The European Supply Chain Excellence Awards offer the happy opportunity to say thank you to an individual who has made major contribution to the theory and practice of supply chain management.
And you can now play your part in nominating someone for the Individual Contribution Award.
The award winner will be in illustrious company. The first winner of the award, which was introduced two years ago, was Lawrence Christensen of Sainsbury’s. Christensen is a pioneer of supply chain management in British food retailing. He is best known for the world-class supply chain he created at Safeway, and latterly for his work in resolving supply chain issues at Sainsbury’s.
He was followed last year by John Allan, chief financial officer of Deutsche Post World Net. Allan masterminded the Ocean/Exel merger – an audacious move in combining freight forwarding and contract logistics. Sceptics warned that it could be a disaster but the reality has proved them wrong and Allan’s lead has been followed by a number of other major companies.
So who do you think deserves recognition this year? You can submit a nomination by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
You should give the nominee’s name, title and organisation, along with a short paragraph detailing the reasons why this person deserves to win the prize.
The deadline for entries is Friday 22nd August.
Once all the nominations are in, the five most popular nominees will be shortlisted and highlighted on the Supply Chain Standard web site before the voting process begins.
It is an online poll and you will be able to vote by logging into the web site after 22nd August. The winner will be announced at the Awards Dinner on Tuesday 28th October at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
