OVID-19 has changed many facets of life recently, and the global supply chain is not an exemption — no matter how minimal the disruption is.
“There is an incredible amount of complexity at a time when supply chains have been put under great stress and strain,” said Jim Lorre, chairman and CEO of Stanley Black & Decker. “We're very pleased that we've been able to come through this pandemic so far with minimum disruption in the supply chain.”
Stanley Black & Decker has close to 60,000 employees in approximately 60 countries around the world, with approximately half of them in manufacturing and distribution roles.
President Judy Olian and Matthew O'Connor, dean of the School of Business, spoke with Loree and Ynon Kreiz, chairman and CEO of Mattel, on managing corporations during and post COVID-19. This November 12 discussion was part of the university’s presidential speaker series, The Way Forward.
