With a wealth of experience in supply chain, Clarke will be responsible for leading Repco and NAPA’s supply chain operations across its five distribution centres, including inventory replenishment to over 120 stores around the country.

Jonathon Maddren Executive General Manager, GPC NZ says Clarke Hill’s strength in high volume, commercial fulfilment from FMCG will be a key factor underpinning GPC’s ambitious growth plans.
