Panjiva CEO Josh Green Named "Pro to Know" for Efforts to Evolve the Global Supply Chain With Innovative Analysis of Trade Data

Honored by Supply & Demand Chain Executive as an Industry Leader for Second Year in a Row

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 3, 2011) -  Panjiva, the leading source of objective information on global trade and overseas suppliers, today announced that its Chief Executive Officer, Josh Green, has been named a 2011 Provider Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive in its annual listing of top supply and demand chain industry professionals. A repeat winner, Green has continued to demonstrate innovation and vision with Panjiva's technology, which simplifies complex government data in a way that provides sourcing executives with useable and actionable information for identifying new sourcing regions and suppliers.

Since Panjiva's founding in 2006, Green has emerged as a definitive voice on emerging supply chain, sourcing and global trade topics. Green authors the Panjiva blog, where he provides insight on timely topics, as well as spots trends in commodity and monthly shifts in global trade. He also is a go-to source on all aspects of global sourcing, trade trends and supply chain issues and has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Reuters and leading trade press.

Among the issues Green sees as critical in 2011 are the need for sourcing executives to look beyond China as the main region to tap for the manufacturing of goods, leading them to put the "global" back in global sourcing. To enable this, earlier this week Panjiva launched its new offering, Trendspotting, a platform that sorts and organizes complicated U.S. Census data to solve the challenge senior sourcing executives face identifying top geographies in which to do business. Trendspotting facilitates this critical first step in the sourcing process and integrates with Panjiva Search to enable users to identify specific suppliers within a matter of clicks.

Supply & Demand Chain Executive's Pros to Know program, now in its 11th year, honors the industry experts who are shaping the supply chain industry and working to make it a critical part of business operations. The Provider Pros to Know represent individuals from software firms or service providers, consultancies or academia who have helped their clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet the significant challenges in the year ahead.

"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."

"I'm thrilled to be included in such a significant list of supply chain industry leaders for the second time," said Green. "Last year at this time, companies were trying to survive and ride out the Great Recession. Now, I see them again thinking more strategically, investing in technology and improving processes in order to succeed in the post recession era. It's certainly a hopeful sign for our industry."
