The Whitman School of Management’s H.H. Franklin Center for Supply Chain Management will host its annual Salzberg Memorial Lecture Program on Thursday, Oct. 13, 2022, from 1 to 5:30 p.m. at the Whitman School of Management (Room 007).

This year’s program will be focused on the critical role of Supply Chain Management (SCM) and how it has been recognized throughout the past few years with respect to consumer goods and disaster response.  In addition, there has been an increasing focus on Environmental Social Governance (ESG) which is highlighting the role of SCM decisions such as sourcing, production and distribution on the broader global good. This year’s Salzberg award honors both Patagonia and Dr. Jan Fransoo for their early leadership and ongoing work in the role of SCM in ESG.

Patagonia was built on a commitment to supply chain decisions that prioritize social and environmental impacts.  They were early adopters of supply chain transparency and the importance of supply chain impacts from source to sale and return. The award will be accepted by Todd Soller, vice president of Global Supply Chain.

Dr. Jan Fransoo’s current research focuses on retail distribution and channel management in developing markets and on sustainability and social responsibility in supply chains. His recent books include Reaching 50 Million Nanostores: Retail Distribution in Emerging Megacities and Sustainable Supply Chains: A Research-Based Textbook on Operations and Strategy. Dr. Fransoo is a Professor of Operations and Logistics Management at Tilburg University’s School of Economics and Management in Tilburg, the Netherlands.
