"Highlighting the learnings that the Provider Pros to Know have taken out of the Great Recession provides our readers with a wealth of best practices that they can apply in their own supply chains, as well as insights into how leading organizations are positioning themselves for competitive advantage in the Great Recovery ahead."

Mr. Retamal has over 20 years of professional experience in all aspects of the global supply chain. Mr. Retamal has become one of the most influential leaders in the industry. He holds a Masters degree in Change Management from Pepperdine University's Graziadio School of Business, and an MBA in International Business from California State University, Northridge.
