SGS Maine Pointe’s Dorothea Grimes-Farrow Wins Two Top Leadership Awards
Noted supply chain consultant is recognized as Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s Women in Supply Chain winner, and Consulting Magazine’s Women Leaders in Consulting for 2022
Boston, Mass., September 22, 2022 -- Global supply chain and operations implementation consulting firm, SGS Maine Pointe, a member of the SGS Group, is pleased to announce that Senior Consultant Dorothea Grimes-Farrow has received two high-profile awards this month. Grimes-Farrow was named by Supply & Demand Chain Executive as a recipient for its 2022 Women in Supply Chain award, and also by Consulting Magazine as one of their Women Leaders in Consulting for 2022 in the category of Excellence in Client Service.
“We are proud to acknowledge our own women supply chain leaders at SGS Maine Pointe, and it came as no surprise that Dorothea received not just one, but two separate recognitions this month for her outstanding work and status as a supply chain and consulting leader,” said Jeff Staub, SGS Maine Pointe’s CEO. “Her accomplishments are often acknowledged by our clients as well, who appreciate the lasting value she brings to their organizations. Dorothea embodies the very ethos of SGS Maine Pointe, as well as the accomplishments and advancement of women in our field.”
As an honoree from Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 2022 Women in Supply Chain award program, Grimes-Farrow is recognized alongside other female supply chain leaders who have illustrated excellence in helping clients meet many of the unique challenges of today’s supply chain. The Women Leaders in Consulting Award from Consulting Magazine honors Grimes-Farrow for her deep knowledge and consulting expertise, strong results with measurable return on investment to clients, and achieving outstanding results in complex and challenging circumstances.
“It is such an honor to receive these two high profile awards,” said Grimes-Farrow. “These recognitions also reflect on the mentorship and guidance of SGS-Maine Pointe, and the firm’s outstanding framework for success. The Total Value Optimization™ methodology has proven an essential component in helping me deliver consistently excellent results for my clients, and help guide them through even the most challenging of supply chain circumstances.”
The Supply & Demand Chain Executive 3rd Annual Women in Supply Chain Award includes many supply chain leaders and executives from across the supply chain community. Her acknowledgement from Consulting Magazine’s Women Leaders in Consulting for 2022 in the category of Excellence in Client Service will include an awards gala to be held in New York City on November 3, and a thought leadership program called “The Consulting Collective.”
Grimes-Farrow is distinguished by her supply chain operations expertise, strong business acumen, product development knowledge and effective change management, and her ability to deliver sustainable results. In one example, she was able to take an organization which had been late to market 50 percent of the time, to seeing a 200% improvement in time-to-market while releasing cash for new product investments. In another example of client success, she took an organization which suffered from siloed functional operations and continuous churn in purchasing, logistics, and delivery schedules, and overcame challenges to exercise consensus decision making, achieve forecast and supply balance, and increased the reliability of demand forecasts.
“Much of my success, beyond being driven by my expertise and background, comes from authentically listening to my clients and colleagues,” said Grimes-Farrow. “Experience, filtered through the lens of a female leader, can also offer new perspectives. And finally, data is always your friend when analyzing complex problems and finding solutions. I am pleased to be acknowledged with these awards, and look forward to continuing to serve the needs of my clients at SGS Maine Pointe.”
