Insider has released its 2022 list of 100 people who are transforming business across different sectors. Keep reading to see the 10 leaders making waves in supply chain.
Dave Clark, CEO of FlexportFlexport’s incoming CEO Dave Clark.
When Dave Clark left his job as the CEO of global consumers at Amazon to run the logistics startup Flexport this summer, he caused quite a stir. Flexport is the senior classman of logistics startups, with $2.3 million capital raised and a valuation of $8 billion. Clark’s job is to supercharge its growth.
“What draws me to supply-chain issues is the complexity; these are hard problems to solve, with thousands of moving parts that don’t always connect or communicate with one another,” Clark told Insider.
Jasmine Crowe, CEO and Founder of GoodrJasmine Crowe
For years, Jasmine Crowe has been helping people experiencing food insecurity “dine with dignity.” She started a decade ago with a free restaurant run out of her Atlanta apartment — and her own pocket — and has since grown that seed of an idea into a startup.
“Every time Goodr puts food in front of someone, you want it to last them for seven to 10 days. And that’s what these grocery stores do,” Crowe said. “To see kids as young as 11 saying, ‘Mom, I’ll bring home dinner tonight,’ that has changed the game.”
Eddie Jaisaree, Vice President of Commercial Sales at Eviation
As head of commercial sales for Eviation, Jaisaree is working to get small airlines to replace their fuel-powered piston-and-turbine aircraft with the Alice. The all-electric passenger plane, Eviation’s debut product, made its first test flight in September 2022 and is designed to fly just over 500 miles on a single charge and cruise at nearly 300 mph.
“It is a new value proposition,” he said, citing the plane’s low operating costs and clean-sheet design that allowed for things like a brand-new avionics system.
