Lily Shen’s journey at Transfix has been unique, to say the least: just three days after becoming the newly appointed CEO earlier in March, she took Transfix fully remote due to COVID-19. As a tech-first company, the Transfix team was able to make a seamless transition while continuing to support their carriers on the front lines, which is no easy feat.

In this fireside chat, moderated by DC Velocity reporter Ben Ames, Lily will share her top tips for executive leaders in the supply chain who are looking to effectively help their workforce make the transition to a “New Normal”. Audience members will also learn about what they can expect to see in the future of the supply chain, and how to proactively prepare their team for it.
