2023 Trophy

The top 5 winners of the Leaders in Supply Chain Awards 2023,
besides the recognition, receive a trophy.


The 2023 trophy awards are works of art skillfully designed by the Romanian artist, Ovidiu Toader. The globe is a symbol of our interconnected supply chain world and the global impact of the supply chain leaders’ impact. Made of steel, its qualities are synonymous with supply chain leadership: strength, resilience, and the prowess to surmount challenges. This pedestal, although rough, symbolizes the zenith of a triumphant leadership journey.

We trust that the awardees will appreciate these works of art and that these trophies will serve as enduring reminders of the vital emblems they embody—resilience and a globally unified supply chain community.

About the Artist

Ovidiu Toader (born 1991 in Brașov, Romania) is interested in exploring individual and collective memory, employing various forms of recalling personal or historical experiences. In his artistic practice, he utilizes the method of inflated metal to juxtapose imagined and documented forms that refer to his journeys through the space he inhabits, his childhood home, or his studio.


For supply chain operations to run orderly, with the customer and business priorities at the center of every decision, there are the leaders and the orchestrators, also known as the superheroes of the supply chain.

The work you are doing is significant and makes a difference to the planet, teams, and communities. We are inviting you to showcase it and inspire future generations of Supply Chain Leaders.
