• 2018 Supply Chain Hall of Fame

    The creation of CSCMP’s Supply Chain Hall of Fame was announced to recognize and archive the significant achievements of those who have created, innovated, and mastered the discipline of supply chain management. The Hall of Fame signifies the life-long accomplishments of those members of our industry who have truly improved the world we live in.

    But it is not only the concepts, inventions, and innovations that should be celebrated and remembered, it is also the people who took an impossible dream and made it a reality. This honor recognizes individuals that have made a significant impact on the landscape of supply chain management. Nominees must have experienced significant success in the industry, illustrated extraordinary leadership skills, and served as a role model to supply chain students, young professionals, and budding entrepreneurs.
