Inteva Products Addresses the Role of Supply Chain Management at the Automotive Logistics Global 2011 Conference

TROY, Mich., Aug. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Mary Foster, Vice President of Supply Chain Management at Inteva Products, will join other industry leaders at the Automotive Logistics Global 2011 Conference to discuss strategic management of the global supply chain. Foster is a featured speaker at the Tracks of Your Tiers session scheduled for Wednesday, September 28, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. EDT, at The Henry in Dearborn, Michigan.

"Given the unprecedented experiences of the last several years, we are now measuring things we never used to think of – geographic concentration, political climates and macro-economic risks. There is a new level of attention to the global footprint of tier suppliers," said Foster. "Effective supply chain management is a combination of both proactive and reactive strategies. We have learned how important it is to have the speed and flexibility in our systems to react to those things for which we cannot prepare.  I look forward to presenting how Inteva Products addresses these challenges and engaging with industry leaders to discuss the global strategy for managing a far reaching and interconnected network of suppliers."

With a track record of 12 successful years, and conferences in each of the major markets, Automotive Logistics magazine delivers events which have become must-attend meeting places for executives seeking to update their understanding of the market, stay abreast of competitors' activities and anticipate customers' demands.
