 Award Recognizes Executives Who Are Helping Shape the Supply Chain Industry

ASHEVILLE, NC – February 27, 2017 – IronDirect®, an American company that offers a convenient online platform (IronDirect.com) for construction equipment buyers to access the machines, attachments, parts and services needed to reduce ownership costs and maximize uptime, is pleased to announce that Supply & Demand Chain Executive has named Tim Frank, president of IronDirect, one of its 2017 Pros to Know in the supply chain industry. This award recognizes Mr. Frank for his role as one of the visionaries behind the creation of IronDirect’s innovative new business model.

Supply & Demand Chain Executive congratulates the 2017 Supply & Demand Chain Executive Pros to Know recipients,” says Ronnie Garrett, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Their efforts in developing the tools, processes and a knowledge base for supply chain transformation, as well as in promoting new approaches to supply chain enablement, earned these individuals a rightful place in this year's Pros to Know listing.”

“Being selected as a 2017 Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive is a huge honor,” said Tim Frank, president of IronDirect. “One of the key challenges facing supply chains today is how to unlock greater value – this is especially true in the construction equipment industry where the sales model has traditionally been very limited and closed. IronDirect is disrupting the current status quo by offering buyers a more direct and transparent way to manage the entire lifecycle of their fleet, not just make an initial purchase. Our simple and easy-to-use e-commerce marketplace provides customers with technology, tools and services that add value at every stage in the ownership lifecycle, resulting in a truly smarter, better way to do business.”

The Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives, and manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises, that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate. This year the editors of Supply & Demand Chain Executive received more than 300 entries.
