2014 Pros to Know

With this year’s Supply & Demand Chain Executive Pros to Know, we’re honoring the best and brightest in supply chain, whether providers, practitioners or a team. With almost 400 entries, the editorial committee had a difficult time winnowing it down to around 200 men and women. One of the toughest chores we faced was selecting our Pro of the Year. Out of many worthy candidates, we selected Ryan Verbecken, senior manager of enterprise e-sourcing, The Kroger Co., in Cincinnati.
