Diversified Welcomes New Leader of Global Supply Chain Operations
During a tumultuous time for supply chain worldwide, industry expert to drive operational excellence for business continuity and innovation for the future.
KENILWORTH, NJ—Diversified, a leading global technology solutions provider, announces the addition of Robert “Bobby” Bernard to its leadership team as Senior Vice President of Global Supply Chain. Reporting to Chief Operating Officer, Johan Claassen, Bobby will be accountable for Diversified’s strategic sourcing and procurement operations, fleet management and the company’s preferred vendor partner program and supplier relationships worldwide.
“Diversified by nature is an engineering-centric, client-obsessed organization. Despite the current supply chain crisis, we are thinking outside the box and doing absolutely everything we can to deliver projects on schedule and on budget,” commented Claassen. “The addition of Bobby’s experience and skillset couldn’t have come at a better time, and I am confident he will help us improve our efforts while strategically planning for our post-pandemic future.”
Prior to joining Diversified, Bobby spent many years in executive leadership roles across procurement, supply chain, product development, services and quality for both Dell and Lenovo, having started his career at IBM. In these roles, not only has he managed the day to day of supply chain operations but also, digitally transformed supply chain practices and developed industry-leading strategies to drive operational excellence and innovation as well as ensure positive client experiences.
“I was drawn to Diversified by their innovative approach to the industry and the broad reach that both their diverse portfolio of solutions and geographic footprint provide,” adds Bernard. “Supply chain operations are such a critical component of meeting client needs every single day, and I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and help enhance what this already stellar team has accomplished.”
As Claassen mentions, the addition of Bernard to the Diversified team is perhaps more important right now than ever before. With supply chain disruptions now faced worldwide, and no real timeline for when they’re expected to end, the expertise of a supply chain industry veteran will make all the difference for Diversified’s global enterprise clientele and helping them meet business objectives.
