Margaret Tedlie

Smart one, she is. When you meet Margaret, you can tell that she was the smartest kid in college – studious, bookish, and a bit of an introvert. But she’s taken the theory that she learned in school and applied it to the real world, with dozens and dozens of successful applications. She also has a strong work ethic and incredible discipline. Our clients appreciate that. She’s a bulldog who can dig out the facts, get to the bottom of the “real” problem, understand how all the parts fit together and develop a complete solution. We call her the supply chain guru’s guru. She knows supply chain better than most resident doctors know anatomy–really, really well.
