Radhika will provide vast insight into building small businesses and the particular issues they face
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 25, 2008
Radhika Subramanian, Emcien CEO, has been appointed to the Small Business, Agriculture and Labor Advisory Council of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. The SBAL Advisory Council was formed in 1985 to facilitate communication between the Atlanta Fed and small business, farm, and labor groups in the region, providing additional insight into the issues faced by these groups in today's volatile economy.
Subramanian's company, Emcien, provides an innovative technology solution that helps manufacturing companies improve profits margins by managing their product mix across their entire supply chain. Discrete manufacturing products have proliferated due to market shifts and changing customer demands. The proliferation is causing inventory build up of parts and finished goods, reduced customer satisfaction, and revenue loss.
"Small companies are the heart of the US economy," says Subramanian, 'and Technology is the fastest moving segment of that. The US economy is one of the most powerful because of the breadth of financial instruments available to small business' to fuel their growth.'
As a small business CEO herself, Subramanian can specifically provide insights regarding interactions between small business and the large agricultural manufacturers.
"Radhika will provide vast insight into building small businesses and the particular issues they face," says Sigmund Mosley, Jr., President of Imlay Investments, Inc. 'She has a wonderful ability to communicate her insights to other businesses.'
Subramanian and Emcien have been recognized for technical innovation since 2004. Emcien recently received Phase IIb funding from the National Science Foundation and has current projects with leaders in the Automotive, Heavy Machinery, and Construction segments.
Ms. Subramanian will provide a strong contribution to the SBAL's considerations of small business, technology and manufacturing, and her knowledge, experience and confidence are continually at work changing the manufacturing industry. Says Subramanian, "The next wave of manufacturing efficiency will come from technical innovations to broaden visibility to the entire Product Mix Management structure. Emcien's mission is to lead that change."
