The Women in Supply Chain award honors female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship and examples set a foundation for women in all levels of a company’s supply chain network. This year’s list includes individuals who have helped supply chain clients and the supply chain community at large prepare to meet many of today’s and tomorrow’s challenges.
Kaufman has an extensive, 30-year background in IT and supply chain consulting, as well as ecommerce and omnichannel strategy. Since joining enVista, Kaufman has been integral in projects including demand forecasting and analysis, inventory planning and allocation, carrier diversification, transit time optimization, and successfully keeping supply chain and transportation operations running at peak efficiency amid COVID-19-related challenges.
Welker applies her more than 25 years of supply chain, process improvement and facility design experience to help organizations optimize their warehouses and operations. In particular, Welker and her team recently completed a network analysis project which resulted in over $4 million in transportation savings for the client and increased the client’s percentage of shipments within two days from 60 percent to 95 percent.
With three enVista women recognized last year and two this year, enVista continues to prioritize hiring and developing diverse top talent in supply chain and commerce.
enVista’s CEO, Jim Barnes, said, “It is an honor to see enVista’s women leaders recognized for the incredible accomplishments and contributions they make to supply chains across the globe. Deanna and Crystal continually create value for enVista’s clients, and I am delighted to congratulate them for having their hard work and expertise recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s Women in Supply Chain Award.”
