Supply Chain Wizard (SCW) – a leading full-service global consulting firm specializing in serialization and traceability, as well as supply chain strategy and operational transformation programs – has opened a new UK-Ireland office in London, and a new Latin American office in Miami.

Both executives will utilize their deep knowledge of complex, global supply chain programs to assist SCW in helping new and existing customers maximize the effectiveness of their serialization programs through building world-class supply chain solutions.
Mr. Varambhia also serves as Director of Client Success for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region, and also is overseeing the Asia-Pacific region expansion on an interim basis.
Dedicated to optimizing operations for growth, service and efficiency, Supply Chain Wizard offers strategic innovations inproducts and servicestargeting serialization and supply chain transformation initiatives, along with a team of expert consultants providing comprehensive support toward cost-effective compliance with serialization mandates and post-go-live operational support.
Both Mr. Varambhia and Mr. Buelvas have more than 15 years of experience working on complex, global supply chain programs. Prior to joining Supply Chain Wizard, Mr. Varambhia provided senior-level consulting services to a variety of companies, including Mars, Inc., Eli Lilly & Company, Novartis, Philip Morris International, F.
