Will future CEOs come from supply chain?

Webinar description:

UPS, McKinsey, and Spencer Stuart will debate the role of supply chain executives in steering global corporations to success.

Supply chain leaders today have become strategic players in enabling companies to stay resilient and operationally efficient in these changed markets of unplanned disruptions and inflationary pressures.
