Zero100’s Co-Founder Kevin O’Marah commented “We’ve gathered voices at the frontier of operational, environmental and societal change to shape an ambitious global agenda for future supply chains and supply chain education.”

“As a part of the Z100 Board, I’m looking forward to working across industries to shape a more inclusive and sustainable future, which is our generation’s mandate,” said Ana Corrales, Google’s Chief Operating Officer for Devices & Services, “With a focus on Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) as well as overall business impact, Z100 can help construct a new future for global supply chains.”

“Both Nestle and I were honored to be asked to join such a forward-looking and influential group of leaders,” said Magdi Batato, Nestle’s EVP & Operations Head, “especially given the alignment between the Zero100 mission of Zero Percent Carbon, 100% Digital supply chains and what we’re doing in this area at Nestle. I’m excited at the impact this group can make.”

“It’s really a historic moment for the entire supply chain profession,” said Gerry Smith, CEO of The ODP Corporation, “and via the Z100 Board and wider Zero100 community we’re architecting a new education platform for leaders worldwide tasked with inventing more equitable and agile supply chains.”

Marc Engel, Unilever’s Chief Supply Chain Officer noted: “In this fast-changing world, we need to collaborate to get the best minds working together on the biggest global challenges such as climate change, nature, and social equality – I am proud to join this group of inspiring thought leaders. Unilever knows that as consumer expectations rise and customised solutions become the norm, supply chains need to be responsive, agile, and data-driven. Zero100 is an important initiative at the right time to drive learning and innovation – supporting more companies to be both sustainable and fit for the future.”

Wei Gao, Hopin’s newly appointed Chief Operating Officer, and formerly Amazon’s Global VP of Grocery Supply Chain, Product & Tech noted: “What struck me about the opportunity to join the Z100 Board was the unique mix of business, operations and technology leadership the group possesses, and the breadth of companies and industries represented.”
