The Team at CDC Software
Steve Halula, Director of Customer Strategic Solutions, CDC Software
Anne van de Heetkamp, Director, Global Trade Compliance, CDC Software
Throughout his career, Halula initiated several strategies to solve supply chain problems including the design of one of the earliest flow-through retail systems; working with a company who provided a standardized WMS system; RFID; advanced mechanization (pick-to-light, put-to-light, AS/RS, carousels); and performed return on investment (ROI) studies and best practice analyses. Van de Heetkamp’s Global Trade Management experience in trade consultancy, global trade software and global trade product development with both public and venture-backed technology companies spans multiple decades, countries and continents. For 2012, we expect to see continued changes to regulation and increased government audits. These, combined with the market need for more supply chain visibility, will continue to be a factor in our solution development.
Matt Gersper, President, Global Data Mining, CiGDM | Ron Lackey, President, CUSTOMS Info, CiGDM
Gersper helps businesses optimize global trade applications and streamline global trade automation. Under his leadership, Global Data Mining (GDM) developed a better way to work in helping multi-national companies increase the informational value of trade data and the productivity of global trade staff to reduce operating costs, improve customs compliance, accelerate supply chain speed and maximize the return on investment of this corporate function. Lackey understands the importance of strategic decisions made with data and how they affect the supply chain. He has helped clients integrate duty and tax data into their supply chain to better ensure that the product the customer receives is the price at which they made their buying decision.
Jason Evans, Senior Vice President, Corporate Development, Sales and Marketing, Corbus LLC
The supply chain is no different from other segments of the company in that strategies need to be followed and it often takes thinking outside of the box to make it work. Evans plans for clients’ future states by listening to their goals and adapts his solution for success. His mentality begins with the immediate savings and efficiency but he works within the long term creating renewed partnerships past the original engagement.

Thuy Q Mai, Chairman and CEO, DiCentral
The supply chain’s main function is to support and enable the company’s overall business strategy through automating and streamlining current business processes, as well as driving down operational costs. When customer demand unexpectedly spikes, companies must re-evaluate the state of their operations in order to satisfy customer demand and remain profitable. Mai recognized this dilemma and responded by focusing on supply chain efficiency, helping customers to manage growth in a time of economic uncertainty through EDI enablement.
