“I obtained the ISM C.P.M. certification while working as a Senior Buyer for my organization. Years later when I moved to Materials Management, I obtained the APICS CPIM for its in-depth focus on inventory management practices. In 2014 I was promoted to supervise the warehouse and logistics operations and when APICS offered the CLTD, it was a natural fit for my current area of focus. With these certifications, I can do my job more efficiently and strategically, and I feel I have a better understanding of the challenges across the organization’s supply chain.” – David Bench, CPIM, CLTD
