He also made the list in 2019.
The Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain recognizes influential individuals in the food and beverage industry whose achievements, hard work, and vision have shaped and attained milestones in safety, efficiency, productivity and innovation through the global food supply chain. From early pioneers and entrepreneurs to non-conformist thinkers and executive standouts, this award aims to honor these leaders and their contributions to the food and beverage industry.
"Food Logistics is a trusted source of information for the Food & Beverage industry and to be recognized by them as a Rock Star of the Supply Chain for the second time is an incredible honor," said Dombroski. "There are many disruptors in the Consumer Products and Food and Beverage industries today and they all impact the performance of the supply chain and a company's business processes. To recognize and leverage these disruptors, manufacturers need comprehensive yet adaptive ERP and supply chain solutions. I enjoy helping QAD provide our customers these next generation solutions to help optimize their supply chains and succeed in a rapidly changing world."
Dombroski has spent most of his 30-year career helping manufacturing companies optimize their operations, balance their supply chains and implement processes, procedures and systems. He has worked in several manufacturing industries, but his primary focus has been in the Food & Beverage and Consumer Products industries. He has extensive experience in supply chain and operations planning and is frequently consulted by manufacturing and consulting leaders for his opinions and advice.
"The 2020 Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain exhibits the true rock stars of the industry, those that go the extra mile, so to speak, to ensure their company's supply chains are being operated in an efficient, safe and transparent manner," said Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics. "These professionals are a true example as to why today's food and beverage supply chains are in position to meet tomorrow's consumers' demands, and why today's youth should consider the supply chain and logistics industry as a possible path of employment."
