RALEIGH, N.C. – Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the only publication covering the entire global supply chain, has named Tompkins Solutions CEO David Latona as a winner of the 2022 Pros to Know award. The award program recognizes outstanding executives whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage supply chains for competitive advantage.
An industry veteran with more than 35 years of experience, Latona started his career in the apparel and footwear industry in Los Angeles. As CEO of Tompkins, he has led efforts on behalf of several large, multi-billion-dollar companies in the past year to analyze and structure their long-term goals for distribution across North America, implementing entirely new methodologies and attaining new levels of client service.
Latona’s wealth of expertise across all disciplines of the supply chain has helped companies in a wide range of verticals meet their distribution and client service goals. Prior to joining Tompkins, he was a partner and senior vice president of a nationwide material handling integrator, as well as co-founder and managing director of a third-party logistics operator in the Port of Los Angeles. He previously co-founded a B2B company that provides ERP systems and front office support for apparel and footwear brands.
“When I look back at past Pros to Know winners, I see a lot of individuals who accomplished a lot of great achievements. But, this year’s winners are reinventing what it means to be a supply chain professional. This year’s winners are intuitive, adaptive and so super smart, and continue to push the envelope when it comes to everything supply chain-related,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “We received over 360 nominations this year, the highest number of nominations ever for this award. It’s proof that today’s supply chain professionals are not only doing great things for the supply chain, but are also being supported by their teams, peers and partners.”
