Distribution networks and supply chains are critically important and complex functions for most businesses. They are also a leading threat to enterprise value. Misstatements, unfulfilled promises, and failures of performance anywhere along the supply chain can damage consumer and investor confidence in your products, stock value, and overall corporate reputation. The effective management of distribution and supply chain risk requires a proactive approach and a keen understanding of contract, intellectual property, and insurance issues.
Fortunately, it is one of the few risk management processes that can actually create enterprise value. During a seminar to be held at Pepper Hamilton’s Pittsburgh, PA office on September 15, my partner Tom Madigan, Nir Kossovsky of Steel City Re and I will discuss strategies that original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), distributors and retailers can use with respect to contractual risks, brand/intellectual property management, management of corporate reputation, and strategies for transforming risk into a source of value.
