Rodney is one of the most respected, highly experienced, and well-networked recruiters I know. His recruiting skills are top level and I consider him to be a rock-solid, “A-player”. Building expertise and deep knowledge in the supply chain recruiting function has given Rodney the ability to quickly network, source, evaluate, and bring to the table top talent for his clients, especially in very challenging environments. He’s successfully managed very high volume requisition loads and challenging projects while representing the entire supply chain function as a Talent Acquisition Partner from a strategic business partner perspective, all with impressive results. Rodney has a strong entrepreneurial focus and tenacity that allows him to effectively consult with clients and manage all recruiting efforts for the business units he supports, both at the corporate and field levels.

About the Author: Rodney Apple
Rodney founded SCM Talent Group back in August of 2004 in Atlanta, GA. He has been completely specialized in end-to-end supply chain recruitment since 2001 when he joined The Home Depot (Fortune 13 at the time) to lead the recruitment for their very first supply chain department. Rodney went on to lead all professional and executive supply chain recruitment for The Coca-Cola Company for 6+ years followed by a few other clients that included Kimberly-Clark, Cummins, and PWC. In 2012, after successfully filling more than 1,000 professional to executive supply chain positions for the aforementioned companies, Rodney decided to bolster SCM Talent Group’s service offerings beyond exclusive retained client engagements. He expanded the firm’s client base across most major industries within the United States, focusing on serving manufacturers, retailers, wholesale distributors, and logistics service providers. Rodney’s passion for the field of supply chain management is evident through his involvement within the industry and various supply chain associations. He has presented at CSCMP and APICS global conferences, served as the Career Coach for ASCM (formerly APICS) from 2014-2021, and was a Department Author for ASCM’s magazine SCM NOW, contributing articles under “Professional Development” from 2017-2021. Rodney also authors the Supply Chain Talent Blog where he shares best practices in supply chain recruiting, leadership development, job search strategy, resume optimization, interviewing techniques, and related topics. Lastly, Rodney is in process of writing his first book which will be centered on supply chain careers and talent development, due to launch in early 2021.
