Mark Cunningham joins MBA from Amazon

MBA is delighted to announce the appointment of Mark Cunningham as Group Production Operations Director.

Mark joined MBA in November 2014 following a successful 10-year career at Amazon where he was responsible for both the establishment and relocation of their semi-automated fulfilment centres and Europe-wide process management. In total, Mark has over 26 years of industry experience in manufacturing and fulfilment with previous experience at Polaroid and Nestle Purina.

Mark is a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and within his first six months at MBA, he has successfully implemented 5S methodologies across the business to improve our workplace organisation and production procedures. This has seen many of our people trained in the global standard of 5S and leading the adoption of 5S best practice across their departments.

"We are extremely happy to publicly announce and formerly welcome Mark to our team" said MBA Group Managing Director, Linda Bosch. "In looking for a Group Production Director we were keen to introduce someone from outside of the industry so that we could benefit from alternative views and experiences in production. It was a different approach, but one that has proven to be a sound judgment. Mark's previous experience at Amazon has enabled him to introduce new disciplines and a welcome management style that will be a benefit to both the business and staff."

After making a great start, Mark is committed to maintaining the momentum on continuous improvement at MBA's sites in London and Warrington, and sustaining the high level of standards and service for our clients.
