Tysons, Va. – The Pennsylvania State University announced the selection of Linda Bixby, PhD, LMI’s director of academic programs, to the 2021-2022 Center for Supply Chain Research (CSCR) Advisory Board. Additional industry representation on this board comes from Cisco, Google Cloud, IBM Corporation, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, The Hershey Company, SDI, and Walmart.

“Dr. Bixby plays an integral role in advancing the mission of the LMI Research Institute to spur innovation and further groundbreaking research, including within logistics and supply chain, to support our U.S. government customers. We are pleased to have Dr. Bixby represent LMI on this prestigious academic advisory board,” stated Sharon Hays, PhD, LMI’s chief technology officer.

Penn State’s CSCR is one of the nation’s leading institutions dedicated to research and education in supply chain management.

Supply chains exist to deliver quality products securely, reliably, and efficiently to customers but have been challenged during the COVID-19 pandemic. “LMI has had an excellent relationship with the Penn State CSCR Advisory Board for many years, most recently working together to build coalitions during the COVID-19 response. Dr. Bixby’s insights into how academic institutions can best partner with industry and government will be invaluable,” said Pat Tamburrino, LMI’s vice president of logistics.
