Head of Tactical Procurement
Sean’s career at JTI (formerly Gallaher) started in 1989 working in the Cigar Division in Cardiff, South Wales where he was the cigar leaf buyer.
His procurement roles from this point on brought him extensive commercial and procurement knowledge across a wide variety of categories around the world from Holland, South America and in to Asia and the Far East and also provided invaluable insight into the challenges within the travel industry.
With 27 years' of experience in a variety of roles in the UK tobacco industry, his position now as JTI’s UK head of tactical procurement involves the creation and execution of the procurement strategy and the management of internal transactional processing for all JTI UK-based entities.
Sean likes cycling, horse racing and rugby (especially “the Blues”).
