Our Founder, Rodney Apple, began working in supply chain recruiting in 1998 before supply chain became popular in the business world (listen to his start-up story via the Supply Chain Now Podcast).

In 2001, Rodney received a call from The Home Depot, a Fortune 15 corporation at the time, concerning a project to lead recruitment for the build-out of the company’s first supply chain department. Rodney landed the role and soon after recruited their ground floor supply chain organization consisting of a VP of Supply Chain, Director of Replenishment, and 11 Sr Supply Chain Managers. He went on to lead all professional and executive supply chain recruitment for the company through 2004.

Home Depot is where Rodney fell in love with supply chain management. He recognized early on that supply chain was going to be “a big deal” for many years to come, and in 2004, Rodney formed SCM Talent Group with the goal of helping other companies build and transform their supply chain organizations.
Rodney’s first client was The Coca-Cola Company, where he spent 6+ years leading all professional and executive supply chain recruiting for 20+ factories, strategic sourcing & procurement, inventory planning, S&OP, logistics, continuous improvement, quality and related departments.

Building upon 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.

From 2014-2021 Rodney proudly served as the Supply Chain Career Coach for the Association of Supply Chain Management Professionals (ASCM, formerly APICS) and led the Professional Development department as a writer for ASCM’s magazine, SCM Now.

Rodney also authors The Supply Chain Talent Blog and has been featured in many of the leading supply chain trade journals over the years sharing his expertise in supply chain recruiting and career development. In 2021 Rodney will be publishing his first book titled Supply Chain Careers – the Guidebook for Launching and Accelerating your Career in Supply Chain Management.
SCM Talent Group currently offers a broad range of customizable supply chain recruiting services that include Retained Executive Search, Contract Staffing, Interim Executives, and Contingency Search.

“SCM Talent Group is my go-to recruitment team when I need to find top talent. They are incredibly professional and find all-star candidates lightning fast ensuring that the individuals placed are a great cultural fit. I can’t recommend SCM Talent Group enough!”

Jim Henson, Senior Vice President of Supply Chain, Redbud Brands

“During the entire process with SCM Talent Group, we felt they were open to listening and ensuring they were on the right path towards finding the right candidates for our open position. From the introductory call to communication during the process, we felt they were very accommodating and open to all our feedback.  They were prompt and detailed with all candidate information and would assist in scheduling interviews in a timely manner.  Their follow up after interviews was prompt, and we felt we could be transparent with them regarding candidate feedback.”

Sheree Lauer, Associate Director of Recruiting/HR Department, SusieCakes Bakeries

“I reached out to SCM Talent Group and spoke with Emily who was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. We had several meetings with PCM leadership to discuss salary, the market conditions and timeline. With Emily’s guidance, we convinced leadership to pivot and make our positions remote. After that change, Emily placed two highly qualified candidates in a very short time. We have been impressed with the communication, knowledge of the market and overall kindness of SCM Talent Group. I would highly recommend working with them on your PCM needs.”

Timothy Staley, Talent Acquisition Manager, AARP

“Supply Chain is one of the few areas at Berlin where we utilize outside search. We originally had a partner that we were/are very happy with, but that firm was at capacity, so we needed some more help. SCM Talent Group was a known entity to one of our HR Business Partners, so we set up a meeting with their Founder and Managing Partner. Right from the beginning, I knew we had another rock-solid partner. SCM Talent Group’s staff have been in the Supply Chain space for a very long time, so it was very easy for them to understand exactly what we were looking for. Our hiring managers have a great relationship with Jordan West in particular, who has been a joy to work with not only because he is smart and on the ball, but brings them great talent in the toughest market on record. I would highly recommend SCM Talent Group for any Supply Chain or Quality search needs! SCM Talent Group will be partners with Berlin for a very long time.”

Jill Perlstein, Director of Talent Management, Berlin Packaging

“Recruiting firms are a dime a dozen, but true partnerships with a firm are rare – this is what you’ll enjoy with SCM Talent Group. They became an extension of our team and I highly recommend their services to any organization.”

Shannon McCarthy, Sr. Talent Acquisition Specialist, Vital Proteins

“Rodney Apple is an extremely talented and well-networked recruiting professional with extensive experience in the supply chain field. Rodney has consistently managed high volume and high impact positions for the Supply Chain team at Coca-Cola. He’s adept at utilizing technology and tools to efficiently manage the recruitment process and has a strong ability to recruit top talent in the space.”

Director of Global Talent Acquisition, The Coca-Cola Company

Rodney Apple’s partnership as our senior-most search professional at Home Depot was key to talent acquisition within the supply chain organization during a period of immense growth (30%+) at Home Depot . His collaborative approach to the business, coupled with his tenacity in finding superb candidates, was unmatched in my experience. I would welcome the opportunity to partner with Rodney anywhere and anytime to build a more talented or expanded logistics team.”

Vice President of Distribution, The Home Depot

“I saw the hiring of new team members as one of the biggest keys to our success, and SCM Talent Group has brought us nothing but high-quality candidates.  We thank them very much for providing us with such terrific services!  We truly appreciate the partnership we have forged with SCM Talent Group.”

Brad Fulkerson, President and CEO, Aurora Parts & Accessories
