Our Story

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 the United States.

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 both of 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, and subsequent supply chain recruiting projects with Kimberly-Clark, Cummins and PWC, 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 that includes Retained Executive Search, Contract Staffing and Contingency Search. SCM Talent Group is headquartered in downtown Asheville, NC and supports clients located throughout the United States.
