Today Pedro’s announced the installation of Matthew Simpson as its Global Operations Director. Simpson, a modern day global supply chain and sourcing professional, possesses 14 years’ experience working for top brands within their respective industries, like Stonyfield Farms, Grace Darex, and New England Confectionery Co. (think NECCO wafers and Sweethearts).
Simpson is known globally for building grassroots supply chain and sourcing organizations by using a blend of mainstream corporate sourcing building blocks, combined with a keen, first-hand knowledge of small business, which he learned while working for his family’s business throughout his collegiate years.
“Pedro’s is a tidy little team,” said Chris Zigmont, CEO of Pedro’s. “Like any organization, we’re constantly growing and improving both personally and as an outfit. The addition of Matt Simpson to our group represents a significant gain in our supply chain and logistics prowess and equips us to better supply the market within the conditions of this new economy.”
Now Simpson will call upon his strong background in sustainable sourcing to build sustainable business infrastructures for Pedro’s. His personal values and professional acumen have been trained upon this vocation, which makes him an ideal fit for Pedro’s but he’s got extra talent as well.
“The guy can turn a pedal too, which has boosted the lunchtime ride by three miles per hour!” boasted Zigmont.
Simpson lives in southern New Hampshire with his wife, Kerri, and their three kids. He is a competitive cyclist and an environmental advocate, who tends to the family’s organic garden in his spare time.
