CEO Honored To Be Named A “Supply Chain Rock Star” by Food Logistics
I would like to send a ‘Big Thanks’ to the Food Logistics team, for naming me as one of the 2016 Champions: ‘Rock Stars of the Supply Chain’. ”The champions are individuals who spearhead partnerships among growers, packers, processors, retailers and logistics providers. They exemplify the best traits of leadership”, explained Food Logistics Editor Elliot Maras.
I am honored to be among this group of innovators, and rather enjoy the sound of the “Rock Star” monitor and especially pleased since this award comes on the heels of RedLine Solutions being named as one of Food Logistics “Top 100+ Software and Technology Providers” in December of 2015.
I grew up in the era of notable rock bands like Led Zeppelin and The Who, and at the time thought being a rock star would be the coolest thing ever. Being named a Rock Star of the Supply Chain is cool and probably one of the few times in my life that my name and rock star will be used in the same sentence.
Like most Rock Stars in any field, I’m no overnight success. I have been doing this for decades. In contrast to stadiums and music halls, my gigs are in fields, packing sheds and coolers. My applause comes in the form of seeing the companies we serve, and I feel that are the real rock stars. They lead the charge to modernize inefficient and outdated processes, working with many internal operational challenges, apprehension and sometimes limited applause. We are always aware of these facts when we partner with customers to define and implement any new system, helping build them a stronger, more efficient and reliable future.
We know that when the spot lights go on, and the show starts, our solutions need to provide an impressive performance that lasts, validating our customer’s faith in the RedLine team and its partners. It is this idea that drives us every day to be the best at what we do.
