“Heidi has been in the executive search industry since 1998, and leads the growing supply chain practice for ON Partners,” said Tim Conti, co-president at ON Partners.  “She is not only an asset to the company itself, but to the clients she serves, and the communities that she belongs to.  Heidi recently sponsored the Annual BPOC Private Equity Conference and has been featured in the Supply & Demand Chain Executive publication where she shared her insights on the history of women in supply chain roles and discussed possibilities for the future of supply chain recruitment.  She is passionate about the industry that she is in, and it shows in the work she delivers daily.”

Over 400 submissions were received this year for the award, which was the highest number of applications thus far, and for all the Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive awards offered.  The prestigious recognition honors female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship, and examples set a foundation for women at all levels of a company’s supply chain network.

“It’s always an honor and privilege to be recognized by your industry peers,” said Hoffman.  “This award specifically is a testament to the incredible strides that women are making in the supply chain functions and the broader industry.  We’re breaking barriers and proving that we have what it takes to excel and succeed, but there’s still work to be done.  We need more women in this field, and I am determined to support and empower them every step of the way.”

Committed to helping to build more diverse organizations, Heidi actively listens to her community leaders and executive influencers to better understand what actions they are taking, where the challenges are occurring, and how they have progressed in their DEI journey.  Over the past three years as a result of her dedication, over 40% of ON Partners’ placements have resulted in diverse candidates.
