Fajardo Acknowledged as Supply Chain Leader Based on Accomplishments, Mentorship and Management Impact 

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. – Sept. 18, 2023 – Epson’s Jeny Fajardo, senior manager of distribution, has been named one of the winners of this year’s Women in Supply Chain Award. The award honors female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship and examples set a foundation for women in all levels of a company’s supply chain network.

“Jeny is a true talent in the world of supply chain operations and a great asset to Epson – a fearless, selfless and customer centric leader,” said Mauricio Villaveces, vice president distribution operations, Epson America, Inc. “Jeny boasts an impressive track record in her career and her unwavering commitment in preparing her team, ensuring their readiness for elevated roles and adapting seamlessly to evolving customer needs.”

Fajardo is a leader and influential figure in the supply chain industry. Her innovative strategies and dedication to inclusivity at Epson have impacted its supply chain management. With a strong commitment to mentorship and empowerment, Fajardo inspires other women to excel and lead in various roles across the supply chain spectrum and her legacy serves as a testament to the power of determination and forward-thinking leadership.

The award is presented by Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global cold food supply chain, and Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the only publication covering the entire global supply chain. While the supply chain industry is excelling at incorporating more women in the supply chain, gender diversity continues to top of mind for many of today’s supply chains. The Women in Supply Chain award was introduced four years ago to honor the female supply chain leaders and executives who stand out in their field.

“Receiving over 400 submissions, this year marked the highest number of applications not only for this award, but for all of our awards. What’s more, 118 of those applications were submitted by male counterparts, nominating their boss, co-worker or associate,” says Marina Mayer, editor in chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “While there’s still more work to be done, what we’re doing is working. From truck drivers to CEOs, what these winners are doing matters to the future of all supply chains.”

“Women have been making a significant impact in supply chain management, contributing to the growth and innovation of the supply chain industry. As more women join the supply chain workforce, they bring diverse perspectives that can help address complex supply chain problems and improve global supply chain operations. It is important that we empower, recognize and elevate these achievements through initiatives like the Women in Supply Chain Award, as seen through the overwhelming response. Congratulations to all the winners, those who nominated others and the bravery of those who nominated themselves,” said Sarah Barnes-Humphrey, founder of Let’s Talk Supply Chain podcast and Blended Pledge project, both exclusive sponsors of the Women in Supply Chain award.
