HOUSTON, Feb. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Satellite Logistics Group (SLG), a leading supply-chain solution provider for the beverage industry, announced today that Dan Swartwood, the company's vice president of process and technology, has been named one of Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine's 2015 Pros to Know.
The annual Pros to Know Awards recognize select supply chain executives who have helped their clients, companies, or the supply chain community at large to prepare for the significant challenges in the year ahead.
"This honor 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 Pros listing."
SLG's Swartwood specializes in helping companies to improve supply chain performance by optimizing their supply chain processes. Co-author of Fix Your Supply Chain and a certified Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) instructor with the APICS Supply Chain Council, Swartwood helped pioneer the concept of using the SCOR model with Lean and Six Sigma for effective process improvement and prioritization. Through this approach, he helps customers to increase efficiency, eliminate waste, reduce cost and improve service levels.
Swartwood has guided a number of U.S. and international companies in various industries through the methodologies and has seen the results firsthand. On average, opportunities for improvement equate to two to six percent of revenue.
"In today's marketplace, it's important to scrutinize every aspect of the supply chain. It's remarkable how conducting a thorough analysis can identify relatively modest adjustments that can have a significant business impact," said Swartwood. "It's rewarding to see that a respected publication like Supply & Demand Chain Executive recognizes the value of our supply chain optimization efforts."
