Fowler, Valderrama and Wilson named to annual list of supply chain experts

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (March 1, 2017). LLamasoft, a global leader in supply chain optimization software and solutions, is proud to announce that three members of the team have been named to Supply and Demand Chain Executive’s list of ‘Pros to Know’ for 2017.

Allison Fowler is director of solution design at LLamasoft and holds experience as both a provider and a practitioner, beginning her career at Pepsico. At LLamasoft, Fowler serves as a key link in the sales cycle and holds deep technical expertise of the LLamasoft products. Fowler is also an essential member of the LLamasoft Benefit Benchmark Survey (BBX) research team, which is now in its third year and collects data points from customers after they’ve completed projects to gain a holistic view of the value they derive from supply chain modeling technology.

Carlos Valderrama is the vice president of global customer success at LLamasoft. Starting his career at LLamasoft as the managing director of the company’s Latin American operations, Valderrama opened up the market to where it stands today as a key revenue driver. In late 2015, Valderrama moved over to lead the LLamasoft customer success initiative, supporting customers in their efforts to build a three-year roadmap for developing their supply chain design capability and ensures customers are happy with the solutions and the value they drive for their respective organizations.

Jim Wilson is the director of product management at LLamasoft and holds 20 years of experience in the supply chain and logistics industry. Wilson is leading a cross-functional team including Product Development, Customer Success and Applied Research to prepare for the company’s move into the supply chain planning space with launch of its new planning platform later this year. This customizable and flexible apps-based approach to supply chain planning will be the first solution of its kind of the market.

“I’m proud to have three members of the LLamasoft team recognized in this year’s list of Pros to Know,” said CEO and President of LLamasoft, Don Hicks. “The depth of talent at LLamasoft is vast and this year’s recipients are demonstrative of many of the best qualities of the LLamasoft team, and certainly reflect the variety of areas in which our offerings are strong.”

LLamasoft has had leaders named to the annual list every year since 2006, highlighting the benefits of supply chain modeling technology and best practices to large businesses worldwide.
