Paul Eastwood, the founder of Australian management consultancy Pollen Consulting Group, has been named a top executive in Asia Pacific by business magazine CEO Review.

Named a top executive in supply chain management consulting in the Asia Pacific region, Paul Eastwoord has been leading Pollen Consulting Group since he founded the firm in 2016. Based in Sydney, Pollen Consulting Group aims to drive innovation in the Asia Pacific's supply chain management market, with a key focus on the consumer goods space. 

In Australia’s consulting market, Pollen Consulting Group is fast becoming the go-to consulting firm for clients seeking value chain transformations, and fostering collaboration in the fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector.

In just three years Pollen has partnered with a vast range of family run businesses to ASX listed companies, providing solutions they need by delivering engagements that focus on values rather than process. With a refreshingly creative and personal approach, the consulting firm has managed to nestle its way into the top ranks of the industry.

Pollen draws on Eastwood’s industry expertise to drive innovation in the supply chain management market. Originally from the United Kingdom, Eastwood has supported organisations around the world through his extensive career, which spans for more than 15 years.

As a leader, Eastwood’s down to earth approach is honest and fun; he is a straight-talker with a passion for simplifying supply chains and thrives on working collaboratively to find the best possible solutions to his clients' greatest challenges. 

When he initially created Pollen, Eastwood had a vision to create 'a management consultancy with a difference'. This was done by employing a team of bright entrepreneurs and running a flat-structure business where employees are able to manage projects independently.

As a result, the business expanded rapidly by adding new divisions to meet clients' needs and complement the existing consultancy capabilities. This includes Pollen Asset Advisory, Pollen Tech, Pollen Training Academy and most recently Pollen Procurement which have been added to the portfolio and directed by innovative team members. 

Fundamentally, Pollen Consulting Group's vision is to drive bottom-line performance by harnessing and creating value throughout the supply chain whilst continuing to deliver impressive results globally.
