Maryland business school supply chain students name Mark Holifield Each year, students in the Supply Chain Management Society and the Supply Chain Club at the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business honor an influential leader in the supply chain industry. This year, the honor has gone to Mark Holifield, senior vice president of global supply chain for Home Depot.

Holifield has worked in supply chain logistics for more than 30 years, handling high-volume retail supply chain management, logistics and shipping issues. Since 2006, he has been responsible for the Home Depot's retail logistics, import and domestic distribution, delivery, transportation and inventory planning and replenishment operations.

Prior to working for Home Deport, Holifield was executive vice president of supply chain management at Office Depot, where he was responsible for the successful operation of its global supply chain, including 57 distribution centers worldwide that served all retail stores and customer delivery operations. He has also been employed by Frito-Lay, Dallas Systems Corporation and H. E. Butt Grocery Company.

"We are pleased to honor Mark Holifield for his significant achievements in the field of supply chain and logistics," said G. Anand Anandalingam, dean of the Robert H. Smith School of Business. "This chance to interact with one of the top leaders in the industry adds another element to the rich, experiential learning-based education our students are getting in supply chain and logistics, making them some of the most desirable and most successful graduates in their field."
