NEWBURYPORT, MA – Fronetics Strategic Advisors, a global strategic advisory firm focused on driving value in high-tech supply chains and integrated logistics, today announced the launch of Fronetics Interim Retained Management Service (FIRMS), a management as a service offering.
FIRMS is designed to provide specific executive, management, sales or operational expertise when and where an organization needs it, for exactly as long as it needs it, at a fraction of the cost and time of hiring, assimilating and assigning a full-time professional. Each member of the FIRMS team has over 20 years of industry experience and specialized expertise that organizations leverage to meet business goals. FIRMS’ professionals are available to help organizations navigate unique challenges, fill leadership voids during transitions, act as a Board Advisor or offer expertise on special projects and initiatives.
“In today’s economic uncertainty companies and management teams are challenged with expanding their business while reducing their spending,” said Frank Cavallaro, CEO and founder of Fronetics. “Our new FIRMS offering provides effective and efficient talent that helps organizations make meaningful progress in strategic initiatives without incurring a large upfront investment in time, people, or budget.”

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
