Webinar recording ‘Supply Chain Leadership & Top 28 Supply Chain Executives Europe’


According to the executives surveyed by Supply Chain Media, the megatrend of sustainability and resource scarcity will have a greater long-term impact than digitalization. The online survey about future leadership was conducted as part of the preparations for the annual Top 28 Supply Chain Executives in Europe ranking.

At the end of 2020, according to 33 European supply chain executives surveyed by Supply Chain Media, digitalization was the most important megatrend affecting their businesses in the long term, with sustainability a distant second. Since then, however, the war in Ukraine has drastically changed the world from a political and military perspective, and therefore also from a business and supply chain perspective.

For this year’s edition, Supply Chain Media, KPMG Advisory and Inspired-Search scanned the top European executives and compiled a longlist of 65 supply chain executives residing and leading in Europe. All these executives have either global responsibility or responsibility within the European or EMEA regions. The methodology for the Top 28 is based on analysis of published company data and financial reports, in combination with peer voting and an executive survey for determining their responsibility, span of control and impact within their organizations. The ranking is based on: Financial Results (30%), Personal Responsibility (30%), Personal Visibility (20%), and Peer Voting (20%).

In this interactive webinar Martijn Lofvers (Supply Chain Media) discussed the current and future supply chain leadership with Johan Smits (KPMG), Edwin Tuyn and Oskar Verkamman (both Inspired-Search).
