Tom Edwards has been named as ChartCo’s new Head of Procurement, and takes on the responsibility for global purchasing on behalf of ChartCo and its associated offices in this newly created role.

Edwards has a strong procurement, purchasing and project management background both within consultancy and industry with Rolls Royce and the BT Group. He will help deliver traceability and responsible sourcing while working in partnership with suppliers to reduce costs, mitigate risks, drive innovation and growth, and strengthen business relationships.

As a result of the growth of ChartCo’s OneOcean platform, there is an increase in demand for broader and more innovative sets of digital data, and Edwards will also be reviewing the key elements of the ChartCo supply chain to ensure competitiveness and resilience whilst mitigating any risks to its customers.
