CARMEL, IND. (PRWEB) March 01, 2018
Blue Horseshoe Solutions, a global software and services firm, announced the addition of supply chain industry veteran Michael Thielen to the organization’s business development team. As a regional business development executive, Thielen will be responsible for expanding sales in the North Central US region which includes Nebraska, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and Colorado.
Thielen’s career is entrenched in supply chain and information technology leadership. This includes several positions of increasing responsibility at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment where he was most recently Senior Vice President, Global Operations. In Sony’s fast-moving consumer goods environment, Thielen was instrumental in creating a supply chain capable of delivering hundreds of millions of discs annually to a global retail network and maintaining logistics relationship with major outlets like Walmart and Target.
He also served as Director of the IT consulting practice at Ciber, Inc. Thielen guided agri-businesses through the selection and implementation of manufacturing, distribution and grower management systems.
“Our customers have complex logistics and distribution requirements,” explains Chris Cason, president of Blue Horseshoe. “Michael’s first-hand supply chain and IT experience will readily resonate with the industries we serve including retailers and agri-businesses. This depth of experience will help ensure our customers are getting a supply chain first approach to their cloud enterprise platform.”
Thielen will help companies transition their enterprise systems to Microsoft Dynamics 365, a cloud-based business management platform. He will also help them extend their enterprise data to optimize supply chain operations including order orchestration, transportation planning and partner collaboration.
“An optimized supply chain is critical to success,” explains Thielen. “As businesses move their enterprise systems to the cloud, I’m looking forward to showing them a supply chain first approach to streamlining business processes and extending data to better manage critical distribution and logistics functions.”
