Sarah Hayman
Supply Chain Manager
Warner Music Group

“I am delighted to have won this year’s European Supply Chain Rising Star Award and would like to thank everyone for their support. In particular my employer Warner Music, which continues to engage and support me to further develop my career in supply chain and logistics.”

Sarah Hayman started her career in supply chain management shortly after relocating from Germany to London in 2010. Following her passion Sarah moved into the music industry working across ticketing and physical inventory supply chain functions.

Since 2012 Sarah has been working with Warner Music Group as Supply Chain Manager for the ADA division - an independent music distributor.
She oversees forecasting and planning to maintain optimal levels of inventory and timely stock delivery for over 100 label partners. As part of the ADA team she has contributed to the division winning ‘Best Label/Artist Services Company’ in the 2019 Music Week Awards.

This year, as well as growing her team Sarah has played a key part in planning and executing a major switch in warehouse partners, organising the move of over 5 million units from Germany to France.

Whilst building her career in supply chain management Sarah has balanced the demands of her roles with bringing up two children, something that provides her with even more focus and determination to progress further.
