Rob McKeel, CEO of FORTNA, Named 2023 Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine

ATLANTA (March 22, 2023) – FORTNA, a leading automation and software company for the full logistics value chain, today announced that the CEO of FORTNA, Rob McKeel, has been named to the prestigious Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine’s 2023 Pros to Know listing.

The annual Pros to Know award recognizes outstanding executives whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage the supply chain for competitive advantage. This is the 11th year that a FORTNA employee has received this prestigious award.

“This year’s list is filled with supply chain professionals whose achievements and success stories have helped move the needle in the supply chain. They promote safety, sustainability and workforce development. They work toward helping heal the supply chain. They’re actually in the supply chain,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “We received close to 400 nominations this year, the highest number of nominations ever for this award. It’s proof that today’s supply chain professionals are doing great things for the supply chain. They embody what a true leader should be. And, without their initiatives, programs and collaborative efforts, today’s supply chains would be in worse shape.”

“Global supply chains are incredibly complex, and experienced partners are needed who care as deeply about customers’ business outcomes as they do,” says Rob McKeel, CEO of FORTNA. “Investing critical capital in new supply chain capabilities are high-stakes decisions, and our data-driven, collaborative approach utilizing our optimization framework is proven to deliver results. This recognition is further testament to the FORTNA team and their passion for solving customers’ most challenging problems.”
