SCM Talent Group, LLC was founded in Atlanta, GA by Rodney Apple in 2004. Rodney has worked as a Supply Chain Recruiter for the majority of his 20-year career within the staffing industry. To date, he has successfully filled more than 1,000 supply chain positions ranging from executive-level in Fortune 500 headquarters settings to leadership and staff-level roles across large networks of manufacturing and distribution facilities within North America.
Spanning almost a decade, Rodney worked onsite at the corporate headquarters for The Coca-Cola Company and The Home Depot where he led professional and executive recruiting for their Global Supply Chain organizations. This experience allowed Rodney to gain a deep understanding of Supply Chain Management and is where he began building his vast network of contacts and relationships within Logistics, Global Sourcing & Procurement, Manufacturing, Inventory Management, Continuous Improvement, Engineering, Quality, Sustainability and related disciplines.
Building upon his successes at Home Depot and Coca-Cola, Rodney decided to expand the company’s service offerings in 2012 beyond exclusive retained client engagements. The firm currently offers a broad range of customizable supply chain recruiting services across numerous industries such as Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG / FMCG), Retail, Food & Beverage, Hi-Tech, Telecommunications, Healthcare, Energy & Utilities, Automotive, Logistics & Transportation, Chemicals and Management Consulting.
