Jane founded purple link in 2015, recognizing there’s a better way to obtain value and achieve results. Clients discover innovative ways to identify waste and risk that leak dollars from the supply chain and drain the bottom line. Through collaboration with stakeholders and suppliers, purple link’s tools and processes reduce cost and risk and sustain successes year-over-year.
After earning a degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Missouri Jane obtained her MBA from San Diego State. Passionate about Lean & Six Sigma, she holds green belt certification from the University of Michigan and earned Certified Professional Supply Manager (CPSM) and Certified Professional in Supplier Diversity (CPSD) accreditation from the Institute of Supply Management, and is a certified instructor for both programs.
In addition to running her business, she is an adjunct professor teaching Operations Management and Supply Chain Strategies at California State University Northridge and serves on the advisory board for California State Long Beach’s Operations and Supply Chain Management program. She is a co-founder of the So-Cal SCRM Council focused on Supply Chain Risk Management. She is a sought-after speaker, writes articles and conducts workshops on a variety of supply chain topics. Her first book is due late 2020.
