SANTA BARBARA, Calif., March 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- QAD Inc. (QADA) (QADB), a leading provider of flexible, cloud-based enterprise software and services for global manufacturing companies, today announced that Senior Marketing Manager, Consumer, Food and Beverage Markets Stephen Dombroski has been named to the 2019 Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain.
The Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain recognizes influential individuals in the food and beverage industry whose achievements, hard work, and vision have shaped and attained milestones in safety, efficiency, productivity and innovation through the global food supply chain. From early pioneers and entrepreneurs to nonconformist thinkers and executive standouts, this award aims to honor these leaders and their contributions to the food and beverage industry.
"It is an honor to be recognized by Food Logistics as a rock star of the supply chain," Dombroski said. "I have spent the better part of my career focused on this area of business. When you work in the area of supply chains and supply chain planning, particularly in the Food & Beverage industry, you are participating in the study of a science, not just a job. The concepts, processes, and philosophies of supply chain constantly evolve, grow and change, and this allows us to continue to learn. To be a part of this industry and assist in the study and evolution of the supply chain is a privilege."
Dombroski has spent most of his career helping manufacturing companies optimize their operations, balance their supply chains and implement processes, procedures and systems to enable them to become effective enterprises. He has worked in a number of manufacturing industries, but his primary focus has been in the Food & Beverage and Consumer Products industries. He has extensive experience in supply chain and operations planning and is frequently consulted by manufacturing and consulting leaders for his opinions and advice.
"Our 2019 Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain reflects the expanding diversity that is emerging in our industry, both in terms of demographics and talent," said Director of Editorial Content Lara L. Sowinski. "The combination of experience and wisdom complemented with a new generation of professionals is resulting in a food and beverage supply chain that is in sync with consumers' demands while simultaneously adept and staying ahead of the logistical requirements."
Recipients of this year's Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain award will be profiled in the March 2019 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
