CHARLOTTE, N.C. – February 25, 2019 – Phillip A. “Phil” Marlowe, president and chief logistician of Acuitive Solutions, has been named a “Provider Pro to Know” by Supply and Demand Chain Executive (S&DCE) magazine, which this week published its 18th annual listing of leading practitioners and service providers in the supply chain industry.
The 2019 award marked the fourth time that Marlowe, the founder of Acuitive Solutions, was recognized by S&DCE as one of the industry’s pioneer developers of supply chain technology software and services.

“Every year we receive more submissions from outstanding supply chain leaders. It’s evidence of the growth in the supply chain profession, as well as the increasing importance of the discipline within companies,” said John Yuva, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. He added that this year the magazine received and evaluated more than 500 entries. The final “Providers” list included more than 200 individuals from software firms and service providers, consultancies or academia, as well as 40 “Practitioner Pros” who provide supply chain leadership within their companies.
Superior supply chain performance is increasingly cited as a strategic differentiator for leading small, medium and large enterprises, with innovative technology providers and practitioners providing leadership and services to help companies succeed in an ever more challenging global business environment, noted Acuitive’s Marlowe. “It’s an honor to be recognized by S&DCE as a Provider Pro to Know,” Marlowe said. “It’s really a testament to our customers, their support, and the savings and supply chain operating improvements we work together collectively to achieve,” he said.
Candidates were nominated by industry practitioners and their contributions and accomplishments reviewed by the magazine as part of the selection process.
