4 Questions with Sue:
- How do you give back to your community?
I recently joined the board of the Colten Caldwell Foundation in Arizona focused on the transformative power of compassion by giving families with disabilities or terminal conditions one-of-a-kind experiences that are awe-inspiring and deeply meaningful.
- In your view, how do supply chains save the world?
Historically, supply chains have not been on the radar for many consumers, including me before I joined Blue Yonder. COVID-19 has changed all of that. We’ve now all been impacted in one way or another by supply chain disruptions. Improving the performance of the supply chain can be lifesaving in turbulent times, which can literally save the world.
