A New Organization is Launched – The Global Supply Chain Leaders Group - To Serve the Leadership Needs of Supply Chain Executives Worldwide

Santa Clara, CA, June 26, 2007 --( The Global Supply Chain Leaders Group (GSCLG) has been formed to serve the senior leaders of supply chain management in business, government, and industry on a worldwide basis. The organization is designed to respond to the unique needs of leaders who are increasingly responsible for the profitable growth and health of their respective organizations.

As supply chain management continues to expand to the executive suites and boardrooms of business and public organizations, those individuals who are designated as “chief supply chain officers,” or other similar leadership roles, have had little opportunity to interact with their peers in other organizations in order to compare, share, and learn from each other. While there are other professional organizations that provide education, association, conferences, or industry meetings, all too often these groups appeal more to middle managers and staff who are either mid-way through their careers or in beginning positions.

“Several of us who are supply chain leaders identified an unmet need in the market for senior-level association and sharing,” said Sergio Retamal, chairman of the executive board of the new organization, and a CEO himself. “Our value will be to create and deliver important services and events that are directed at the specific needs of supply chain leaders and senior executives.”

Executive board director Gene Tyndall adds, “We are forming this group not to compete with the many fine professional organizations that we all belong to, but rather to focus on the needs of leaders, to learn quickly and objectively, to make the right decisions for their business or organization in the midst of dramatic change and rapid pace, and to improve their interactions and relationships with other senior executives. We have selected an excellent team of advisory board directors, who are broad-based across industries, supply chains, and geographies who will help us create and deliver unique and valuable services for this special membership.”
