Message from the President of GSCLG

SergioRetamalAs President of the GSCLG, I am delighted to present this year's awards edition of the Global Supply Chain Review. This month, the GSC Review showcases the Top 25 Supply Chain Executives of 2009. These individuals have made the most significant contributions to the advancement of the supply chain industry at the same time helping their companies' bottom lines.

We received over 300 nominations worldwide so these individuals represent the best of the best of our industry. We are extremely pleased to be able to present them to you and to share a brief bio on each recipient. These individuals are heavily involved with the most demanding, complex, and flexible supply chains for some of the world's most recognized and admired companies. Clearly, we are excited to see more international faces this year and we will do our best to keep searching globally in the years to come.

We celebrate supply chain leaders with vision, passion, and care for their customers and employees. These leaders provide the value shareholders' deserve; they ensure that their customers keep moving forward while dealing with global challenges affecting the day-to-day operations.

As we said in the last edition, if we recognize great performance and leadership potential, we will promote our capacity to lead both operationally as well as at the C-level. As senior-level supply chain leaders, the Top 25 Supply Chain Executives are recognized by their peers and by the industry. We hope to see many future CEOs come from their ranks.

We honor this year's Top 25 Supply Chain Executives and look forward to honoring many more like them in the future.
