6 River Systems co-founder and co-CEO Jerome Dubois has been named a Pro to Know by Supply and Demand Chain Executive, the executive’s user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation. The Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives, and manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises, that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate.
Supply and Demand Chain Executive named Dubois a “Provider Pro To Know.” Dubois has spent his entire career in the supply chain industry and earned his MBA in Supply Chain Management and Finance from the D’Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University. Before launching 6 River Systems, Dubois directed global sales at Kiva Systems, which was acquired by Amazon Robotics in 2012. He has a wealth of knowledge about supply chain solutions and warehouse automation, which he uses to help his clients succeed.
“Our Pros to Know listing showcases the leaders and innovators shaping the profession and making substantial impact on their companies,” says John Yuva, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “We commend this year’s recipients for their achievements in supply chain and for paving the way for the next generation of exceptional supply chain leaders. This year’s recipients embody the commitment to transformative supply chain tools and processes, earning these individuals a rightful place in this year’s Pros to Know listing.”
This year’s list includes more than 200 individuals from software firms and service providers, consultancies or academia, who helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet these challenges—and more than 40 Practitioner Pros, who do the same within their own companies.
