Executive Interview: Why Bart De Muynck Joined project44

Recently, we welcomed supply chain industry expert Bart De Muynck to the team as project44’s new Chief Industry Officer. Bart has over 30 years of experience in supply chain, most recently as a VP of Research at Gartner focusing on supply chain delivery processes and innovative technologies that impact delivery.

We sat down with Bart to get his take on the state of the industry, the top issues facing transportation and logistics leaders, and why he decided to join project44.

“The last two years have been the most tumultuous times in supply chain and especially in logistics. However, even when faced with the hardest disruptions, opportunities are created.

Having spent 30 years in supply chain, and 25 of those years in logistics, I realized that there was this incredible opportunity for me to get back into the heart of logistics in 2022. Rather than sitting on the sidelines advising companies, I felt a renewed urge to be back in the heart of the logistics battle.

I spent several years in the late 1990s and early 2000s working for tech startups and the call of exciting new tech solutions such as Supply Chain visibility has again become very loud. Customers demand visibility as it is a top priority in their organizations to combat disruptions, and innovative technology leaders like project44 are answering that call.

project44 was the best and right fit for me. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to join a company that is a global leader in its category, has an incredible pedigree of international customers, a world caliber management team, a powerful team culture that attracts the best talent, and is extremely well positioned for success.

I had a chance to dive more into the state of the industry today and why I joined project44 in this video:

I look forward to helping further drive the company forward as Chief Industry Officer and working with the project44 team to accelerate our goals.”
