The company said in a statement that as CDO, Palfrey’s primary focus will be to realize Li & Fung’s vision of the supply chain of the future and build the LF Digital Platform – a fully-integrated digital platform that connects suppliers, customers and other partners with end-to-end visibility.

“As Chief Digital Officer, Darren plays a critical role in helping us get closer to our vision of creating the supply chain of the future,” said Spencer Fung, CEO of Li & Fung, adding, “2019 is the year of acceleration of our digital strategy and that’s where our new CDO Darren comes in.”

He has held a number of leadership roles including divisional director of supply chain at Allport, development director at Uniserve Group, and in the supply chain team at TTC Global.
