & Replenishment+
Systems Implementation/Upgrading
ISO 9000 Implementation

Colin was born in Cape Town, South Africa and educated in Zimbabwe and England, where he graduated from the University of London with a BSc Engineering. After working for a Zambian mining company as an electrical engineer, he joined the South African electricity utility, Eskom, as a project engineer and was eventually appointed to the Koeberg Nuclear Power Station project. After its completion, he was given the task of assessing the spare parts requirements and optimising the power station's spares inventories.

From 1989 to 2009 he was employed as Materials Manager and later as Operations Manager by Petrel Engineering, a manufacturer and exporter of marine equipment, and was also responsible for Quality Assurance and Information Technology.

In 1996, Colin became the first practitioner in South Africa to be awarded a Fellowship in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM-F) by APICS, the global professional association for supply chain and operations management. Since 1994, he has assisted other companies with ERP and ISO 9000 systems implementations and has regularly presented APICS and SAPICS training courses, initially on a part-time basis, then full-time from 2009.  In 2017, he developed and launched a novel Self-Study with Tutoring programme for the APICS certifications, which has been extremely successful in enabling Certification candidates to pass the APICS exam.

Colin served as a director of APICS from 2013-2015 and as a director of its South African partner, SAPICS from 2010-2012 and 2016-2019.   He is an APICS accredited instructor for CSCP, CPIM, CLTD and others, an ISCEA authorized instructor for CSCA and a Demand Driven Institute endorsed instructor for DDP.

Colin has appeared as a speaker at the annual SAPICS conferences in 1994, 1995, 1998, 2004, 2009, 2013 and 2015. In 2010 and 2016 he was invited to speak at the APICS conferences in the USA, in 2011 and 2017 at the SMART Conferences in Australia and in 2011 at the Supply Chain World South-East Asia Conference in Singapore.
