Matt Kelin next to Pros to Know award emblem

GRAND RAPIDS, MI —March 8, 2024 — Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the only publication covering the entire global supply chain, named Matt Klein, Kamps Sales Consultant, as one of the winners of this year’s Pros to Know award, which recognizes outstanding professionals whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage supply chain for competitive advantage. This recognition is for the Rising Stars category. The category highlights young or newer professionals (39 and under) whose achievements, hard work and vision have shaped the supply chain network. Recipients of this year’s award will be profiled in Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s March 2024 issue.

As an organization servicing supply chains across the nation, Kamps is hyper-focused on providing maximum value to our customers’ supply chains. As a Sales Consultant in the Central region, Klein works with all five of Kamps’ integrated business units to successfully execute and participate in projects that achieve this mission. Kamps’ Central region includes Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennesse. From single-site local customers to Fortune 500 organizations with a global presence, he has been able to influence, add value, and aid in the optimization of these supply chains. Klein’s knowledge and experience with our Wood Pellets business unit (Easy Heat) allows him to look at projects with a unique perspective on sustainability and help other divisions integrate a sustainable, and profitable, outlet for their wood waste.

Many of today’s supply chain pros are more than just leaders within their space; they’re innovators, decision makers, pioneers of change and growth. They’ve spent the last year (and more) creating safer, more efficient supply chains. New this year, we broke the award down into four distinct categories: Top Warehousing Stars; Top Procurement Stars; Rising Stars; and Lifetime Achievement. These winners continue to go above and beyond to overcome challenges, advance supply chain management and make the impossible, possible.
