Originally a civil engineer, Derek moved onto logistics operations. This included the parcels sector (DPD) then warehouse operations for Unipart Logistics where lean processing was being implemented. This included managing JCB’s spare parts operation in North America.
The last 15 years has been spent managing projects for both large and small companies where it was important for people, processes and systems were developed and deployed harmoniously.
Derek founded Vos Voco to enable businesses of all size to benefit from advances in smart phone and cloud technology. Vos Voco’s core business will be found on industrial estates where improving minor processes in every-day businesses allows significant uplifts in productivity, quality, sales and profitability.
