Leading Business Magazine Recognizes Top Supply and Demand Chain Professionals

Jacksonville, FL, February 29, 2012 — A ProcureAbilityTM executive has been named as 2012 Pros to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. The prestigious honor was awarded to Executive Vice President Don Dougherty for his expertise in the Procurement and Supply Chain industry.

Don Dougherty heads up ProcureAbility’s Market Intelligence, Recruiting and Talent divisions, while continuing to play an active role in the company’s Advisory practice. He helps clients design and implement custom solutions, which include: organizational, management, process, and technology components.

“It is an honor to be a recipient of the 2012 Pros to Know,” said Dougherty, who also received the award in 2009. “As the economic environment continues to improve, leading Supply Chain executives are continuously challenged to find new ways to deliver value to their organization–expanding their reach and impacting more areas of spend, while improving operational effectiveness. One of the biggest challenges Supply Chain organizations will face in the near future is talent management–attracting, motivating, and retaining top caliber talent. As the fight for top talent continues to go global, organizations that do the best job of managing their talent will have a leg up on the competition and will gain a competitive advantage.”

In that pursuit, Dougherty has led several initiatives to assess client skill sets, determine organizational and individual skill gaps, and ultimately help develop and implement strategies to maximize the skill base necessary for market competitiveness.

As a recipient of the Supply & Demand Chain Executive Pros to Know award, Dougherty was selected from a pool of over 300 nominations representing an array of public and private companies from a variety of sectors and regions. The Pros to Know award honors individuals who are leading initiatives to help prepare their Supply Chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate. All winners will be featured in the March issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive.

“Supply Chain is increasingly recognized as a strategic differentiator for leading small, medium and large enterprises, and Supply Chain leaders have become crucial to the success of the enterprise in meeting the challenges of what truthfully has been called a turbulent economy,” said Barry Hochfelder, editor 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.”

“It also 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,” Hochfelder added. “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 Provider Pros listing.”
