Leading B2B Publication Releases Annual List of the Supply Chain's Top Female Professionals
Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the only magazine in the supply chain industry covering the entire global supply chain that focuses on ROI, professional development and change management, celebrates its 20-Year Anniversary with the introduction of a new award designed specifically for women leaders in the supply chain industry.
The Women in Supply Chain award honors female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship and examples set a foundation for women in all levels of a company's supply chain network.
"We received over 200 entries for this new award, entries that were submitted from a combination of men and women. This proves that our industry needed an award like this, especially in conjunction with Supply & Demand Chain Executive's 20-year anniversary," says Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. "According to Gartner's 2020 Women in Supply Chain Survey, 17% of chief supply chain officers are now women - a 6% increase compared to 2019. This award resembles females supporting other female leaders; men supporting their female counterparts. It resembles the future. It represents growth, evolution, and community. And that future shows that it's a great time to be a part of the supply chain industry. So congratulations to these top female leaders. I look forward to seeing what else you do to grow the supply chain industry."
Victoria Ma, Manager and Global Lead of the LLamasoft Center of Excellence at Miebach Consulting, is one of the winners of this award.
"I am honored and humbled to be named one of Supply & Demand Chain Executive's Women in Supply Chain," remarked Ms. Ma. "The diverse and inclusive nature of Miebach Consulting and the clients we work with are a major contributing factor in my success and professional growth. I strongly believe that having women of cultural minorities in the industry is an advantage for supply chains. We bring new and creative perspectives to the industry's hardest challenges."
Nick Banich, partner at Miebach Consulting, commented, “The level of trust our clients place in Victoria, her teams, and her recommendations speaks to her expertise, commitment, and drive. The supply chain industry as well as the consulting industry as a whole are vastly under-represented when it comes to female leaders, and we will all benefit with more individuals such as Victoria are not only participating in our organizations, but driving them forward.”
