Leading Business Magazine Awards Top Supply and Demand Chain Professionals

San Francisco, CA – February 7, 2011 – Three Denali executives have been named as 2011 Pros to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. The exclusive award was awarded to Managing Partners John Evans and Alpar Kamber, and Partner Conrad Snover.

Managing Partner John Evans’ sole focus on the needs of Supply Chain and Procurement professionals has helped him develop new Denali services to meet changing customer demand. In fact, with a 237% growth rate, Denali was recently named to the Inc. 5000 – an exclusive group of America’s fastest growing companies.

“It is an honor to be a recipient of the 2011 Pros to Know,” said Evans, who also received the prestigious award in 2009. “Today’s most successful Supply Chain executives are challenged to move beyond cost cutting. They understand that the next wave of value add will be driven by innovations that generate increased efficiencies, incremental revenue, and shareholder value.”

Evans actively collaborates with Supply Chain executives to explore and develop breakthrough innovations that can help Procurement drive even more value to the enterprise. These innovations, outlined in a series of whitepapers from Denali , are based on one-on-one interviews and group discussions with more than 50 executives from a variety of Global 1000 corporations.

Managing Partner Alpar Kamber’s commitment to increase value contributed by the Procurement organization makes him a 2011 Pro to Know. As a founder of Denali Sourcing Services, he has teamed with clients to optimize Procurement’s operational performance and strategic contribution.

“Denali Sourcing Services’ mission is to deliver ‘Sourcing Execution Excellence’ by augmenting client teams to dramatically increase efficiency, effectiveness and company-wide impact,” said Kamber. The Sourcing Execution Excellence model helps create an “on-demand” Procurement organization that delivers more value by reaching many more stakeholders throughout the enterprise, managing a significantly higher percentage of spend, dramatically increasing savings, and executing more sourcing projects.

Partner Conrad Snover and his Denali team help Procurement organizations build sustainable solutions, improve category management capabilities, and explore and implement new delivery models. “We work with clients to optimize their value contribution, enabled by market intelligence, improved internal skills, technology, and BPO offerings,” said Snover.

“Supply Chain is increasingly recognized as a strategic differentiator for leading enterprises, and Supply Chain leaders have become crucial to the success of the enterprise in meeting the challenges of the ‘New Normal’ economy,” said Andrew K. Reese, editorial director of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Our annual Practitioner Pros to Know listing highlights many of these outstanding executives and their accomplishments, and it offers a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage Supply Chain for competitive advantage.”
