ALPHARETTA, GA – ECIA said it is renaming and expanding the mission of the Supply Chain Council. The Supply Chain Council’s global scope of challenges now includes IT security/testing and customer experience.
“The leadership of the newly reorganized Global Industry Practices Council (GIPC) will oversee the group of volunteers that work on behalf of the industry to develop best practices and guidelines that address inefficiencies within the global authorized channel today and in the future,” said Victor Meijers, senior vice president. “This will be accomplished through issue-specific Subject Matter Expert (SME) groups headed by ECIA members who have knowledge and expertise in that area.”
SME group members will be recruited from within and outside the ECIA member community to identify and tackle issues on an ad hoc basis.
“The goal will be to enable the council to be more nimble and responsive to the global authorized channel challenges of the industry,” said Meijers. “The wider scope of the expanded council will make it possible for ECIA to take a leadership role in being the global champion for the authorized channel and really make a difference in solving industry challenges.”
