Leading B2B Publication Releases Annual List of the Supply Chain’s Top Female Professionals
Supply & Demand Chain Executive recognized Janet Deverso, TradeTrans operations manager, as a top women leader in the supply chain industry.
The Women in Supply Chain award honors leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship and examples set a foundation for women in all levels of a company’s supply chain network.
In her 19 years at TradeTrans Corporation, Deverso has been a key player for evolving the company into a global leader in foodservice supply chain management. Her love for her position is contagious and allows her to guide her team every day with managing the supply chain needs of some of the world’s top QSR (quick-service restaurant) brands. Deverso is committed to making trusted relationships with her clients and continues to be committed to understanding all aspects of supply chain management.
“We received over 200 entries for this new award, entries that were submitted from a combination of men and women. This proves that our industry needed an award like this, especially in conjunction with Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 20-year anniversary,” says Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics.
“According to Gartner’s 2020 Women in Supply Chain Survey, 17% of chief supply chain officers are now women – a 6% increase compared to 2019. This award resembles females supporting other female leaders; men supporting their female counterparts. It resembles the future. It represents growth, evolution and community. And, that future shows that it’s a great time to be a part of the supply chain industry. So, congratulations to these top female leaders. I look forward to seeing what else you do to grow the supply chain industry.”
Altogether, Supply & Demand Chain Executive received more than 200 entries for its newly launched Women in Supply Chain award.
“We are proud of Janet and the many contributions she makes to the development of her team and the growth of our organization,” said Bob Antes, Founder + CEO of TradeTrans.
