MANASSAS, VA--(Marketwire - February 7, 2011) - INSIGHT, Inc., a top international provider of supply chain planning solutions for the world's foremost companies, announces that president Jeff Karrenbauer has been named a Provider Pro to Know 2011 by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. This is Jeff's fourth appearance on the prestigious list.

Dr. Karrenbauer was recognized for spearheading INSIGHT's latest unprecedented efforts into corporate strategy with INSIGHT Enterprise Strategy (IES). Delivering on his vision of helping companies maximize profitability by optimizing marketing expenditures with all aspects of the supply chain, IES explicitly identifies which marketing campaigns should be implemented and which should be avoided and to which customers, channels and products they should be targeted, all in light of supply chain costs and capacities.

"Working closely with our customers and drawing on 35 years of industry experience, I believe our innovative, next generation supply chain solutions will allow companies to best align their supply chains with a broader corporate strategy that is instrumental to their financial success both now and in the future."

"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."

The Provider Pros to Know is a listing of individuals from a software firm or service provider, consultancy or academia who have helped their Supply Chain clients or the Supply Chain community at large prepare to meet the significant challenges in the year ahead. The magazine's editorial selection committee culled through more than 350 submissions to find the applicants that best fit the criteria of helping clients meet key challenges facing their supply chains in the years ahead.

The full listing of the 2011 Pros to Know will be available in the February/March 2011 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine and e-book beginning in early March and on the Supply & Demand Chain Executive Web site at
