2008-07-15 07:30:00

Recognized as visionary with end-to-end supply chain approach

MILWAUKEE–(EMWNews)–RedPrairie Corporation, a world leading consumer driven optimization

company, announced today that Chris Hickey, senior vice president of

sales, was chosen as a supply chain industry Rainmaker by DC Velocity

magazine. The magazines editorial advisory

board selected Hickey as one of twelve Rainmakers

industry leaders who advance the practice of supply chain management.

Hickey, a six-year RedPrairie veteran, has been involved in the supply

chain industry for twelve years. His sales leadership has delivered

profits every quarter for RedPrairie. Under his sales leadership,

RedPrairie now serves eleven of the top 20 global retailers and seven of

the top ten consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies in the world.

Hickey has played a key role in RedPrairies

evolution to providing solutions that manage the supply chain from

end-to-end, enabling the optimization of people and products from

manufacturing all the way to the store shelf.

Historically the distribution center has been

primarily concerned with fulfilling orders and with trailers leaving on

time. But if you are delivering to a store and they cannot receive it

efficiently or get it out onto the shelf and to the customer in a timely

fashion, it doesnt matter how quickly it

moved through the distribution channel. Logistics professionals need to

be open-minded and look at the entire supply chain. In the retail

environment, they need to be aware of how they are sending product out

to the store. They need to prepare it, so that it can be efficiently

moved into a selling position. Our view of end-to-end takes into account

the distribution process as well as the point of final consumption,

addressing both physical movement of product and management of labor

across the entire network, said Hickey.

We are very proud of Chris for achieving the

supply chain industry Rainmaker award, said

Mike Mayoras, CEO of RedPrairie. The

strategic E2e

approach that Chris has set as a vision for our sales team enables our

customers to pull together and chase the same goal

an optimized consumer-driven approach to best manage their people and

products throughout the supply chain. And that has led to the astounding

growth that RedPrairie has experienced over the past six years that

Chris has been with us.

In addition to his work at RedPrairie, Hickey has served as a member of

several key logistics industry associations, including APICS

the Association for Operations Management, the Council of Supply Chain

Management Professionals, and the Warehousing Education and Research

Council.
