Kurt Salmon Brings Back Supply Chain Exec as Retail Partner

Brian Ehrig joined management consulting firm Kurt Salmon as a partner in its retail and consumer products group.

Ehrig has spent the past 16 years creating new operational strategies and product offerings for retail and consumer goods companies, as well as leading transformation projects, including those for new market entrances and involving new retail concepts. In Ehrig's most recent role as director at PwC, for example, he developed the operational model, organizational structure and repeatable approach for a $2-billion specialty retailer to drive new revenue streams by entering 12 to 15 new geographies over a five-year period.

"Retail and CPG companies are increasingly looking for new operating models that support more direct connection and interaction with their customers, across channels and geographies, and Kurt Salmon's nimbleness and deep industry expertise make it uniquely positioned to provide best-in-class solutions for these challenges," said Ehrig.

Prior to PwC, Ehrig spent three years with Kurt Salmon, where he focused on bringing supply chain and product development improvements to soft lines companies, and three years with boutique firm PSINet Consulting, where he similarly optimized clients' supply chain processes. In between, he led ERP implementation projects for the electronics manufacturer Flextronics.

Madison Riley, managing partner of Kurt Salmon's North American operations, lauded Ehrig's track record of using innovation to transform the businesses of retail and CPG companies.

"We're thrilled to welcome Brian back to Kurt Salmon," he said. "His focus on innovation will bring tremendous value to our clients who are looking to expand their footprint while also improving their processes."

Ehrig holds a bachelor's degree in supply chain management from Arizona State University and an MBA from the University of Virginia's Darden School of Business. He is a member of the Supply Chain and Product Innovation Committee for the American Apparel & Footwear Association. He also acts as an advisor for Soles4Souls, a charitable organization focused on fighting global poverty by repurposing footwear and apparel.
