Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the executive's user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, is pleased to announce the 17th annual listing of Pros to Know in the supply chain industry.

The annual award recognizes Provider Pros and Practitioner Pros, including teams. The Provider Pros to Know is a listing of individuals from a software firm or service provider, consultancy or academia who helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet the significant challenges in the year ahead. This year's list includes nearly 200 qualified Pros to Know.

The Practitioner Pros to Know is a listing of exceptional corporate executives at manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises who are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies' supply chains for the significant challenges in the year ahead.

This year's Practitioner Pros to Know list also includes recognition of three supply chain teams.

Supply & Demand Chain Executive congratulates the 2017 Pros to Know recipients for their achievements,” said Ronnie Garrett, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Their accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage the supply chain for competitive advantage. Their efforts in developing the tools, processes and a knowledge base for supply chain transformation, as well as in promoting new approaches to supply chain enablement, earned these individuals a rightful place in this year's Pros to Know.”

The March issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive will feature more detail on many of these honorees, including the name of the Pro of the Year. Here are this year’s winners.
