We are delighted to welcome Nathan Doak as our new partner in Australia. Based in Sydney, Nathan joins Oliver Wight with over 25 years’ experience working across FMCG, oil and gas, chemical, and construction industries.

As a passionate change agent, Nathan will complement the Oliver Wight team helping companies optimise inventory, improve service and increase profits.
Prior to joining Oliver Wight, Nathan held a number of senior leadership roles within FMCG and commodities companies. He was responsible for strategy development and transformation projects using the principles of Integrated Business Planning. Nathan’s most notable role was his position at BP Lubricants, implementing Oliver Wight processes across 17 countries within Asia Pacific. His work in implementing standardised processes across the business helped break down functional silos and drove greater demand forecast accuracy, while also improving the execution of strategy.
“We are thrilled to have Nathan join our team,” says Stuart Harman, Partner at Oliver Wight. “With a career to date spanning multiple roles and functions he has literally ‘walked in the shoes’ of many of our clients. His significant experience implementing Integrating Business Planning and Demand Planning processes, means he already understands the impact that the integration of people, processes and tools has in transforming an organisation. With his skills, experience and ability to work with people from a range of cultures, we know Nathan is the perfect fit for Oliver Wight.”
“I have been lucky enough to be influenced by Oliver Wight’s processes for some time, so when the opportunity came up to be part of the team, I couldn’t turn it down,” explains Nathan. “I am really looking forward to utilising my experience to help businesses tackle their challenges and extract value for my clients, working alongside the very best coaches in the field.”
