Prime Advantage, the leading buying consortium for midsized industrial manufacturers and food processing companies, announced that Vice President of Business Development Mike McDonald has been named to Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine’s Pro to Know list for 2014. This is the second year in a row McDonald has been named a Pro to Know by the respected trade magazine’s editorial selection committee, and the sixth year in a row that a Prime Advantage executive has made the list.
The Provider Pros to Know is a listing of individuals from a software firm or service provider, consultancy or academia, who have helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet the significant challenges in the year ahead.
“Supply Chain is increasingly recognized as a strategic differentiator for leading small, medium and large enterprises, and Supply Chain leaders have become crucial to the success of the enterprise in meeting the challenges of what truthfully has been called a turbulent economy,” said Barry Hochfelder, editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “This honor highlights those thought-leaders who are helping to shape the Supply Chain industry and advance Supply Chain as a respected discipline in the enterprise.”
Honoring the supply chain’s best and brightest, Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s “Pros to Know” include professionals proactively working to improve their business’s functions in a number of categories—including manufacturing and production output; procurement; logistics; risk mitigation strategies; sourcing; financial operations; packaging and distribution; transportation; and much more.

And we embrace the opportunity to continue reaching new markets and new companies while creating even more value for our existing Members and Endorsed Suppliers.”
