DBA Candidate Lotoya Ellis

Lotoya Ellis

Lotoya is currently the Customer Service and Logistics Manager for Desnoes & Geddes Limited, a Heineken Operating company, located in Kingston, Jamaica. She has over 15 years’ experience in logistics and supply chain management, having worked with major manufacturers, such as J. Wray and Nephew Limited, a Gruppo Campari Company, where Lotoya led the relocation and consolidation of logistics, warehousing, distribution and transportation activities.

Lotoya's experience consists of supply chain design, site logistics master planning and design, warehouse design, distribution and transport management, customer service, S&OP, reverse logistics and project management (WMS and ERP). Being a result- and customer service-oriented individual, Lotoya also has interest in business process development and optimisation and continuous improvement.

Lotoya believes the microeconomic consequences of a siloed mentality towards the micro and macro level of a company’s existence can have a significant impact on their success and on the country’s economy. Lotoya selected a DBA to expand her knowledge in the global supply chain management field and positively support the economic and social changes within Jamaica.
