William "Skip" Grenoble, executive director of the Center for Supply Chain Research at the Penn State Smeal College of Business, has been selected as one of Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine's 2011 Pros to Know.

Grenoble is included in the magazine's Provider Pros to Know list, a listing of individuals from provider firms, consultancies and academia who have helped clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet the significant challenges in the year ahead.

Grenoble joined Smeal in 1987 after an extensive career in wholesale distribution. His research interests include customer service, benchmarking, the use of information technology in supply chain management, logistics complexity, and the role of transportation policy on logistics performance.

He is a member of the Council of Logistics Management, the Warehousing Education and Research Council, the Distribution Committee of the National Defense Transportation Association, and the Semiconductor Logistics Forum, where he is also an adviser. Grenoble has served on the executive board of the International Customer Service Association, and on the board and the North American leadership team of the Supply Chain Council.

Grenoble holds a Ph.D. from Smeal, an M.B.A. from Columbia University, and a bachelor's degree from Princeton University.

Supply & Demand Chain Executive issued a call for Pros to Know nominations in November 2010. Beginning in January, the magazine's editorial selection committee culled through more than 350 submissions to find the applicants that best fit the criteria. Nominees had to address key challenges facing supply chain practitioners in 2011 and what they're doing to help overcome them. They also had to speak to how supply chains can better align with firms' broader corporate strategy.

The full listing of the 2011 Pros to Know is available in the February/March 2011 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and online at SDCExec.com/2011Prostoknow.
