ALOM’S Hannah Kain Addresses Global Growth at Vistage 2013 International Member & Chair Conference
Hannah Kain, President and CEO of ALOM, will map out the strategies and capabilities a company needs to develop in order to succeed globally, at the 2013 Vistage International Member and Chair Conference “Think Big!” taking place in Dallas January 23-26, 2013.
As part of a series entitled “Think Growth: Taking your Business to the Next Level,” Kain will offer her perspective on a discussion of “Expanding Internationally” as the head of a global company serving Fortune 100 companies from 15 worldwide locations. A global leader in supply chain management, ALOM expertly and seamlessly conducts key business functions for its clients from manufacturing to marketing.
Kain was selected to present ALOM’s international experience after she was recognized with the Vistage International 2011 Member Leadership Award, for Collaboration. With more than 15,000 members worldwide, Vistage International provides chief executives and business leaders access to new business perspectives and innovative strategies.
Since Kain founded ALOM 16 years ago, the company has grown consistently, but has experienced particularly strong growth in the last two years due to its ability to deliver on the global needs of its clients.
“Our global networks have inspired the confidence in our Fortunate 100 clients to allow us to handle their global, mission-critical supply chain tasks,” Kain said. “This frees them up to apply their resources to innovation–and position themselves more competitively.”
These tasks might include product and service delivery, management, and oversight, all taking place in multiple markets and product lines around the globe. In addition to meeting clients’ shipping and delivery needs, ALOM provides powerful tools to track and oversee each step of their product or service trajectory.
ALOM’s Compass Client Portal provides clients with a unified view of their global businesses with a real-time dashboard and Key Performance Indicators. ALOM can quickly customize the views and reporting, and integrate the information technology systems with those of its clients’. The result is that clients can operate with leaner inventories, lower costs, more options for later product configuration, and higher service levels.
“We enable our clients to focus on two of their most important goals,” Kain says. “The first is to create valuable products and services to meet their customers’ needs. And the second is to fulfill their financial responsibilities to their employees and shareholders. By creating efficiencies across the organization and among functions, we help them do both.”
Kain was a 2012 Women’s Business Enterprise Star by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), representing the Astra Women’s Business Alliance, and a 2009 Enterprising Women of the Year. She has won the Astra 2011 Global Excellence Award and Astra 2009 Excellence in Strategic Alliances Award.
She is a Board member of the National Association of Manufacturers, on the Advisory Council of the Global Supply Chain Leaders Group, Chair of the Silicon Valley Board for the Women’s Initiative, and a Board member of Watermark.
