Brendan Dowd

Director of Business Development

Avercast Leadership Gene Averill

Brendan’s supply chain career started working as an inventory and production planning manager for a Japanese automotive supply company. Long lead times and high service standards required accurate forecasts.

After spending way too much time trying to build elaborate spreadsheets to plan 20,000 line items, he discovered how much easier and effective it was to plan using specialized software for that purpose. His 23-year career has focused on helping companies excel at Demand Management, Inventory/Production/Distribution Planning, and Sales and Operations Planning.

He has sold and implemented best practice supply chain systems and processes with over 50 companies throughout Asia/Australia/U.S. including: Kraft, Sara Lee Bakery, The Body Shop, Caltex Lubricants, Kodak Polychrome Graphics, The Lonely Planet, Bunnings Hardware, Stanley Tools, Autometer Products, Lincoln Industrial, Roche Diagnostics, Carrier Air Conditioning, Cooper-Bussmann, Fantastic Furniture, and CSL Pharmaceuticals. Brendan earned a Bachelor of Science in logistics from Indiana University and an MBA from Northeastern Illinois University. Brendan is the father of 4 active children and enjoys helping coach their sports teams as well as hiking and camping.

Greg Coleman

Director of Professional Services

Avercast Leadership Gene Averill

Our Australian clients love that Greg brings ‘real world’ demand, supply, and S&OP experience to their projects. Throughout his corporate career at Pilkington Glass and leading biotech company CSL Limited, Greg was heavily involved in demand and supply planning, led S&OP projects, managed budget creation processes, and specialized in getting the most out of forecasting, MRP, and data warehouse systems.

Greg has leveraged those foundational experiences, as well as his business and logistics studies at Monash University, to become one of the most experienced supply chain planning consultants in Australia. In his seventeen years consulting career, Greg has led supply chain planning systems implementation and improvement projects for over 60 clients in Australia and overseas. With a firm belief that developing a strong process is just as important as the software tools used in forecasting and planning.

Greg works diligently with clients to ensure that implementations generate sustainable results and a documented process. Greg’s dedication to client success is unwavering, whether that means staying up late to get data loaded for an important pilot the next day or asking the ‘hard’ questions about whether a client’s process needs to be changed. Like any good Melbournite, Greg is an AFL fanatic, even helping out with coaching for his local AFL team. Greg is the proud father of two children and a rotating mix of rescue greyhounds.
