Attendees will learn how to better evaluate their organizations to mitigate supply chain risk.

McDaniel leads the Avnet Velocity team’s efforts in designing and implementing solutions for Avnet and its customers. His expertise includes supply chain engineering, supply chain finance, warehouse management and worldwide transportation logistics.
