Inmar CLS, Inc., a provider of reverse logistics and supply chain management solutions to the consumer goods and healthcare markets, today announced that its president Mark Doughton was selected as a 2009 Provider Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine.
The Supply & Demand Chain Executive Provider Pros to Know is a listing of individuals from a software firm or service provider, consultancy, or analyst or research firm who have personally helped clients during the current economic downturn by assisting them in managing risk in the supply chain, providing competitive advantage and/or delivering value to the bottom line.
"This year's Provider Pros to Know have shown themselves to be thought-leaders in their respective supply chain segments," said Andrew K. Reese, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "Their efforts in developing the tools and processes that enable companies to weather risky economic conditions and place them in a position to surge ahead in better times have earned them a place on this year's Provider Pros listing."
Doughton has served as Inmar CLS president since 1994. Under his leadership, the company has grown significantly both organically and through acquisition. While the company initially offered a software package for returns management, today its product portfolio is diverse and includes a large North America network of licensed returns facilities, a field force that specializes in supply chain integrity studies, recall management solutions and financial logistics that manage the debit/credit scenario between trading partners.
"It is truly an honor to be named a Pro to Know, especially during such a challenging year for our clients," says Doughton. "Companies are working very hard to identify any opportunity to drive out inefficiencies that negatively impact financial performance," adding that, "It's rewarding to consult with a client and offer them opportunities that can be implemented relatively quickly and deliver significant results."
