OUR STORY

Founded in 2004, SCM Talent Group is a national supply chain recruiting and executive search firm that recruits across the full spectrum of the supply chain discipline. 

Our Founder, Rodney Apple, has worked as a Supply Chain Recruiter for most of his 19-year career in staffing and has personally filled more than 1,000 professional to executive level supply chain positions for clients ranging from Fortune 15 to start-up. 

Rodney began his career in supply chain recruiting back in 2001 with The Home Depot – a Fortune 15 corporation at the time. In this role Rodney led all professional and executive recruitment for the entire Global Logistics Organization which included Corporate Headquarters, Regional Offices and approximately 80 Distribution Centers and Cross-dock facilities.

Building on his Home Depot successes, Rodney formed SCM Talent Group in August of 2004 with the goal of helping other companies optimize their supply chains by connecting them with top supply chain talent.

SCM Talent Group’s first client was The Coca-Cola Company. Working at their headquarters in Atlanta, Rodney spent several years leading professional and executive recruitment for Coca-Cola’s Global Supply Chain Organization. The scope of the work included recruitment for the following:

  • 22 Beverage Manufacturing Plants
  • Supply Chain Strategy & Program Management
  • Global Sourcing & Procurement
  • Logistics / Transportation / Warehousing
  • Supply & Demand Planning
  • Continuous Improvement / Operational Excellence
  • Global Quality
  • Engineering and Capital Programs
  • Supporting functions such as HR, Finance and Environmental, Health & Safety

After wrapping up the long-term recruiting project with Coca-Cola, Rodney decided to expand SCM Talent Group’s service offerings beyond exclusive retained recruiting engagements. The firm currently provides a broad portfolio of supply chain recruiting services to numerous clients across most industries throughout the United States.
