ANN ARBOR, Mich.--()--LLamasoft, Inc., the global leader in supply chain design software solutions, today announced that LLamasoft President and CEO Donald Hicks and Senior Vice President of Solutions and Global Alliances John Ames were both named 2013 “Pros to Know” by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine, an international B2B publication that provides mission-critical editorial to address the issues and challenges of the supply chain.
“I am honored to have been chosen as a 'Pros to Know' award winner”
Honoring the supply chain’s best and brightest, Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s “Pros to Know” include professionals proactively working to improve their business’s functions in a number of categories—including manufacturing and production output; procurement; logistics; risk mitigation strategies; sourcing; financial operations; packaging and distribution; transportation; and much more.
“The number of issues that can present themselves in one’s business truly run the gamut—from a dysfunctional product component found within a manufacturer’s tier three level of the supply chain to clarifying a business’s procurement strategy for reduced costs,” said Hochfelder. “It’s not always initially clear as to how broad the scale of the supply chain and its challenges really is. If there are those present in the industry who are working to overcome such issues and grow the global supply chain at the same time, they should get the recognition they deserve for their achievements.”
“I am honored to have been chosen as a 'Pros to Know' award winner,” said Donald Hicks, who has been selected for the award in the past. “I am especially happy this year that my colleague John Ames was also recognized. John has not only been instrumental in the success of our company, but is dedicated to helping our customers improve their supply chains using LLamasoft supply chain design and analysis technology.”
The full list of 2013 “Pros to Know” awards winners will be available February 14th on www.sdcexec.com. The expanded awards coverage and winners list will appear in the March 2013 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine and online thereafter.
