Supply and Demand Chain Executive Pros to Know

We’re passionately committed to helping our clients realize the full potential of their distribution operations and are delighted that Supply & Demand Chain Executive has recognized the expertise and success of these Commonwealth team members

Commonwealth Supply Chain Advisors, a leading supply chain consulting firm, today announced that executives Dan Brunner, John Neblett and Ian Hobkirk have been recognized as Pros to Know for 2015 by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine.

The Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate. This year’s list includes the 2015 Provider Pros to Know—individuals from software firms and service providers, consultancies or academia, who have helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet these challenges—and Practitioner Pros, who do the same within their own companies.

“We’re passionately committed to helping our clients realize the full potential of their distribution operations and are delighted that Supply & Demand Chain Executive has recognized the expertise and success of these team members,” said Commonwealth Director of Business Development Jennifer Thomas.

The Commonwealth leaders recognized as Pros to Know collectively have over 75 years of experience serving their clients and the supply chain community at large.
