Chicago, IL—February 24, 2017—We are proud to announce that Coyote Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder Jeff Silver has been named to the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 2017 Pros to Know Awards. The Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives and manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate.
Silver has been named to the list of Provider Pros to Know—individuals from software firms and service providers who have helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet these challenges.
“Supply chain strategy and policy have to be at the heart of our discussions,” says Silver, “it is the mechanism that truly drives the long term efficiencies and make real tangible impact in organizations. To be recognized for this honor as a four-time Pros to Know recipient is incredibly meaningful.”
In 2006, when Silver co-founded Coyote with chief people officer, Marianne Silver, two things were certain: Coyote had to be a great business and to be a great business, Coyote had to solve important problems. Armed with industry experience and advanced education, Silver embarked on a mission to change the logistics and transportation industry. In the ten years since its founding, Coyote has done just that. Silver’s accolades include ITA CityLIGHTS CEO of the Year, Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in the Midwest category, and Chief Executive’s Mid-Market CEO of the Year in the Overall Excellence category.
