Leading business magazine presents annual listing of top supply and demand chain industry professionals recognizing DiCentral executives for the fourth consecutive year.

Houston, Texas - February 26, 2015 - DiCentral Inc., a leading innovator in supply chain management solutions and B2B integration, today announced that Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine (S&DCE) has named DiCentral CEO Thuy Mai and Senior Vice President of Global Business Development Peter Edlund as 2015 Supply & Demand Chain Executive Pros to Know.

"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. "Our Pros to Know listing highlights many of these outstanding executives and their accomplishments, and it offers a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage Supply Chain for competitive advantage."

Supply & Demand Chain Executive recognizes not only Provider Pros, but also individual Practitioner Pros to Know. The Provider Pros to Know is a listing of individuals from a software firm or service provider, consultancy or academia who have helped their Supply Chain clients or the Supply Chain community at large prepare to meet the significant challenges in the year ahead. This year's list includes more than 200 Provider Pros to Know.

The 28 Practitioner Pros to Know is a listing of exceptional corporate executives at manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises who are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies' supply chains for the significant challenges in the year ahead. This year's Practitioner Pros to Know list also includes recognition of three Supply Chain teams.

"It's an incredible honor for DiCentral to be recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive for the fourth consecutive year as one of the publication's elite group of recognized professionals," said Mai. "DiCentral congratulates the other companies and executives being honored as we continue to provide the industry-leading service our clients have come to expect and enjoy."

Edlund adds, "DiCentral has always been focused on exceeding the expectations of its clients. To receive this award as a result of that client-centric approach and delivery is truly flattering and we look to only increase upon our market momentum and commitment to excellent client service."
