ISM and Thomas Honor 30 Rising Supply Chain Stars

This Year's Winners Stand Out for Cross-Border Innovations and Digital Problem-Solving

Saving more than ten million dollars, updating technology across 8,900 stores, explaining results from a 27-country region to top management, and increasing forecast accuracy with new digital tools - those are just some of the achievements of the latest winners of the Institute for Supply Management and Thomas 30 Under 30 Rising Supply Chain Stars Recognition Program. Today, the organizations announced all of the honorees, including megawatt winner Charlotte de Brabandt, a category associate with Johnson & Johnson.

“The accomplishments and talents of this group are nothing short of remarkable,” said Tom Derry, CEO of ISM. “They stand out for their international sensibility, cross-border innovations, digital problem-solving ability, and commitment to driving enterprise-wide value. These next-generation leaders are providing their organizations with a powerful competitive advantage on the worldwide stage.”

Now in its fourth year, the ISM/Thomas program honors individuals who are 30 or younger and demonstrate leadership, innovation, collaboration and other outstanding attributes—at work and through their professional associations. Intended to help bridge the talent gap in procurement and supply management, the program provides role models to Millennials seeking out exciting new career opportunities.

“The latest 30 Under 30 winners exemplify the new generation of supply chain leadership,” said Tony Uphoff, President and CEO of Thomas. “They demonstrate daily what is possible to achieve in a profession that is riding the wave of innovation and creativity.”

Working in the U.S. as well as Spain, Switzerland and Singapore, the honorees are making their mark on the manufacturing industry (with the highest concentration of winners), as well as the military/government, aerospace and defense, business services, healthcare, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals and utilities.

Charlotte de Brabandt, for example, speaks five languages and has traveled to more than 60 countries. At Johnson & Johnson, she created a market engagement program (MEP) for global energy procurement for 920 sites across three continents, and achieved final savings equivalent to one year in a three-year contract.
