Oliver Bridge Director, Business Consultant London +44 (0)20 7865 2229

I lead the our operations consulting team, we specialise in manufacturing and supply chain businesses and offer support to:

  • optimise assets and reduce cost
  • develop practical business plans for use by lenders
  • transaction support, including due diligence, integration and separation.

With over 20 years of advisory and industry experience, I specialise in optimisation and due diligence for manufacturing and supply chain businesses, with a particular focus on automotive, metals, plastics and building products.

Since 2008, I have worked on complex international advisory assignments, including cost reduction, process improvement, turnaround and transactions. I particularly enjoy working with industrial businesses, major manufacturing and supply chain assets.

I also have eight years industry experience, in particular, with Anglo American where I managed a large multi-site manufacturing facility in a turn-around process.

Previous experience includes:

  • Operational cost reduction and optimisation of steel manufacturing, automotive, consumer goods, logistics and warehouse assets
  • Optimisation of multiple Tier 1 automotive manufacturing units
  • Private equity transaction and portfolio optimisation support

I was invited to speak at the World Manufacturing Forum in Italy and have been a judge for multiple manufacturing and supply chain awards. I also won MCA (Management Consultancy Association) 2015 overall award for Project of the Year.

Outside of work I enjoy long distance running and watching lower league football. I am also a Chair of Governors for a local primary school.
