ABOUT ME

Gary Wood,

Founder

I am Gary Wood, founder, and Principal at Supply Chain Analytics. After a stint in the military and college afterward, I landed a job as an inventory clerk in a small railroad equipment manufacturer. We kept track of the inventory on paper. When the company wanted to put the inventory on our computer, I volunteered. When it was done, I became Inventory Manager.


I have implemented shop floor data collection systems, process controls, and automation. I have been a Senior Instructor providing certification training for APICS, now ASCM. Eventually, I went back to manufacturing systems implementing and training users of ERP systems.


I have six successful multi-year, multi-million-dollar ERP implementations as Supply Chain Lead to my credit. I was planning to retire when a good friend suggested I start a consulting practice. After some entrepreneurial training, I started Supply Chain Analytics in 2017.

CLIENT RELATIONSHIP
MANAGEMENT

Susan Perry

I am known as an exceptional and sophisticated strategic planner and relationship builder noted for identifying opportunities and nurturing alliances to drive policy and achieve business goals. My focus is on collaboration, team motivation, and the creative use of resources to ensure project success to enhance bottom-line revenue.

Career highlights include planning, launching, and implementing programs to establish critical partnerships and credibility to advance a $485M regional manufacturing project. I earned a Certificate of Exceptional Service from the U.S. Department of Commerce for relationship development and a high number of effective government, community, and business partnerships. Additionally, I was recognized as a top U.S. Census Bureau team leader within 10 Northeastern states, for creating coalitions, effective educational programs, and managing activities to influence, promote participation, and support the 2020 Census, our nation’s first digital Census. We transformed national messaging to meet local client needs.

The passion for client success and stakeholder engagement began with my first job after graduating college in Business Administration. I was a community relations utility consultant for a $1B power plant being constructed near my hometown in Western New York’s Niagara County. I was then recruited by a utility in the Hudson Valley to manage their community relations, which we now call Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). I am an avid follower of best practices in the expanding world of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) programs. Relevant leadership experiences in manufacturing, financial services, and real estate, has built a strong foundation for client relationship management.
