Indianapolis -- — 

enVista, a leading global supply chain consulting and IT services firm, today announces Jimmy Benefield, managing partner, has been selected as a 2016 Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine.

The Pro to Know Awards recognize supply chain and manufacturing executives who exemplify the talent, knowledge and skills necessary to prepare companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges in today’s business climate. The Pros represent both providers, individuals from software firms and service providers, consultancies or academia, as well as practitioners who work internally for companies.

“With more than 30 years of experience in supply chain management, Jimmy brings a wealth of knowledge to enVista and to our clients,” said enVista President and CEO Jim Barnes. “During his time at enVista, his experience has helped countless clients save time and money through supply chain analysis, the design or redesign of facilities, logistics strategy, transportation optimization, performance management and more. Jimmy is extremely passionate about his work and is truly an expert in the supply chain field. He unequivocally deserves the Pro to Know honor.”

Benefield has provided supply chain services to leading companies in North America and South America across a wide variety of industry segments. He has authored numerous articles on supply chain topics, lectured on the subject of supply chain planning and improvement, and is a senior member of the Institute of Industrial Engineers.

“Receiving this award is a great honor,” said Benefield. “There are always evolving challenges when it comes to supply chain, and I enjoy helping enVista’s clients adapt to and excel in changing times. Omni-channel, for example, has complicated everything from inventory operations to shipping. A benefit of enVista’s consult, implement and operate model is that we are really able to develop strategies and solutions that meet companies’ unique needs in the long term. Finding and implementing these solutions and seeing the savings of time, money and resources is extremely fulfilling for me, and I look forward to generating results for even more clients in the future.”
