Workshop Keynote Speaker

Leaders are Trained, Not Born to Lead

Lt. General William “Gus” Pagonis
Vice Chairman, Genco Supply Chain Solutions

Lt. General Pagonis

Lt. General Pagonis

Few people are more qualified to talk about leadership and supply chain management than William “Gus” Pagonis. The retired three-star general won high praise from Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf for successfully masterminding logistics for the Gulf War. Pagonis was one of only four people with full knowledge of the complete battle plan for Operation Desert Storm and was charged with the difficult task of secretly moving massive numbers of allied troops and materials into the desert to overwhelm Iraqi forces.

After the war, Pagonis served in several supply chain positions, including: Head of Supply Chain for Sears Roebuck and Co. for more than ten years; Chairman for RailAmerica; and now Vice Chairman for Genco Supply Chain Solutions, one of the largest third-party logistics providers in North America.

Lt. Gen. Pagonis is widely recognized for his achievements as the chief logistician during the Gulf War, but he also established new standards for supply chain leadership in the corporate world. “I think corporate America is waking up to supply chain as the last frontier,” Pagonis said. “It’s the place where people can really maneuver to get a competitive edge.”

Lt. General William “Gus” Pagonis
Vice Chairman, Genco Supply Chain Solutions

During Tuesday’s workshop sessions, Lt. General Pagonis will also conduct a three-hour seminar focusing on how to develop effective strategies and tactics to fulfill the mission and objectives of an organization. This seminar is open to all registered Conference & Workshop attendees.
