I am Bill Michels and I’m Chief Executive Officer of ADR North America LLC, a specialty consulting firm that focuses on smart sourcing. I travel all over the world working with global companies to transform their sourcing operations.
Before I started consulting, I held senior management positions at SCM Corporation, Smith Corona Typewriters, Durkee Famous Foods, Boise Cascade, Campbell Soup Company and Vlasic Foods.
Since then my colleagues and I at ADR North America have delivered significant changes in purchasing processes, leading clients to increased profitability, enhanced staff competence and sustainable cost improvements.
We have developed new methodologies and theories, practices and tools for the transformation of the supply chain. They work together to release incremental profitability and value to business.
A while ago I co-authored a book called “Transform Your Supply Chain.” You can also find me in “Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s” group of “Pros to Know.”
I look forward to sharing my perspectives on this SourcingGuy blog, and hope you will join my conversation.
