Junction Solutions Recognized Again in the 2014 Pros to Know Award by Supply & Demand Chain Executive

Junction Solutions, a leading provider of vertical, market-specific on-premise and on-demand software applications and services for the food and beverage, and multi-channel retail sectors, today announced that Thad Neal, director of Consulting for Junction Solutions, was named to the 2014 Pros to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. This is the second year in a row Junction Solutions has been recognized for this award.

Now in its 14th year, the Supply & Demand Chain Executive “Pros to Know” awards recognize supply chain executives in manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises who are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate. This year’s list includes 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.

"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 of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Our Pros to Know listing highlights many of these outstanding executives and their accomplishments, and it offers a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage Supply Chain for competitive advantage.”

“It’s an honor to be recognized in the 2014 Pros to Know,” said Neal. “This award further underscores Junction Solutions’ commitment to deliver the products and services which directly address the evolving and complex supply chain challenges of the food and beverage, CPG, retail and life sciences industries and enable companies to improve their distribution operations, increase warehouse productivity, reduce waste and operational costs, and generate new revenue opportunities.”

Neal has more than 20 years of experience in IT and supply chain management. In his career, he has managed nearly 100 supply chain projects and technology implementations for food and beverage manufacturers, retailers and distribution companies. He has helped develop new enterprise software applications which provide customers with total visibility into their supply chain, as well as custom shipping solutions. His project implementations have promoted change management and incorporated best practices that enabled customers to better manage growth, drive more process efficiencies, reduce costs and improve profitability.

The full list of 2014 "Pros to Know" awards winners is available on www.sdcexec.com. The expanded awards coverage and winners list will appear in the March 2014 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine and online thereafter.
