The latest 2018 Salary Survey results found that 2 percent of the total population of supply chain professionals are in their 20s (the same percentage as in 2017). The gender breakdown of the millennials recognized in this year's 30 Under 30 program was 18 men and 12 women.
Interestingly, while 60 percent of the group planned a career in supply chain, 40 percent did not, indicating that the field is still wide open to attracting the best and the brightest, whether they see themselves as "supply chain people" or not.
Every year, the 30 Under 30 program designates one "megawatt star," and for this year that honor goes to Charlotte de Brabandt, a 30-year old category associate with Johnson & Johnson, based in Zurich, Switzerland. She has already served in an international procurement management program with Volkswagen and built a procurement department from scratch with Porsche Design. She is now part of J&J's capital, construction and facilities services global procurement team for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
