John Manners-Bell, has won the ACA-Bruel Special Mention prize with his book, Supply Chain Risk. The book took the honours for its contribution to the development of leading new concepts and methods in purchasing and supply chain.

The prize is organised by the Association of Purchasing and Supply Chain of HEC School of Management in Paris. John Manners-Bell was there in person to collect his award.

Manners-Bell said, “It was a great honour to receive such a prestigious award. My book highlights the challenges global corporations face in trying to balance the need for lean supply chains with the inherent vulnerability which this can create. Building resilience has become a competitive advantage, maintaining agility whilst ensuring supply chains are robust enough to deal with threats from any source at any time.”
