OCI bolsters its team with the appointment of industry veteran Neil Edwards

OCI has bolstered its senior management team with the appointment of Neil Edwards as Trade Director.

Mr Edwards is an experienced trade and supply chain finance professional and coverage banker, and brings with him 25+ years of knowledge and expertise. He has managed relationships and led origination efforts with multinationals across a variety of sectors at Citi, Commerzbank and RBS as well as in the non-bank sector.

OCI partners with large corporates and global governments, including some of the world’s largest commodity producers, to effectively streamline and support their supply chain.

Neil said: “Recent geopolitical events have, not before time, brought the analysis of their supply chains to the forefront of our clients’ thinking. OCI’s innovative, end-to-end solutions – from global sourcing, optimised logistics to flexible financing – are unique in the market. They maximise working capital efficiencies for businesses and ensure rapid growth. I am excited to be able to bring OCI’s holistic, consultative and long-term approach to our fast-growing number of corporate partners.”

Oliver Chapman, CEO of OCI, said: “The supply chain has always been important, but the experiences of the last year have highlighted how vital a detailed understanding of the supply chain is to organisations. With Neil taking on the role of Trade Director, our understanding of the detail that underpins the supply chain, is enhanced by even more.”
