Mr. Albanese recently shared his views with Hunt Scanlon Media on the state of recruiting in the sector his firm serves. “We are seeing a talent shortage of qualified supply chain professionals at all management levels, said Mr. Albanese. “This is being driven by the digital age which has substantially impacted consumer buying habits – including an increase in reverse logistics.”
“The industry is lacking technically qualified individuals with strong analytics and systems knowledge to keep up with the digital transformation the supply chain industry is facing as a whole,” he said. “This is similar to the need for qualified software engineers we saw 15 years ago as a result of the growing needs within the technology space.”
