On Tuesday, we released an episode of TEKTOK with hosts Scott Luton and Karin Bursa. These two had the amazing opportunity to interview Matthew Harding SVP of Data Science & Engineering, and Ben Cubitt, SVP of Consulting and Network Services at Transplace.

For this episode of Supply Chain Now Scott and Greg had the opportunity to interview two important UPS figures: Daniel Gagnon, Vice President of Global UPS Healthcare Marketing and Strategy, and Tim Fosnough, Senior Director of UPS Global Freight Forwarding. During this conversation, UPS responses to the COVID-19 pandemic were discussed.

On Thursday, we also released another episode of the Supply Chain Buzz featuring Aaron Meredith from Verusen. Scott, Greg, and Aaron covered all the top news in supply chain, including the chip shortage and the effect it’s having on the auto industry.

On Friday’s episode of Supply Chain Now, hosts Scott and Greg are accompanied by Lora Cecere, and honor the “Great Connector,” Supply Chain pioneer, Roddy Martin.

On this week’s episode of Veteran Voices, Scott has a conversation with Marine veteran Raleigh Wilkins and US Director of Sales and Business Development for Esker, Dan Reeves. Military leadership was a topic for discussion and how time spent in a specific role doesn’t necessarily qualify a person to serve in that role.
