March 27, 2014 - PRLog -- Denali Group’s Susanne Wrage has been named as a 2014 Pros to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine. The prestigious honor was awarded for her global experience and commitment to procurement excellence.

Wrage spearheads Denali Sourcing Services’ Center of Excellence, where she is responsible for knowledge management, internal training, and Denali Academy – a new offering for Denali for which she is the program architect. Through Denali Academy, Susanne is helping procurement organizations transcend traditional knowledge and training, and receive the tools and techniques to become -- and remain – a more strategic partner that adds value to the enterprise year over year.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine as a 2014 Pros to Know,” said Wrage. “I strongly believe that in order to better align with its company’s broader strategy, a procurement organization needs to fully understand its stakeholders’ vision and strategy. It needs to raise its level of influence and awareness to be viewed as a valued partner who fully supports the stakeholders’ priorities. This requires better demand analysis skills, as well as “soft skills” that lead to better stakeholder engagement. Procurement’s future relies on its ability to transition away from tactical work and instead focus on becoming more strategic.”

Honoring the supply chain's best and brightest, Supply & Demand Chain Executive's "Pros to Know" include professionals proactively working to improve business functions and prepare to meet the significant challenges that lie ahead for the supply chain community.

"Supply Chain is increasingly recognized as a strategic differentiator for leading small, medium and large enterprises, and Supply Chain leaders have become crucial to the success of the enterprise in meeting the challenges of what truthfully has been called a turbulent economy,” said Barry Hochfelder, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “This honor 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."

Prior to joining Denali, Susanne has had more than 15 years of experience in procurement, market intelligence, customer service, and training. She has worked with clients in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, software, utilities and energy. Susanne’s career included her own startup, where she gained extensive training experience, as well as positions at Alcoa and Denali Intelligence. Susanne holds a dual degree in business from HTW Saarbrücken, Germany and ESC Chambéry, France, as well as a BS in Industrial Engineering from FHT Mannheim, Germany, and an MBA from Tepper Business School of Carnegie Mellon University.

The full list of 2014 “Pros to Know” awards winners is available on The expanded awards coverage and winners list will appear in the March 2014 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine and online thereafter.
