Jas Mann has been appointed as head of supply chain management (SCM) at Asite, where he will lead the development and growth of the company’s supply chain platform for the built environment.
He has over 20 years’ experience in the built environment industry, previously working at Laing O’Rourke, where he collaborated with the international company’s vast supply chain to continuously enhance the management and development of their enterprise applications.
Mann will lead the development and growth of the Asite SCM solution which enables organisations to interact and manage supply chain data in a more efficient way through one single secure repository. The integrated suite of products – including Asite Marketplace, Supplier Relationship Management, and Bid Winner allow organisations to deliver and manage the whole procurement lifecycle from initial sourcing to benefits realisation.
“I’ve collaborated with Asite for many years now whilst at Laing O’Rourke and am thrilled to join the team to lead our product categories for construction and engineering supply chains and expand Asite’s presence globally along with our customers,” said Mann.
“The work Asite has done over the past two decades has been inspiring, connecting thousands of organisations, and people, worldwide. Delivering supply chain solutions has always been a passion of mine. We’re building the SCM line of business on the most well-established supply chain management platform in the construction space and I can’t think of anything more exciting than that.”
Nathan Doughty, Asite CEO added: “Jas joining Asite marks a truly exciting time for the business. When Asite was first founded in 2001, our focus was building a supply chain platform for the built environment. We proved the technology at the landmark Heathrow Terminal 5 project, and have evolved over the years since to become a complete solution provider for the asset lifecycle. We’ve built and delivered our market-leading Common Data Environment by working with our customers and seen it adopted on landmark capital projects around the world. In 2021 I have challenged the business to bring our original DNA – supply chain management – back to the fore alongside our award-winning CDE.
“Jas is the perfect leader for this push. His experience with Laing O’Rourke, a world leader for innovation and excellence in the global construction industry, gives him invaluable insight and experience rolling out supply chain solutions across the most advanced and multifaceted supply chains.”
