Named Customer Of The Year
Earlier this month, Cessna took two
awards at the first annual Aerospace & Defense Supply Chain
Excellence Awards dinner sponsored by the Supplier Excellence
Alliance. Cessna was named Customer of the Year, and Cessna Supply
Management Vice President Don Beverlin won the Richard Hall Award
for Leadership Excellence.
"We are very pleased to have Don and our entire supply chain
management organization recognized by the Alliance as an industry
leader," said Ron Alberti, senior vice president, Integrated Supply
Chain. "These awards are indicative of the importance we place
throughout Textron on building strong supplier relationships."
As Customer of the Year, Cessna was recognized for superior
supplier development, supplier retention, and its ability to form
alliances with suppliers to establish a competitive advantage. In
winning the leadership award, Beverlin was cited for his
communications skills, ethics and industry leadership.
Cessna and Textron are members of SEA, an industry partnership
of leading aerospace and defense prime contractors, tier-one
sub-contractors and suppliers. Its mission is to accelerate supply
chain performance, expand supply chain capabilities, and to help
build and encourage collaboration among suppliers, resulting in
integrated supply chain solutions.
