Global B2B Trade Publication Highlights Leading Supply Chain Executives; Benadretti Named to List for Fifth Year in Succession

SYSPRO, the leading global supplier of on-premise, cloud and mobile Business ERP Software for manufacturers and distributors, announced today that Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine, an international B2B publication that provides mission-critical editorial to address the issues and challenges of the supply chain, revealed that SYSPRO USA President Joey Benadretti has been named a 2013 “Pros to Know” awards winner. Joey Benadretti’s appearance on the Pros to Know list is the fifth year in succession.

Benadretti is recognized for both his executive expertise at the helm of SYSPRO USA as well as his lobbying efforts to have the US Congress pass legislation and tax incentives to grow the US manufacturing base. “As President of SYSPRO USA and also a concerned citizen, I want to make the US Government aware of our environment, our marketplace, our needs and our future,” he said, advocating new ways of applying technology to build America’s industrial base and provide a growing base of manufacturing jobs. Benadretti is a firm believer of listening to the needs of the manufacturing sectors targeted by the SYSPRO ERP offering and developing the software solutions to fill these requirements.

Benadretti was also one of the first to see the trend to “green” environments. As a result, in 2002 SYSPRO pioneered a “green” software solution for which the company was given an award by the Governor of California.

Barry Hochfelder, Editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive, notes: “The efforts that a number of the industry’s leading executives continue to take to improve their business’s functionality and in turn, progress the global supply chain was one of the main reasons we started the ‘Pros to Know’ awards in the first place.”

Honoring the supply chain’s best and brightest, Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s “Pros to Know” include professionals proactively working to improve their business’s functions in a number of categories—including manufacturing and production output; procurement; logistics; risk mitigation strategies; sourcing; financial operations; packaging and distribution; transportation; and much more.

Now in its 13th year, the Supply & Demand Chain Executive “Pros to Know” awards recognize both ends of the supply chain. This includes honoring the “providers,” which includes individuals from software firms, service providers, consultancies or academia who helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community prepare to meet industry challenges. This also includes honoring the “practitioners,” e.g., those supply chain executives who demonstrated leadership by managing risk in the supply chain; provided competitive advantage; and delivered value to the bottom line.

Supply & Demand Chain Executive issued a call for entries in Q4 of 2012. Beginning in January 2013, the publication’s editorial selection committee reviewed close to 400 entries to find the applicants that best fit the criteria.
