Joyce Maruniak, Advance Auto Parts
Joyce Maruniak, vice president of supply chain development, is overseeing the design and implementation of a new distribution network strategy for the automotive aftermarket retailer.  She states, “The strategy development included an evaluation of what type of service we wanted to provide, what we wanted the infrastructure to look like, what the facilities should do, and what they should look like internally. We redesigned operations within the facilities and also went through optimization and simulation modeling, looking at various business scenarios.”
