At this week’s Association for Supply Chain Management conference, Chemonics Executive Vice President Jamey Butcher received an award for being a leader in the supply chain industry.

On September 18, 2019, Chemonics Executive Vice President Jamey Butcher received the 2019 Award of Excellence – Supply Chain Leader from the Association for Supply Chain Management (ASCM), the global leader in supply chain learning, transformation, innovation, and leadership.

Mr. Butcher oversees Chemonics’ global health supply chain portfolio, providing technical assistance and service delivery to more than 60 countries for donors such as USAID; the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria; and UNICEF. He leads Chemonics’ efforts to implement sustainable supply chains that can be transitioned to local governments and stakeholders, improve the delivery of health commodities, and scale up innovative approaches and the use of technology in developing countries to affect lives worldwide.

Mr. Butcher accepted the award at the ASCM 2019 conference, where he also presented on Chemonics’ efforts to use technology and innovation to deliver health commodities to the last mile.

“I am so honored to receive this award. So many people have contributed to the global health supply chain that Chemonics’ supports and operates, and this award is really for all of us and those we serve around the world,” said Mr. Butcher.

The ASCM Award of Excellence – Supply Chain Leader award honors an executive who exhibits extraordinary team and organizational leadership; provides dedicated coaching, mentoring, and support of fellow professionals; and makes lasting contributions to advancing the field of supply chain.

Under Mr. Butcher’s leadership, Chemonics has forged a strategic partnership with Arizona State University to create an accredited and accessible online program in supply chain management to ensure that Chemonics’ global network of professionals has access to affordable continuous learning and development opportunities. He also drove technical and management enhancements that led to a dramatic improvement in results on the USAID Global Health and Supply Chain Program-Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) project, implemented by Chemonics and a consortium of partners. To date, GHSC-PSM has procured nearly $2 billion of health commodities to fight HIV/AIDS and malaria and provide essential products for maternal and child health and reproductive health.
