OCONOMOWOC, Wis. — Sept.19, 2022 — Andrea Nottestad, senior product manager, and Sherry Boley, director, sales & operations planning, for ORBIS® Corporation have been named the Supply & Demand Chain Executive (SDCE) 2022 Women in Supply Chain award winners. This award honors female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship, and examples set a foundation for women at all levels of a company’s supply chain network.
Nottestad is at the forefront of leading and developing reusable packaging for retail distribution, general manufacturing, and food and beverage, launching at least 20 brand-new products and optimizing dozens more to create efficiencies within her customers’ supply chains.
“I’m incredibly honored to receive this award,” Nottestad said. “During my 25-year tenure at ORBIS, I’m proud of the innovative developments we’ve made in the reusable packaging space to help our customers improve performance, drive sustainability and reduce costs.”
Like Nottestad, Boley is driven by an intense desire to drive progress — for her team, customers and ORBIS. Leading the organization’s sales and operations planning process, Boley is responsible for facilitating the collaboration between production and sales. In her more than 30 years at ORBIS, Boley has used her continuous improvement mindset to constantly push the organization forward.
“I’m flattered to be recognized alongside other women supply chain leaders with this honor,” Boley said. “But I would be remiss not to mention all those that I have learned from over the years and the team alongside me that is dedicated to improvement and growth. Together, I look forward to continuing to help our organization and customers achieve new success through innovative tools and processes to maximize the benefits of reusable packaging.”
SDCE selected Nottestad and Boley for the Women in Supply Chain award from a field of more than 280 professionals in the industry. The winners appeared in SDCE’s September issue. To view the full list of award recipients, please visit: https://s3.amazonaws.com/
