Today Flexe, the programmatic logistics leader, announced Supply & Demand Chain Executive selected Senior Vice President of Operations, Megan Evert, as a recipient of the 2022 Women in Supply Chain award.
The Women in Supply Chain award honors female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship and examples set a foundation for women in all levels of a company's supply chain network. This year's list includes individuals from trucking and transportation firms, software and service providers, sourcing and procurement divisions, consultancies and academia, professional development agencies, and more, all who have helped supply chain clients and the supply chain community at large prepare to meet many of today's—and tomorrow's—challenges.
“Whether launching a new program to rapidly replenish retail orders or meeting eCommerce delivery promises, the Flexe Logistics Operations team directly supports our enterprise customers and warehouse partners,” said Flexe Senior Vice President of Operations, Megan Evert. “Being included in this year's list of Women in Supply Chain alongside so many inspirational female leaders is a great honor.”
“When I launched this award three years ago, I was prepared for an uphill battle. I was envisioning a long road ahead in getting the supply chain industry educated enough as to why it was important to recognize women in the supply chain. But, this award, the winners and those who submitted nominations—both men and women—is a testament that supply chain organizations were already recognizing their female leaders; they just needed a better platform,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “This year, we received over 280 submissions. Almost 100 of those submissions came from men. I'm so proud of everyone who participated, both men and women. I'm proud to call these women mentors, role models and industry friends. I'm proud to interview them, support them and help promote their journey. And, I hope to see all of this year's and past years' winners at our upcoming Women in Supply Chain Forum.”
