Maine Pointe Recognized by Consulting Magazine with 2018 Global Leaders in Consulting Award


Maine Pointe's CEO Steven Bowen cited by leading publication for his excellence in influence 

(Boston, Mass., November 6, 2018) â€“ Global supply chain and operations consulting firm Maine Pointe announced today that its Founder and CEO Steven Bowen has been acknowledged by Consulting Magazine in its 2018 Global Leaders in Consulting Award. Launched last year, the award underscores the global nature of the consulting business and highlights the impact the best leaders in the industry are making worldwide.  

Maine Pointe's recognition as one of Consulting Magazine's Global Leaders in Consulting comes after Maine Pointe was also named one of the publication's "Seven Small Jewels for 2018" in February. This designation highlights firms that are challenging some of the biggest players in the industry and breaking new ground, both in financial performance and in management and thought leadership.  

Maine Pointe's position as both one of the "Seven Small Jewels" and as one of Consulting Magazine's "Global Leaders in Consulting" is a direct result of the firm's highly successful track record of achieving measurable client success, as well as the firm's own rapid growth in the US and Europe.  

"Maine Pointe has come a long way in strengthening its global position with some of the largest global engagements to date launching this year," said Bowen. Most recently, Maine Pointe announced two major European wins, marking a growing presence in Europe and the firm's success in helping European clients achieve their goals and transform their global supply chains. "These major engagements mark the firm's growing momentum both inside and outside the United States. I am delighted to be recognized for this award, which recognizes our hard work and commitment to helping our clients optimize their global end-to-end supply chains to deliver the greatest value at the lowest cost to the enterprise." 

Bowen is a noted public speaker on global supply chain issues and the role tariffs play in its evolution. He has been widely published and quoted in publications including Chief Executive Magazine, Supply Chain Management Review and Forbes, and has appeared as regular expert guest on TD Ameritrade Network's Morning Trade Live show. 

Maine Pointe is a leading authority in supply chain transformation, and the firm's Total Value Optimizationâ„¢ (TVO) methodology serves as the foundational strategy for delivering measurable and sustainable success throughout the entire supply chain. TVO has been widely embraced as an industry-standard approach that goes beyond lean Six Sigma in delivering a more holistic approach along the buy-make-move-fulfill supply chain. Most recently TVO was featured prominently in research from the Global Supply Chain Institute at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville's Haslam College of Business. Bowen is also author of the book, "Total Value Optimization: Transforming Your Global Supply Chain into a Competitive Weapon." 

Maine Pointe and other winners of Consulting Magazine's award program will be featured in the January 2019 issue, with awards issued at the second Global Leaders in Consulting Awards Dinner to be held December 6, 2018 at Le Meridian Piccadilly in London.
