JBT Hires Bryant Lowery as CPO
November 28, 2018
Lowery has joined JBT as Executive Vice President & Chief Procurement
Officer effective November 26, 2018.
"As JBT continues to grow, supply-chain strategy plays an increasingly
important role as we leverage our global scale," said Tom Giacomini,
Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "With the addition of
Bryant to our executive team, we have strengthened leadership of this
critical function and JBT's ability to create a competitive advantage as
we consolidate our supply chain with fewer, stronger suppliers while
improving cost, lead times, and working capital requirements."
"Bryant brings an impressive record of leading supply chain initiatives
that generate significant margin expansion," Giacomini added.
