SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Three executives from SafeSourcing, Inc., a leading eProcurement company offering a complete Procure to Pay suite of applications, have been recognized as "Pros to Know" by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. Ronald D. Southard, Chief Executive Officer, Mark A. Davis, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, and Heather Powell, Manager of the Center of Excellence Team were named to the annual list published in the March issue.
Honoring the supply chain’s best and brightest, the “Pros to Know” awards recognize individuals from service providers, software firms, and consultancies who helped their supply chain clients and the supply chain community prepare to meet industry challenges.
"The number of issues that can present themselves in one's business truly run the gamut--from a dysfunctional product component found within a manufacturer's tier three level of the supply chain to clarifying a business's procurement strategy for reduced costs," said Barry Hochfelder, Editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "If there are those present in the industry who are working to overcome such issues and grow the global supply chain at the same time, they should get the recognition they deserve for their achievements."
Mark Davis, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of SafeSourcing states, “What we saw in 2013 was a sweeping movement in categories that have been traditionally blocked to custom sourcing companies like ours. Logistics, IT, and Service-related departments all showed an increase in activity to have assistance running their sourcing projects. In fact, we will release two modules this year geared specifically toward logistics and supporting their daily shipment needs. Service is at the core of what we do but being able to customize our set of tools to meet our customer’s needs is also of critical importance.”
