Supply & Demand Chain Executive Celebrates Influential Women in Supply Chain and Their Impact on the Industry
ATLANTA – Sept. 17, 2021 – Logility, Inc., a leader in supply chain innovation powering the sustainable and resilient enterprise, congratulates Mandy McCain, vice president of healthcare, North America, Berry Global; Katherine Storer, senior director, supply chain, Berlin Packaging; and Stephanie Francis, supply chain manager, SIOP, ChemPoint, on their recognition as Supply & Demand Chain Executive’sWomen in Supply Chain.
The Women in Supply Chain award honors female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship and examples set a foundation for women in all levels of a company’s supply chain network.
“These women are amazing in so many ways,” says Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics magazines. They’ve re-tooled, re-innovated and revamped how the world sees the supply chain and logistics industry. They’ve paved the way for future female supply chain leaders to become a part of an industry that matters. Because women in the supply chain matter. And, some of these women are young, which means they’re just getting started.”
McCain has shown impressive leadership as she has lead supply chain and customer experience at Berry Global, and now has moved into a business lead role as vice president, healthcare, North America, for the Consumer Packaging International Division. Not only has she helped improve Berry’s supply chain during one of the most challenging years – she’s also served as a role model for the supply chain industry, plastics manufacturing industry and women in general.
Storer is responsible for Berlin Packaging’s North American-based Demand Planning, Supply Planning, and Strategic Sourcing functions. Over the past year, she has been leading Berlin Packaging’s efforts to “Up Their Planning Game,” a strategy aimed at increasing the sophistication of how they service their customers, earning Berlin Packaging and Logility recognition as a 2021 Top Supply Chain Project by Supply & Demand Chain Executive. In addition to her day job, Storer also volunteers with Global Leadership Partners, where she leads webinars and mentor sessions across multiple countries to develop and equip the world’s future leaders.
Francis acts as ChemPoint’s S&OP Manager, where she manages the Supply & Demand Planning Team. Her team works with the commercial division to increase forecast accuracy, build strong supplier relationships and manage inventory at optimal levels. Francis has experienced impressive growth in her career due to her curious outlook and desire to continuously improve, and is proud to help build a presence for women in the field.
“We congratulate our customers who have been recognized as leaders in the supply chain industry, and especially in a year that has seen unprecedented disruptions and obstacles,” said Allan Dow, president, Logility. “This award celebrates the important contributions that women like Ms. McCain, Ms. Storer, and Ms. Francis are making to the supply chain industry, and we are proud to work closely with companies such as Berry Global, Berlin Packaging and ChemPoint that promote and support women in strategic leadership roles.”
