Everstream Analytics Executives Named 2024 Rock Stars of the Supply Chain
Everstream Analytics, the global supply chain predictive insights and risk analytics company, today announced that Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global cold food supply chain, has named Chief Meteorologist Jon Davis, Chief Science Officer Mark Russo, and Director of Data Science Heather Kosztowny, 2024 Rock Stars of the Supply Chain.
"Supply chain rock stars are the backbone of the cold food chain. The words used to describe many of this year's winners range from collaborative, passionate, innovative and forward-thinking to inspired, driven and dependable," says Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "New this year, we broke the award down into four distinct categories: Top Warehousing Stars; Top Shippers; Rising Stars; and Lifetime Achievement. These winners continue to go above and beyond to improve food safety, enhance efficiency and disrupt supply chain disruptions."
Jon Davis and Mark Russo have been honored in the Lifetime Achievement category, which recognizes leaders who have made outstanding contributions to the supply chain and logistics space for more than 10 years.
With more than 35 years of experience, Jon Davis is widely considered one of the foremost experts on the impactof weather and climate on global commodities. This year, Jon Davis has provided analysis that applies weather and climate information specifically to the supply chain industry to mitigate as much risk to companies as possible. These insights are particularly critical in the food supply chain due to complex shipments that are temperature and time sensitive. Notably, Jon helped a major food manufacturer protect all soup shipments from freezing over a three-year period.
Mark ensures the integrity, accuracy and optimal efficiency of Everstream's weather data by delivering unparalleled meteorological and climate insights. Over the past 12 months, Mark instituted an innovative internal tracking dashboard for critical shipping waterways, which has become a key resource of the company's Applied Meteorology, Climate, and Intelligence Solutions teams. Extending beyond organizational borders, Mark has served as a weather and climate expert at four industry seminars over the past year, ranging from transportation technology to dairy and agriculture risk management.
Heather Kosztowny has been honored in the Rising Star category, for her achievements, hard work and vision that have shaped the supply chain network. Over the past 12 months, Heather Kosztowny lead the design and development of a new logistics product, Everstream Connect, whose logistics mapping capabilities create the only solution capable of predicting and mitigating risk while uncovering optimization opportunities from procurement through logistics and all stages of planning and execution. Heather often publishes educational content on carbon emissions, calculations, meaningful insights and how to use them to help clients move forward on their journey to build more sustainable supply chains.
"The Food Logistics Rockstars of the Supply Chain award celebrates the industry's trailblazers, individuals who have left an enduring mark on supply chain innovation," said Jim Hayden, Chief Data Scientist at Everstream.
