Advanced Supply Chain Group (ASCG) – part of the Reconomy Group – has appointed Lisa Rowlinson-Brown (pictured) as people director to create and implement a new people strategy and vision.
A chartered fellow of the Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), she has more than two decades of industry experience leading the transformation of culture for organisations and their people.
In her new role, she will support ASCG’s ambition to be the best supply chain business to work for in the sector and has already rolled-out a leadership development programme, as well as repositioning the people team as strategic partners.
“As a business and team, we will relentlessly pursue our vision of being the best supply chain business to work for," she said. "We already have a fantastic culture made up of talented people who live and breathe our values. It is a great place to work, and we want to cement this by achieving a Great Place to Work accreditation.

“As a team, it is our role to relaunch our values to ensure we effectively engage and communicate with our people. We have a team of more than 1,300 across the globe, speaking 24 different languages and we need to make sure each individual has the best experience and feels truly connected to our values and vision.”
In 2021, ASCG was acquired by the Reconomy Group to support its long-term growth ambitions. Rowlinson-Brown will work closely with the wider Reconomy Group to unlock the group’s combined potential and support career opportunities and the employee value proposition across the business.
ASCG MD, Claire Webb, added: “Lisa joined us six months ago and has already had a significant impact on our culture and organisation. We know our talent and technology is what sets us apart in the industry and her role will be vital to our future success as a business and the success of everyone in our team.”
