We are pleased to announce that amfori has appointed a new Vice President (VP) for Services, Richard Teply.
Richard will lead our Services function, which encompasses the ongoing overall management of all amfori social and environmental programmes, frontline support and member account management, to ensure amfori members are supported to drive improvements across their supply chains.
"One of the things which attracted me to amfori in these increasingly volatile and uncertain times is that amfori is very well poised to address with urgency the social and environmental issues which affect our economic growth and global wellbeing," Richard Teply.
Richard has over 25 years of experience in long-term and interim roles with global brands in sectors as diverse as building materials, electronics, packaging, logistics, automotive, retail and advertising. He brings a depth and variety of knowledge to amfori, which will help us to better support our members and improve the services we provide. He has worked across Europe, North America and in a variety of emerging markets (Central Asia, China, Indonesia, India).
Richard holds an MBA with distinction from Thunderbird School of Global Management, has studied Executive Leadership at London Business School and is tri-lingual in English, French and Czech.
We are pleased that Richard has joined amfori and will bring his wealth of experience and knowledge to the organisation. We look forward to working together to deliver our mission to ‘Trade with purpose’.
