Mark Millar, one of Asia’s foremost speakers and a leading authority on supply chain and logistics, has been recognised by USA-based media group Supply & Demand Chain Executive (SDCE) in their sixteenth annual listing of “Pros to Know” in the supply chain industry.
The 2016 Pros to Know Awards recognise supply chain executives that are leading initiatives to help companies prepare their supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate.
Announcing the awards in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, SDCE editor Ronnie Garrett said: “Supply & Demand Chain Executive congratulates the 2016 Pros to Know recipients. The Pros to Know is a listing of exceptional executives. We commend recipients for their achievements. Their accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage the supply chain for competitive advantage.”
Commenting on the award from his office in Hong Kong, Mark said: “It’s a great privilege to be recognised by SDCE USA as one of their leading supply chain professionals. These awards reflect how companies increasingly recognise their supply chain ecosystems as strategic growth enablers, incremental revenue drivers and a source of competitive advantage. It is encouraging to see supply chain management becoming an essential topic across all spheres of business management - and a strategic agenda item in the boardroom.”
This latest recognition of Mark’s enthusiastic contribution to supply chain thought leadership follows the recent publication of his first book – Global Supply Chain Ecosystems – commissioned by leading business publisher Kogan Page of London.
The book explores the ways in which twenty-first century supply chains have evolved into worldwide, interconnected supply-and-demand networks with profound interdependencies. With the use of real-life case studies drawn directly from Mark’s experience, the book examines several critical aspects of a global supply chain ecosystem – including visibility, resilience, sustainability and collaboration – and explores the latest market trends and industry developments.
