Ingram Micro Commerce & Lifecycle Services today announced that Lisa Flynn, director, New Zealand, has been recognized in Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s annual Women in Supply Chain Award. The award honors female supply chain leaders whose accomplishments, mentorship and examples set a foundation for women in all levels of a company’s supply chain network.
Lisa joined Ingram Micro Commerce & Lifecycle Services in 2016, bringing more than a decade of senior management, continuous improvement and innovation experience to the organization. Notably, Lisa and her team have developed a new solution that combines advanced lifecycle planning and supply chain intelligence to help customers meet complex supply chain planning requirements while also enabling operational teams to adapt to changing demands, disruptions and evolving business priorities. The solution demonstrates Ingram Micro’s ability to provide its customers with leading supply chain planning services by leveraging best-in-class systems, strong integrations and agile processes to forecast demand and scale operations accordingly.
“Lisa is an excellent example of the tremendous talent Ingram Micro has across our global organization. Our associates are dedicated to supporting ambitious and digitally-driven supply chain transformations, and our flexible processes allow adaptations to occur quickly in response to changing business environments and market demands — a capability that has been critical throughout the pandemic,” said Glen Sutton, senior vice president, Ingram Micro. “Assessing data from multiple sources allows us to create one view of the supply chain, and Lisa was a key driver in developing this capability. We are proud to see her receive this well-deserved recognition.”
“Demand forecasts combined with historical knowledge, market insights and customer behavioral trends all contribute to a strong supply chain strategy,” said Flynn. “Diversity of thought — in both data analysis and the interpretation of information gathered — results in a rich foundation of knowledge. Women bring different questions, perspectives, a collaborative mindset and strong decision-making skills to the executive table, all of which can improve an organization and its bottom line. The research is clear — diversity is smart business. I thank Supply & Demand Chain Executive for this award and look forward to continuing to help Ingram Micro innovate and lead.”
Throughout the course of her career, Lisa has worked in many industries and is a proponent of adding and supporting female talent in the supply chain and technology space. She is passionate about nurturing future female leaders, showing young women there are pathways into these industries and helping them navigate their way into these worlds. Ingram Micro New Zealand is leading the way, not only within its own organization, but also through collaborations with other companies to highlight the broad range of opportunities for women in the technology sector.
