international provider of supply chain planning solutions for the
world's foremost companies, announces that president and co-founder,
Jeff Karrenbauer, has been named a 2013 Provider Pros to Know for the

strategies for complex supply chains that maximize profits and lower

"Economic volatility, green goals, and too lean supply chains are key
challenges for businesses in 2013," said Dr. Jeff Karrenbauer,
president of INSIGHT, Inc. "With INSIGHT software tools, companies

"Our annual list of Provider Pros to Know highlights the many
thought-leaders who are helping to shape the supply chain industry
and advance supply chain as a respected discipline in the
enterprise," said Barry Hochfelder, editor of Supply & Demand Chain
Executive. "Their efforts in developing the tools, processes and
knowledge base necessary for supply chain transformation, and in
promoting new approaches to supply chain enablement, have earned them
a place on this year's Provider Pros listing." 
Dr. Karrenbauer believes that continual improvement in the quality of
supply chain decisions, including frequent re-optimization with
market changes, is key to success for supply chain leaders. Many
industries today, struggle with their supply chains because of excess
inventories, collapsing demand, bankrupt suppliers, fluctuating fuel
prices, environmental mandates, etc. Companies need tools that enable
continuous, long range supply chain planning from which they can
derive significant value and reduce the risk of making costly errors. 
Dr. Jeff Karrenbauer is a 35-year veteran of the supply chain and
logistics industry and has been instrumental in evangelizing new
technology and solutions, including adding marketing decisions into
supply chain strategic analysis for profit maximization, analyzing
supply chains for vulnerabilities, and green supply chain design. He
was the first in the industry to add supply chain vulnerability
analysis into his solution and the first to incorporate the marketing
mix into supply chain plans. He earned his B.B.A. in marketing from
the University of Notre Dame and his Ph.D. in business logistics from
The Ohio State University. He is a regular guest lecturer in the
