Chris Pickett Named 2019 ‘Pro to Know’

We are proud to announce that Coyote’s Chief Strategy Officer, Chris Pickett, was recently named to Supply & Demand Chain Executive's 2019 Pros to Know awards. The 19th annual awards recognize supply chain executives who are leading initiatives to help navigate the challenges of today’s business climate.

Chris joins several past Coyote Logistics award-winners, including last year’s winner, Jonathan Sisler, Coyote’s Chief Executive Officer.

Chris has been named a ‘Pro to Know’ due in large part to his work with our proprietary market forecasting model, the Coyote Curve®. 

Throughout his twelve years with Coyote, Chris has identified an underlying pattern—expressed as a repeating curve or cycle—to the seemingly volatile and unpredictable behavior of the U.S. truckload market.

He first published his Coyote Curve theory in the Journal of Supply Chain Management in May 2018 and since then, has presented at various industry conferences to fellow supply chain leaders.

"The data-driven foundation of the Coyote Curve market model can help shippers mitigate at least some risk and general uncertainty, and make more informed, long-term supply chain decisions that create better outcomes for their organizations,” says Chris.

“To be recognized as a Pro to Know is an honor that I share with my entire Coyote team and I am humbled by the recognition.”  

This year’s list of award winners includes individuals from software firms, service providers, consultancies and academia who are helping their supply chain clients and community at large.

"Our Pros to Know listing showcases the leaders and innovators shaping the profession and making substantial impacts on their companies,” says John Yuva, Editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “This year’s recipients embody the commitment to transformative supply chain tools and processes.”
