Dr Alexandre Metreveli

Lecturer in Operations and Supply Chain Management

School of Strategy and Leadership
Coventry Business School
Faculty of Business and Law


I am the Lecturer in Operations and Supply Chain Management, as well as the undergraduate year two Tutor on Continuous Development Programme at the School of Strategy and Leadership. My teaching and research focuses on logistics and supply chain management areas. I hold a PhD in Marketing from the University of Strathclyde and my thesis explored the value (co-)creation in third-party logistics outsourcing relationships.

I have previously taught at the University of Strathclyde Business School on the Management Development Programme, and was also involved in teaching at the Department of Marketing in the same institution. Prior to my academic involvements, I had worked in the third-party logistics industry on various managerial positions in global logistics and supply chain operations, business development and consulting. I have earned two master’s degrees and a bachelor’s degree - as well as my researched doctoral thesis - which are in the logistics and supply chain management related fields too. I am also a member (MILT) of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport.
