Former Tesco CEO appointed govt supply chain adviser

A former CEO of Tesco has been appointed as the government’s supply chain adviser.

David Lewis is expected to advise Boris Johnson and Michael Gove on immediate improvements and long term changes to the UK’s supply chains, with an initial focus on resolving ongoing and widely reported issues and blockages.

Lewis will also co-chair a new Supply Chain Advisory Group, consisting of external experts in the field, and a new Industry Taskforce, to ensure those on the ground have the opportunity to voice their concerns and advise on the most efficient resolutions.

Businesses have faced a range of challenges over recent months as they recover from the global pandemic which has impacted supply chains in the UK and around the world.

It is anticipated that David Lewis will be in post until the end of the year.
