“It’s easy to ignore the supply chain cost structure and cost drivers when economic conditions are on the upswing. However, a suboptimal supply chain always impacts the bottom line,” said Andy Sealock, partner, Pace Harmon.
Vienna, VA (PRWEB) May 19, 2010
Earning recognition for the third time for its role in driving clients’ supply chain innovations, Pace Harmon, an outsourcing advisory firm, today announced its inclusion in the 2010 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 list. This year’s award focused on providers’ roles in helping companies prepare their supply chains for post-recessionary growth.
“It’s easy to ignore the supply chain cost structure and cost drivers when economic conditions are on the upswing. However, a suboptimal supply chain always impacts the bottom line and it is not a problem that a quick fix can resolve,” said Andy Sealock, partner, Pace Harmon. ”For example, enterprises must be able to adjust quickly to changing market demands, so we caution clients to be wary of vendor contracts that include term or volume commitments as they limit flexibility.”
In addition to Pace Harmon’s inclusion in the 2010 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100, Sealock recently earned the 2010 Supply & Demand Chain Executive Pros to Know distinction for helping companies innovate and develop competitive advantage through optimized supply chains. Now in its ninth year, the annual Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 celebrates leading providers of supply chain services and technologies that help their clients achieve supply chain excellence. Recipients will be featured in the May/June 2010 issue of the publication.
“With this year’s Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100, we highlight a broad range of supply chain solution and service providers that are helping to position their customers for the ‘New Normal’ economic environment,” said Andrew K. Reese, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Our goal with this year's '100,' as in the past, is to highlight a broad range of solutions and services targeted at a variety of industries, addressing the needs of companies of varying sizes, and assisting in the transformation of a diverse mix of the functions that make up the supply chain.”
Pace Harmon’s clients include Fortune 500 and select high growth middle-market companies spanning industries such as Telecommunications, Health Care, Financial Services, Manufacturing, Technology, and Energy. For more information about Pace Harmon, please visit http://www.paceharmon.com.
