Achievement underscores Kushmaul’s expertise in global supply chain risk mitigation

Lansing, MI — November 13, 2014 – Chris Kushmaul, IDV Solutions’ Director of Supply Chain Solutions, has earned a Risk Management Education Certificate from the American Production and Inventory Control Society (APICS).

APICS is the leading professional association for supply chain and operations management, and its comprehensive Risk Management Education Certificate program demonstrates a commitment to global supply chain risk mitigation.

“Chris has spent his career managing global supply chains and researching strategies to mitigate risk,” said Ian Clemens, Chief Technology Officer for IDV Solutions. “This certification is just another testament to his deep understanding of the complex issues companies face when trying to anticipate and understand the impact of global risk events on critical deliveries and ultimately their bottom line.”

Prior to joining IDV Solutions, Chris held positions managing global logistics and transportation management for Diebold Inc., General Electric, Delphi Automotive, and a 3rd party logistics service provider. Leveraging his 14 years of supply chain industry experience with global operations, he is currently leading the development of Visual Command Center for Supply Chain, responsible for managing the product from design to customer satisfaction. This enterprise risk visualization (ERV) software visualizes risk across the routes of the supply chain, including suppliers, manufacturer and retail locations, and route nodes, as material ships through complex global networks. By visualizing risk events related to supply chains before they become threats, organizations can act quickly to mitigate or eliminate the impact of those risks.

APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) and APICS Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) designations set the industry standard.
