2024 Trophy

THE TOP 5 WINNERS OF THE LEADERS IN SUPPLY CHAIN AWARDS 2024,
BESIDES THE RECOGNITION, RECEIVE A TROPHY.

ABOUT THE TROPHY

The 2024 trophies for the Leaders in Supply Chain Awards, designed by the renowned artist Ovidiu Toader, are not just awards, but pieces of art. They are a visual representation of the theme ‘fuelling excellence’ and are inspired by the people behind successful supply chains that span the globe. These trophies are a testament to the journey of global supply chain leaders, symbolizing their relentless drive for progress and innovation. 

Crafted passionately, the trophies signify the interconnectedness and resilience required to navigate complex global supply chains. These awards symbolize the leadership’s commitment to pushing boundaries and achieving excellence in every aspect of supply chain roles. 

The choice of materials for these trophies, inox and stone, is not arbitrary. They symbolize the strength and durability that are essential for leaders in this dynamic field. These trophies are a tangible representation of the ability of supply chain leaders to overcome challenges and propel their organizations forward. They stand as a testament to the dedication and vision of these leaders, who are constantly striving for excellence, fuelling progress and innovation in the global 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.
