Crutchfield was recognized for proactively addressing potential challenges associated with managing a global supply chain. In 2012, Crutchfield began implementing an SAP enterprise resource program, streamlined responsibilities at distribution centers, led lean manufacturing initiatives, diversified manufacturing locations, and helped publish Crocs’ first sustainability report.
“As Crocs continues its global growth, a seamless supply chain is more important than ever,” said Crutchfield. “Not only do we deliver more than 300 footwear styles to 90 countries around the world on a daily basis, but we have created a low touch supply chain that manufactures and delivers that product in the most cost-effective manner possible.”
Honoring the supply chain’s best and brightest, Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s “Pros to Know” includes professionals proactively working to improve their organization’s business functions in a number of categories—including manufacturing and production output; procurement; logistics; risk mitigation strategies; sourcing; financial operations; packaging and distribution; transportation; and much more.
“The number of issues that can present themselves in one’s business
truly run the gamut—from a dysfunctional product component found within
a manufacturer’s tier three level of the supply chain to clarifying a
business’s procurement strategy for reduced costs,” said
Now in its 13th year, the Supply & Demand Chain Executive “Pros to Know” awards recognize both ends of the supply chain. This includes honoring the “providers” -- individuals from software firms, service providers, consultancies or academia who helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community prepare to meet industry challenges. This also includes honoring the “practitioners,” -- those supply chain executives who demonstrated leadership by managing risk in the supply chain; provided competitive advantage; and delivered value to the bottom line.
