"Together they will be invaluable in helping us to better understand the strategic decisions that have global impact across supply chain. It's an exciting time for our community as supply chain has never been more relevant to business or to society. Only with insight from, and collaboration with, the brightest thinkers and practitioners from across the world can we deliver competitive business strategies and solve some of the world's biggest challenges such as universal access to healthcare, global distribution of food and environmental sustainability."
Canevari states, "I am honoured to be joining the SCM World's Executive Advisory Board at such an exciting time for the supply chain management community. Working together we can learn and continue to push the boundaries of innovation to improve end-to-end performance across all aspects of the supply chain - regardless of industry."
