Green, OHSupply & Demand Chain Executive, a publication covering the entire global supply chain, announced William Wappler, CEO of Surgere, as a winner of its 2021 Pros to Know award. The award recognizes outstanding executives whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage supply chain for competitive advantage.

This year’s list of winners includes individuals and teams from software and service providers, consultancies, and academia, trucking and transportation firms, professional development agencies, sourcing, and procurement divisions, and more, all who have helped supply chain clients and the supply chain community to meet many of today’s—and tomorrow’s—challenges.

“I am honored to receive this award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive,” said Wappler. “The past year has been challenging across the supply chain. Our goal was to continue to support our clients with visibility and efficiency, two variables that became more important than ever as demand throughout the market shifted. We’re proud to have reduced the impact felt by manufactures across the supply chain during this difficult time.”

“While many companies have struggled to re-gain their footing as a result of COVID-19, this year’s Pros to Know winners delivered innovative solutions and programs in a time of crisis. These winners collaborated, optimized, developed, educated and played a critical role in the survival and success of their company amid a global pandemic,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “I am honored to recognize these individuals and teams and extend my utmost gratitude to everyone in the supply chain industry for their time, efforts and innovations to keep our nation’s supply chains afloat.”
