Ottawa, Canada, February 1, 2011 – Kinaxis, provider of the on-demand supply chain management (SCM) and sales and operations planning (S&OP) software service, RapidResponse™, today announced that Trevor Miles, director of thought leadership, has been selected by Supply and Demand Chain Executive magazine as a 2011 Provider Pro to Know. This is the sixth time that a Kinaxis representative has received this recognition.
“This honor is a testament to Trevor’s exceptional industry knowledge and his role as a champion for advanced supply chain practices,” says John Sicard, executive vice president for marketing, development and service operations for Kinaxis. “The company’s recurring representation on the Pros to Know list attests to the bench strength of the Kinaxis knowledge team and the visionary nature of the company overall.”
“Our annual list of Provider Pros to Know highlights the many thought-leaders who are helping to shape the supply chain industry and advance supply chain as a respected discipline in the enterprise,” said Barry Hochfelder, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Their efforts in developing the tools, processes and knowledge base necessary for supply chain transformation, and in promoting new approaches to supply chain enablement, have earned them a place on this year’s Provider Pros listing.”
A “Miles-Ahead” View of Supply Chain Management
Trevor has focused his Kinaxis career on seeking new market opportunities within the company’s distinctive competence and serving as an expert source to customers and prospects. Trevor has been highly influential in the company’s successful entry into the pharmaceutical and life sciences industry, as well as in the evolution of RapidResponse as a highly competitive S&OP solution.
Trevor is particularly passionate about examining advanced supply chain concepts, ranging from a unified theory of planning (persuading companies to view the planning process as a continuum across time, product and functional dimensions), to the social supply chain (how best to insert social media concepts into supply chain management), to value chain performance management (developing a multi-tier, multi-enterprise value chain coordination system).
