Q: How long have you been working for e2open?

A: I’ve been at e2open for just over two years. 

Q: How did you get started in the supply chain industry?

A: I got started in the industry when I was in the US Army working in Range Control Ops in Colorado Springs. Logistically positioning units while on target ranges not to shoot at one another!

Q: What are three things that motivate you most in your job?

A: 1. The unpredictability of the job. Not one day is the same. And just when you think you’ve seen it all…. 2. Building new relationships with e2open colleagues and customers. 3. The beauty in learning something new every day. 

Q: What do you like the most about the culture at e2open? What do you think makes it unique?

A: I love the collaborative culture that exists here. What makes it unique is the sharing of ideas and everyone’s willingness to help. All you have to do to find help is reach out, and you’ll find it – from Coordinator to Director – setting you up for success. 

Q: What is one piece of advice you would give to a new employee at e2open?

A: Be willing to learn and teach others what you learn. Branch out. Don’t stay in your bubble. The more people you know, the more you will learn and grow!

Q: What’s your favorite thing about the city/town you currently live in?

A: My backyard in Wyoming, MI. I get to enjoy being with my family!

Q: If you could have a lifetime supply of anything, what would it be?

A: I hate to be generic, but it has to be money! That way, the wife and I could retire and travel into the sunset.

Q: What are you most passionate about outside of work?

A: Spending time with my family and, of course, the New York Yankees!

Q: If you were moving to Mars for the rest of your life and could only take three things, what would you bring?

A: I would make sure I have another ship with fuel and food for the flight back to Earth! Mars would not be for me. 

Q: What song or movie do you have on repeat?

A: Full Metal Jacket and the Christopher Nolan Batman series!

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.
