Parnaby Recognized for Building the First Business-Social SaaS Platform to Manage Risk and Compliance across Complex Trading Networks
GAITHERSBURG, MD — February 14, 2013 — GXS, a leading provider of B2B integration services, today announced its Vice President of Extended Enterprise Solutions, Nick Parnaby, has been named a 2013 “Pro to Know” by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. Now in its 13th year, the Supply & Demand Chain Executive “Pros to Know” awards recognize both ends of the supply chain, the providers and the practitioners, who demonstrated leadership by managing risk in the supply chain, provided competitive advantage and delivered value to the bottom line.
In his role, Nick is responsible for B2B SaaS solutions and subject matter expertise across GXS’s services portfolio. Prior to GXS, Nick was the Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of RollStream, the world’s first business-social SaaS platform for procurement and supply chain executives to manage risk and enforce compliance across complex trading networks. A game changer for the supply chain world, RollStream was acquired by GXS on March 30, 2011, adding a powerful social supply chain element to the world’s largest B2B integration cloud.
“It’s not always initially clear as to how broad the scale of the supply chain and its challenges really is. If there are those present in the industry who are working to overcome such issues and grow the global supply chain at the same time, they should get the recognition they deserve for their achievements,” said Barry Hochfelder, Editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The efforts that a number of the industry’s leading executives continue to take to improve their business’s functionality and in turn, progress the global supply chain—this was one of the main reasons we started the ‘Pros to Know’ awards in the first place.”
“It’s an honor to be recognized on this year’s ‘Pros to Know’ list,” said Nick Parnaby, vice president of Extended Enterprise Solutions at GXS. “B2B integration and governance of trading partner compliance and risk is a critical aspect of global supply chain and reputation management. This award reflects not just my personal commitment but also GXS’s continued focus in making supply chain integration a strategic driver of success within the enterprise.”
Supply & Demand Chain Executive issued a call for entries in Q4 of 2012. Beginning in January 2013, the publication’s editorial selection committee reviewed close to 400 entries to find the applicants that best fit the criteria. The full list of 2013 “Pros to Know” awards winners will appear in the March 2013 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine and be available on www.sdcexec.com.
