Fortna Announces Leadership and Development Rotation (LADR) Programme

Programme prepares supply chain professionals to serve clients across multiple disciplines

ATLANTA, GA (2 March 2021) – Fortna®, a leading consulting, engineering services and software company for warehousing and distribution, today announced the creation of a Leadership and Development programme aimed at accelerating the development of newly hired associates to be best equipped to assess and design innovative solutions for clients.  Participants in this one-year programme have a unique opportunity to rotate through a variety of service areas, projects and assignments, while developing core leadership skills across three tracks: Consulting, Engineering and Project Management.

“We’re committed to identifying creative and impactful ways to holistically educate our new associates and ensure they are fully prepared to leverage new processes and technologies that solve our clients’ distribution challenges,” said Bill Tyng, LADR Program Manager.  “We are proud to encourage these professionals to experience and refine multiple aspects of their chosen career path while expanding and elevating their competencies and talents to best serve our clients,” he continued.

The inaugural class of eight recent graduates kick-started the programme in February 2021 and will rotate across multiple professional service disciplines throughout the year. The Fortna LADR participants represent several esteemed engineering, logistics and business programmes at Clemson University, The Georgia Institute of Technology, The Ohio State University and The University of California Santa Barbara.  Upon graduation from the programme, the LADR associates will move into roles that fully utilise the experience they have gained throughout their rotations.
