Management and Governance
We’re a group of professionals who’ve banded together to bring this project to light. The principals of the company have worked on various projects together for over fifteen years. We like to scale audacious ideas where failure is just as important as success; fail fast, test again, incubate and scale what works. This team has been assembled specifically for this project to verify its impact on a global scale.
Managing Director, Glen Munholland, President, Circular Supply Chains Inc.
Glen is a lead expert for ISO TC-323 Circular Economy, he sits on the Management Board of the National Zero Waste Council and he has had this project accepted onto the UN’s One Planet Network under Sustainable Food Systems (SDG #12). Glen has been a corporate accountant for over 30 years with experience managing both, privately held SME’s and public multi-nationals. His expertise lies in the field of long-term Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) installations management. During his career Glen developed a company that handled reverse logistics for Walmart, Sears, Costco and The Bay in Western Canada from 1995 to 2014. It was from this experience that Glen realized the extreme inefficiencies inherent to large scale supply chains and decided to develop the Cargo Carousel System. On the path to commercializing this technology the team recognized a win-win opportunity to eliminate modern slavery from supply chains while improving the livelihoods of smallholder farmers with a focus on gender equality and that has been an ongoing theme for the company moving forward.
