Raleigh, NC (Vocus) March 5, 2010
Valerie Bonebrake, Senior Vice President of Global Supply Chain Services at Tompkins Associates, has been named one of this year’s “Provider Pros to Know in the Supply Chain Industry” by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine.
The award honors top industry executives for their exceptional leadership and knowledge in providing guidance to their clients. This year, the magazine emphasizes the recognition of executives who helped clients succeed and gain competitive advantage during the economic downturn of 2009.
Andrew K. Reese, editor of the magazine, notes that this year’s recipients provide their clients with that extra edge needed to deliver value to the bottom line. "These executives serve as role models for other supply chain practitioners looking to bring their own organizations through these turbulent times," Reese says.
Bonebrake adds that assisting clients with their post-recession, Great Comeback goals has been a very rewarding experience. “Listening to clients to clearly understand their goals, developing the best strategy and implementing solutions, and following through with strategic leadership are all keys to success,” she says.
With more than 25 years of industry experience in global logistics services, Bonebrake’s expertise includes global business strategy development, mergers and acquisitions, distribution and transportation management, global trade, and logistics outsourcing.
Before joining Tompkins Associates, Bonebrake was the Executive Vice President of YRC Logistics. Previously, Bonebrake led Ryder’s business unit to unprecedented global growth as Vice President of Electronics and High Tech. She holds a master’s degree in International Logistics from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
