Director of Operational Excellence, Connexi Ana de Paiva

Ana de Paiva is the director of operational excellence of Connexi, a Chemonics company. She has spent the last nine years working with USAID’s global health supply chains. She was first exposed to supply chain management a decade ago during her graduate program in international development at the American University in Washington, D.C., and has never looked back. Since then, she has done everything from day-to-day project management of multi-million-dollar programs to reengineering business processes to designing a supply chain incident management platform from scratch and scaling it worldwide to recover over $3 million in funding for the U.S. government. In her current role, she combines her knowledge of Agile and Lean Six Sigma and her previous experience designing, measuring, and improving processes with her passion for supply chain management in the developing world.
