Ben Ellins

IT & Digital Director – Factory Operations

I love factories… but I love digital factories even more! I find the process of converting raw materials and semi-finished goods into the products you see on shop shelves fascinating, and I like nothing better than spending time on the shop floor talking to operators, looking at tasks and flows, and understanding the systems that support them. I’ve spent all my career in IT in CPG companies and my family hold Reckitt very close to our hearts. Now, with significant experience in delivering valuable systems and infrastructure at scale, I’m always on the lookout for the next opportunity to add value, improve quality or reduce risk via digital capabilities. Whether you consider this the fourth or the fifth industrial revolution, I’m more focused on the value to our business, the scalability of opportunity, and the people who will realise the benefit.
