Our Team

Our people like working for us and you’ll like working with our people

At Brookes we share a passion for Supply Chain  –  that’s just the way we are.​ We’re professional, calm and competent.​​

Most of our team are computer scientists, logisticians and engineering graduates, with the odd (very odd) mathematician thrown in.​ Some of us are just starting our technical careers, some of us have years (and years) of practical industry experience but we all talk about Supply Chain most of the time, sharing best practice with our colleagues and customers. ​

When you choose Brookes, the same team who sold you the solution, will design it and deliver it for your business.​

We’re based in Central London

​Our Head Office is just off Oxford Circus. It’s a creative space, reflecting our brand values of collaboration and relationships which are built on mutual respect and shared successes.  We’ve recently opened offices in Greece and Malaysia, so we can be on hand for our global clients.

The London Office, where we’re based, is a former BBC building and is named after Henry Wood, the famous English conductor and founder of the Proms!​​

Meet our Senior Team

Experienced, professional and client focused.​

Martin Woodward
CEO

​I founded the company, over 15 years ago. 

Since 2005, we’ve been helping customers to increase revenue and release cash, through better planning.  ​I’m very proud of how the team has grown, both in size and capability, to deliver for a wide range of customers. ​

Running complex supply chains for Unilever, re-engineering them with Ernst & Young and implementing supply chain software with i2/JDA, provided a great foundation for starting my own planning company. ​

At Brookes we help people work smarter, not harder. 

Doing things more efficiently, cutting down on waste, using a little less of the world’s resources. I hope we can leave things a little better than we found them. ​

I love everything to do with sport and am still playing football as a “Super Vet!”

James Triggs
COO

As Chief Operating Officer at Brookes, I have overall responsibility for implementation, consulting and ongoing support of supply chain solutions. ​

I have 30 years of experience in manufacturing and supply chain.

During the past 14 years, with Brookes and ToolsGroup, my roles have included Head of Sales and Pre-Sales Director.

I’m a Chartered Engineer and in my early career designed and implemented electronics manufacturing and logistics systems for Sony and held management roles at LG and Panasonic.

When time and tide align, I enjoy big boat sailing and am studying for a supplementary degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics.

Stuart Clarke
Account Director​

I bring experience from my career in management consulting, delivering value through transforming supply chain operations.  Beginning my career as a Chemical Engineer, in manufacturing at Unilever, I then moved into management consulting with Accenture and Kearney, specialising in Supply Chain and Operations. ​

Brookes stands out to me as having the right mix of experienced supply chain consultants, deep technical expertise and software solutions. 

The diversity of the team enables us to deliver a step change in supply chain planning performance, a significant return on investment and a sustainable operations competitive advantage, for our customers. ​

​All companies face significant complexities in driving supply chain performance improvements, what drives me professionally is working collaboratively to identify the most efficient and effective ways to achieve success for our customers and their business. ​

​Outside of work, we’re an active family and enjoy sports, getting out for walks and cycling in the countryside. I play hockey for a local club and help coach both of my childrens’ hockey teams. 

Simon McCarthy
Director of Professional Services​

I’ve been developing and implementing supply chain systems for over 30 years and with Brookes for the last 10 of them.​

​In 2018, I took on the role of Director of Professional Services. I leading a highly skilled and experienced consulting team, specialising in Solution Implementation and Integration.

​Brookes is different because of the broad knowledge and experience across many different industry sectors, this puts us in a unique position to deliver solutions for a wide variety of supply chain issues.

​I was involved in the development of the MURCO product at Data Sciences, one of the first generation of Forecasting and Inventory Management products on the market; my career has followed the industry ever since.

​My guitar is the only thing that I’ve been trying to master longer, but it’s unlikely that there will be an imminent change of career! ​
