The CSCMP (Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals) is celebrating 50 years of providing members and their organizations with the education, research, connections, and professional growth needed to achieve ongoing success in the supply chain consulting industry.
In addition to attending educational sessions, round tables, a supply chain exchange, and networking opportunities, Nemeth will have the opportunity to hear a keynote presentation from Felipe Calderón, the former President of Mexico on the topic of “Expansion, Innovation, and Transformation: What It Takes to Lead.” Mr. Calderon will expand on the understanding that the supply chain profession is critical to organizations around the world, as well as to countries and their economies. The scheduled Major Session Speaker is Peter Carlsson, Tesla Motors’ Vice President of Supply Chain, who will speak on the topic of, “Building a Complex Supply Chain from the Ground Up.”
“I’m excited about all of it,” said Nemeth. “The CSCMP organization is a great networking opportunity. My team from Allied Distribution and I enjoy meeting new customers and rekindling our business relationships each year. I’m looking forward to hearing the keynote speaker Felipe Calderón, as well as learning new strategies that will benefit our nationwide network and improve the services that we offer to our customers.”
