Named Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s
2021 Pros to Know

Prestigious award recognizes outstanding executives whose accomplishments
leverage supply chains for competitive advantage

Portland, Oregon – March 22, 2021 –Dusty Dean, founder of BITCADET, a digital consultancy that helps businesses create meaningful online sales channels, was named one of Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 2021 Pros to Know.

The award recognizes outstanding executives whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage supply chain for competitive advantage. While many companies have struggled to re-gain their footing as a result of COVID-19, this year’s Pros to Know winners stepped up to the plate to deliver innovative solutions and programs in a time of crisis and need.

These winners collaborated, optimized, developed, educated and played a critical role in the survival and success of their company amid a global pandemic,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “I am honored to recognize these individuals and teams, and extend my utmost gratitude to everyone in the supply chain industry for their time, efforts and innovations to keep our nation’s supply chains afloat.”

“We’re humbled to be a part of such an amazing group of companies – not to mention the award-winning S&DCE publication,” said Mr. Dean.

For the past decade Mr. Dean has been a strong advocate for leaders in manufacturing and all areas of supply chain. “Manufacturing represents the best of us – fueling the U.S. economy with good jobs, good pay, and a good path to a secure future for millions of Americans who deserve better,” said Mr. Dean. “That’s why it’s heartbreaking for me to watch an industry I care so deeply about, come apart for one simple reason – a failure to meet its customer’s buying expectations. What’s behind this complacency? Fear,” he added.

Today, 8 out of 10 manufacturers still depend primarily on their internal sales force to drive revenue; and less than 1 out of 5 offer a digital buying experience. This is shocking because buyers have long preferred to research, vet, and buy online. If a company doesn’t offer a seamless buying experience online, buyers will simply move on to the next company –around the corner, country, and even overseas.

Mr. Dean and his team of digital technologists understand what needs to be done to help manufacturers create the buying experiences their customers, dealers, and retailers expect. This singular focus on helping US manufacturers prosper – benefits their families, friends and communities, locally – throughout the U.S. and around the globe.
