This is the second year in a row Junction Solutions has been recognized for this award.
Now in its 14th year, the Supply & Demand Chain Executive “Pros to Know” awards recognize supply chain executives in manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises who are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate. This year’s list includes individuals from software firms and service providers, consultancies or academia, who have helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet these.
"Supply Chain is increasingly recognized as a strategic differentiator for leading small, medium and large enterprises, and Supply Chain leaders have become crucial to the success of the enterprise in meeting the challenges of what truthfully has been called a turbulent economy,” said Barry Hochfelder, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Our Pros to Know listing highlights many of these outstanding executives and their accomplishments, and it offers a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage Supply Chain for competitive advantage.”

In his career, he has managed nearly 100 supply chain projects and technology implementations for food and beverage manufacturers, retailers and distribution companies. He has helped develop new enterprise software applications which provide customers with total visibility into their supply chain, as well as custom shipping solutions. His project implementations have promoted change management and incorporated best practices that enabled customers to better manage growth, drive more process efficiencies, reduce costs and improve profitability.
