Yesterday, I received the printed copy of the edition of Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine containing the article about supply chain certification. In preparing for this article, the S&DCE staff asked us to refer them to a customer of ours who could discuss the SPSM Certification for the article.

Upon receiving the printed edition, I was pleasantly surprised that our customer, Paul Sas from Palomar Pomerado Health, was on the cover! Check it out…

I’m obviously delighted that Paul gave such a positive, executive-level review of the benefits of enrolling a staff in the SPSM Certification Program. But we’re not the only ones to benefit from this coverage.

I am sure that being on the cover of, and being positioned as an expert by, a prestigious publication can only help the level of respect that Paul gets in his organization. He represented PPH quite well!

I think that this is another great example of how Next Level Purchasing can help purchasing professionals have rewarding careers. We can’t promise every student that he or she will end up on a magazine cover, but you never know…
