John Whitehead


Associate Director

Engineering & Operations Supply chain

Business to Business, Consumer, Healthcare, Not-For-Profit, Retail 

John joined the Six Degrees family in 2014 to manage the Supply Chain & Procurement team in Melbourne. John currently sources talent at Management and Director Level across the FMCG, 3PL and Industrial industries throughout Victoria.

In 2005, John joined an international recruitment business, helping establish their newly formed Supply Chain & Logistics Division, in London. He relocated to Melbourne in 2009 to manage the Supply Chain & Logistics team with the same business. His expertise not only comes from years recruiting within his specialist disciplines, but John also worked in industry as a Logistics Analyst for Masterfoods.

Developing his team is John’s biggest passion and this Richard Branson quote resonates most with him: “a company’s employees are its greatest asset and your people are your product. When a company fails to grasp this simple business tenet, the result is invariably an oppositional “us and them” divide between management and front-line staff”
