Author of Total Value Optimization: Transforming Your Global Supply Chain Into a Competitive Weapon, Bowen’s columns and podcasts offer insights into supply chain excellence

Boston, Mass., June 18, 2019 – Global supply chain and operations consulting firm Maine Pointe announced  its CEO, Steven Bowen, has been accepted into the Forbes Business Council. Bowen joins the Council based on his deep level of experience and thought leadership, his company’s stellar track record of successfully helping companies drive EBITDA, cash and growth across the end to end supply chain, and innovative insights into how a company can transform its supply chain for competitive advantage.

Bowen is author of the book, “Total Value Optimization: Transforming Your Global Supply Chain Into A Competitive Weapon,” which presents a new look at going beyond traditional approaches to supply chain to drive growth and economic profits to the business.

“We are honored to welcome Steve Bowen into the community,” said Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils. “Our mission with Forbes Councils is to bring together proven leaders from every industry, creating a curated, social capital-driven network that helps every member grow professionally and make an even greater impact on the business world.”

As part of the Forbes Council, Bowen’s thought leadership and insights will appear regularly on through his bylined articles, podcasts and in his contributions to published Q&A panels alongside other experts. Bowen’s first column, “How CEOs Can Create Value With Supply Chain Optimization,” was published on the site in April. In this column, he discussed new challenges faced by corporations, including unpredictable tariff and trade scenarios, which have caused business leaders to take a fresh look at optimizing their supply chains. In his second column, “Six Ways To Optimize Your Supply Chain to Generate Profit,” Bowen offers specific and proven strategies for leveraging the supply chain to generate economic profit.

Also, in the first of a series of Forbes podcasts, Bowen interviews Dr. Paul Dittmann from University of Tennessee’s Haslam College of Business to cover “Redefining Supply Chain Excellence” and discuss the critical role of supply chain in managing working capital and enabling growth.

“I am honored to be welcomed into this exclusive Forbes community,” said Bowen, “and to be sharing my insights into how supply chain plays a strategic role for a company’s growth and profitability.”
