The Supply Chain Management Center (SCMC) of Excellence at the McCombs School of Business, the University of Texas at Austin has announced Jim Satterfield as the Executive Keynote for the 2016 SCMC Roundtable on Supply Chain, hosted this year from April 14 through 15.
Jim will discuss “Transforming Supply Chain Risk & Uncertainty into Value.” Additionally, Firestorm Principal Missan Eido will co-present with Robert Benny of SCMC, a whitepaper report entitled: “Is Your Supply Chain at Risk? A Maturity Model for Resiliency.”
“Firestorm is honored to participate in this SCMC special event.

SCMC serves as both an intellectual and human conduit between the supply chain program and the member companies.”
The Texas Supply Chain event’s theme is Supply Chain Disruptions: Are You Ready?
We know that disruptive events are commonplace. In the world of Supply Chain, it’s not a question of if a disruption will occur, but rather where and when it will happen. Climate based, geographical, geo-political, machine based or man-made disruptions will occur. This two-day event helps supply chain professionals answer the question “Are you ready to respond to and minimize the impact of a disruption in your business today?”
