DSSI's Oldani Named to Pros to Know List

Southfield, Michigan, February 14, 2013 -- DSSI, LLC is pleased to announce that Michael Oldani has been named to Supply & Demand Chain Executive's "Pros to Know" Awards list. Mr. Oldani leads DSSI's strategic sourcing team and is responsible for negotiating and implementing North American sourcing strategies that reduce costs and improve service levels on behalf of DSSI's customers. Most notably, this work allows an individual customer to gain the benefit of significant sourcing leverage without engaging in a cooperative purchasing organization.

Mr. Oldani's team also supports the launch of DSSI's new customers thereby transitioning sourcing and purchasing efforts from local, unmanaged transactions to national strategies involving sourcing, data management and financial settlement. Here, Oldani's team has consistently delivered double digit savings in several commodity categories including janitorial and chemicals, safety, maintenance chemicals, electrical and filtration.

"It is nice to be recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive for the accomplishments my team has achieved over the past two years," said Michael Oldani , Strategic Sourcing Director for DSSI. "We have delivered substantial cost savings opportunities for our clients through diligent work with both manufacturers and distributors. It is my expectation that we continue to advance relationships forged with quality manufacturers and distributors resulting in additional savings on behalf of our customers."

Now in its 13th year, the Supply & Demand Chain Executive "Pros to Know" awards recognize both ends of the supply chain. This includes honoring the "providers," which includes individuals from software firms, service providers, consultancies or academia who helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community prepare to meet industry challenges. This also includes honoring the "practitioners," e.g., those supply chain executives who demonstrated leadership by managing risk in the supply chain; provided competitive advantage; and delivered value to the bottom line.
