West Monroe Partners, a North American business and technology firm, today announced that Yves Leclerc, a managing director and leader of the firm’s supply chain practice, has been named to the advisory board of the Loyola Quinlan School of Business Supply and Value Chain Center.
The Supply and Value Chain Center (SVCC) led by John Caltagirone of the Quinlan School of Business at Loyola University Chicago is dedicated to the development of leading-edge strategies and practical solutions to problems encountered by the business community relative to the management of the end-to-end supply chain.
“I am honored to be part of this distinguished group working to improve global supply chain management and sustainability,” said Yves Leclerc, managing director at West Monroe Partners. “This group is the perfect forum to develop both innovations in the supply chain as well as develop future leaders interested in making an impact on the global and local economy.”
To serve the needs of the growing Chicago business community and beyond, the SVCC provides the common platform where industry leaders and academics can exchange ideas and advance knowledge in Global Supply Chain Management. The center takes a pragmatic approach towards advancing the understanding and practice of supply chain management: demand forecasting and management; strategic sourcing and procurement; manufacturing and operations; inventory management; distribution; and transportation management. The center builds on this knowledge to penetrate emerging areas of importance such as sustainability, risk management, demand driven supply networks, outsourcing, and reshoring.
