Garry White, Managing Director of supply chain software provider Oasis, has announced he is taking early retirement.
White has been working in the office products industry for the past 33 years, including 16 years at Office Depot and seven years at Staples. He joined Oasis in 2016 and took over as Managing Director a year later.
During the pandemic, White relocated and has now decided to refocus and spend quality time with his young family. He will leave Oasis in the hands of two long-serving execs. Projects Director John Flanagan – who has been with the business since 1996 – has been named Managing Director. He will take the lead role on client and supplier relations, new business and marketing.
Meanwhile, Peter Duncan – at Oasis since 2004 – will support Flanagan as Operations Director, with responsibility for implementation, support, development, finance, and business administration.
Former Managing Director Jo Franklin will continue as Chair, providing support and guidance to the new leadership team.
White will spend the next few weeks conducting a handover with Flanagan and Duncan. He underlined that the leadership change will not impact Oasis’ commitment to its customers’ experience.
