Why Supply Chain Management (SCM) Is An Exciting Career of Choice!

The term “supply chain” means so much more than it did 10-15 years ago, and continues to evolve. Frank will share his perspective, as a senior executive with one of the world’s leading technology and supply chain companies (rated #4 by Gartner), on why SCM is perhaps one of the most meaningful career courses a young professional could enter today.

As the scope of responsibility, required level of tech-savvy and understanding of business grow, supply chain professionals of the future will be an ever-more-complex blend of capabilities. Technology will continue to disrupt performance capability and environmental pressures compel new stewardship focus of natural resources for sustainability longer-term. And the successful SCM professional will be the one that thrives on growth, change and innovation.

Join us for insights, dynamic interaction and to honor this year’s recipients of CSCMP’s Annual academic awards.
