When Brad Householder, principal, supply chain practice at PwC was last interviewed by Logistics Management, he told us that supply chain management is working its way up the command ladder in corporate America.

We last caught up with him at the Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference, where he talked a bit more about treating supply chain as a “strategic asset” for competitive advantage.

In an exclusive interview with our sister publication— Supply Chain Management Review —he expands upon that presentation.
