Q: How long have you been working for e2open?

A: I have been working at e2open as of five years on November 5th! 

Q: What is your favorite part of your job? 

A: I love all aspects of my job, but I would say networking with great people is up there. I love connecting with experienced industry experts as they are so knowledgeable and passionate about their work. 

Q: Which has been more valuable in your career, education, or experience, and why?

A: Experience has been most valuable for me. I am constantly learning and developing ideas to leverage our events. Each event is unique to the vendor, with different themes, locations, and topics. Our hands-on experience allows us to be up to date with the trends. 

Q: What traits do you admire most in your coworkers and e2open leadership?

A: I admire the passion and enthusiasm of wanting to be successful within themselves and the work they produce with our events. 

Q: How has the supply chain industry changed since you started?

A: When I first started at e2open, I was not aware of the importance of having a solid supply chain management system. During my time here, Brexit was a big bump in the road regarding supply chains, but e2open’s solutions have been able to help so many businesses run successfully with our array of solutions to cater to a variety of clients. E2open is constantly developing products to make sure we are up to date with the relevant supply chain trends, like the use of AI. 

Q: What is your go-to drink or snack while working?

A: My go-to snack would be frozen grapes (green or red – not fussy 😊), and the drink of choice is a Diet Coke.  

Q: If you could trade places with anyone for a week, who would it be?

A:  I would love to experience a day in the life of Victoria Beckham. She seems to live a fun, fashionable lifestyle. 

Q: What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?

A: Always show up with a smile. A positive countenance will make people comfortable. 

Q: If you could only have one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

A: This is a hard one. I would have to go with freshly baked croissants. I could eat these all day! 

Q: What’s your current favorite TV show/movie?

A: Im obsessed with watching the Selling Sunsets Netflix series, and I can’t wait for the new season to come out this month.

Five Supply Chain Trends Shaping the Future of Sourcing, Trade, and Logistics, Pt.1

For decades, China has represented the pinnacle of global trade. As companies around the world began offshoring manufacturing to China to cut costs, the country emerged as an international export leader. However, recent trade patterns signal a changing tide in global supply chain dynamics. In 2023, Mexico became the US’s top trader, outpacing China for the first time in 20 years. The shift reflects an emerging trend called nearshoring, where companies bring production hubs closer to their main markets. Doing so helps cut supply chain costs, reduce logistical hurdles, and swiftly respond to changing market conditions and consumer demand. During the first three quarters of 2023, foreign companies invested 47 percent more in nearshoring efforts in Mexico, mostly focused on the auto sector.
