Kuznetsova is among the supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship and examples set a foundation for women in all levels of a company’s supply chain network.

BOSTON — Sept. 20, 2022ToolsGroup, a global leader in AI-driven retail and supply chain planning and optimization software, is proud to announce that CEO Inna Kuznetsova has been selected as a recipient of the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 2022 Women in Supply Chain award.

Kuznetsova’s visionary outlook and effective leadership stem from her unique combination of technological know-how and a nuanced understanding of supply chain. Never one to be satisfied with the status quo, Inna is focused on helping companies improve the application of supply chain technology to maximize customer experience and profitability. She is data-driven and passionate about innovation in supply chain technology, and believes that strong teams focused on delivering value to the customer make strong companies. Her success as a leader both reflects and propels women’s advancement not just in supply chain, but in the professional world in general.

“I’m delighted to be recognized along with so many other impressive women leaders,” said Kuznetsova. “Many skills and perspectives are needed to lead a company and I am proud to be part of a diverse team helping companies build intelligent, dynamic supply chains anticipating changes in customer demand and responding fast to external disruption.”

The Women in Supply Chain award honors female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship and examples set a foundation for women in all levels of a company’s supply chain network. This year’s list includes individuals from software and service providers, consultancies and academia, trucking and transportation firms, professional development agencies, sourcing and procurement divisions, and more, all who have helped supply chain clients and the supply chain community at large prepare to meet many of today’s—and tomorrow’s—challenges.

“When I launched this award three years ago, I was prepared for an uphill battle,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “ I was envisioning a long road ahead in getting the supply chain industry educated enough as to why it was important to recognize women in the supply chain. But, this award, the winners and those who submitted nominations—both men and women—is a testament that supply chain organizations were already recognizing their female leaders; they just needed a better platform. This year, we received over 280 submissions. Almost 100 of those submissions came from men. I’m so proud of everyone who participated, both men and women. I’m proud to call these women mentors, role models and industry friends. I’m proud to interview them, support them and help promote their journey. And, I hope to see all of this year’s and past years’ winners at our upcoming Women in Supply Chain Forum.”
