Industry leading ALOM experts deliver vision for supply chain industry innovation and meeting future market demands
Fremont, CA – March 6, 2018 – ALOM, a global leader in supply chain management, has been recognized for its exceptional level of industry knowledge and expertise by Supply & Demand Chain Executive with the naming of three executives as 2018 Supply Chain Pros to Know: Hannah Kain, President and CEO; Lisa Dolan, Vice President of Supply Chain Strategy, and Brandon Marugg, Chief Technology Officer. This the fourth year for Kain, and the third year for Dolan, to receive this honor.
The SDCE Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain practitioners and providers who enable their supply chain clients and community at large to prepare to meet the significant challenges in the year ahead.
“At ALOM we continually innovate so that our clients will be positioned to successfully navigate the marketplace of the future. We are particularly proud to have our executive leaders recognized in the areas of greatest competitive advantage for our clients: supply chain strategy overseen by Lisa Dolan and technology by Brandon Marugg,” said Kain.
ALOM’s seamless use of its technology provides clients with real-time visibility and analytics that anticipate and meet changing customer demand. The quality and robustness of its technology has enabled the company to manage and scale complex programs for leading automotive, medical device, technology, and energy/utility clients.
At the same time ALOM’s forward-looking supply chain strategy enables clients to benefit from digitally connecting with customers, suppliers, service providers, and product developers. As an example, auto manufacturers can facilitate tools and parts replacement in a timely manner, generate predictive data on their use, and trigger resulting inventory replenishment actions.
As ALOM’s visionary leader, Kain enables its Fortune 500 clients to focus on the innovation that defines their brands and ensures their competitiveness. In 2017, Kain positioned the company for continued long-term growth with investments in technology, staff expertise, supplier relationships, and industry advocacy.
A vocal proponent of two-way collaborative relationships between corporate brands and their suppliers, Kain delivers bold client solutions. One outstanding example was ALOM’s opening of its new Indianapolis, IN production and fulfillment facility to enable timely and agile regional delivery. Not only did this reduce environmental impact and order delivery time, but it also resulted in record service levels, for both the client and ALOM.
Lisa Dolan, a 20-year veteran at ALOM, combines extensive manufacturing and supply chain expertise with a deep understanding of technology application. This results in her ability to engineer detailed, technology-driven solutions for accomplishing ALOM client goals. The end-to-end supply chain strategies that she designs reduce costs and improve quality levels for some of the world’s most respected corporations and government agencies.
Since 2001, Marugg has been responsible for the development and implementation of all ALOM proprietary supply chain management systems and worldwide IT infrastructure. Marugg’s visionary approach combines cutting-edge technology tools with the increasing demands of control and visibility in the supply chain. This ensures data security and seamless, real-time integration across all ALOM applications and worldwide ecommerce fulfillment implementations.
“We commend ALOM for its achievements in the supply chain and for paving the way for the next generation of exceptional supply chain leaders,” said John Yuva, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “They embody the commitment to transformative supply chain tools and processes, earning these individuals a rightful place in this year’s Pros to Know listing.”
