HighJump VP Named to 2017 Food Logistics’ Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain
Jackson Bilbrey recognized for development of innovative supply chain solutions for craft brewers
MINNEAPOLIS - April 18, 2017 — HighJump, a global provider of supply chain network solutions, today announces Jackson Bilbrey, vice president of product management, was honored by Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain, as one of the 2017 Food Logistics’ Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain.
Unified commerce is becoming increasingly important in the logistics industry. This is particularly true for the craft brewers market, which requires real-time visibility across an array of order sources, be it online, distributor systems, tap room POS, or events. To maintain customer satisfaction, craft brewers need a solution that streamlines this, while enabling and enhancing fulfillment and distribution operations, managing vendor relationships and controlling inventory. With more than 15 years in both logistics and craft brewing, Bilbrey made this a reality with the development and continued progression of HighJump’s Brewers’ Edge.
“Jackson’s extensive market experience and passion, combined with the help of both peers and his team at HighJump, led to a solution that improves the most critical areas of the craft beer industry,” said Ross Elliott, executive vice president and chief strategy officer at HighJump. “He has been pivotal in reaching our goal to create a truly unified commerce experience for craft brewers by constantly evolving Brewers’ Edge to meet the demands of today’s dynamic supply chain landscape.”
The Food Logistics’ Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain recognizes influential individuals in the industry whose achievements, hard work, and vision have shaped and attained milestones in safety, efficiency, productivity and innovation through the global food supply chain. From early pioneers and entrepreneurs to non-conformist thinkers and executive standouts, this award aims to honor these leaders and their contributions to the industry.
“The diversity of this year’s award winners reflects the growing complexity of the global food supply chain and the many people whose individual and collective successes are driving the industry to new heights,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director at Food Logistics.
Recipients of the 2017 Food Logistics’ Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain award were profiled in the March 2017 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
