WASHINGTON, Feb 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine grants award to APICS, ERP thought leader
IFSSenior Advisor Bill Leedale has been recognized by the Pros to Know Awards for his efforts in leadership positions in APICS and his work with users of the IFS Applications™ enterprise software suite.
In his role with IFS in North America, Leedale distinguished himself as a Provider to Know through his ongoing consulting and education work to help them apply APICS principles using enterprise resource planning (ERP) software.
The Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives in manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises who are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies' supply chains for the significant challenges of today's business climate.
Leedale's 30 years of experience leading large-scale implementation and business process reengineering engagements for global companies make him a sought-after consultant across multiple industrial sectors. Leedale holds a B.A. in Business and Economics from Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio and an M.B.A. from Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. He is an author of the current APICS body of knowledge and an author of APICS' current Lean Enterprise Workshop. His certifications include Certified Fellow in Production and Inventory Management (CFPIM), and Certification in Integrated Resource Management (CIRM).
"The longer you are involved in supply chain and manufacturing, the more you realize there is more to learn," Leedale said. "And right now, rapidly changing technologies and a focus on digital disruption across many industries mean there is even more to learn than ever before. Our customers are adopting or expanding their footprint in the internet of things (IoT), face mandates to make their supply chains more sustainable and responsive and need to recruit the next generation of talent. This is a fascinating time to be in the industry."
"Bill Leedale is one of those rare professionals who not only possesses broad knowledge and understanding, but enthusiastically shares what they know," said Dean Flitter, vice president of services for IFS in North America. "He understands our ERP and supply chain functionality very well, but also seeks to understand the constraints and business requirements of our customers and apply the software to deliver the appropriate best practices."
