Louis Bourassa, Supply Chain Analytics Expert, To Head Up New Analytics & Optimization Practice

JBF Consulting, a unique supply chain execution consultancy focused on logistics, welcomes Louis Bourassa to the firm. Louis’ expertise in supply chain optimization and engineering innovation spans over 25 years. He will now head up the new Analytics & Optimization practice at the Connecticut-based JBF. According to Forbes Insights/Cisco research, an impressive 85% of companies that are succeeding with analytics are seeing revenue growth greater than 7%. Less than a quarter of analytics laggards reach that percentage.

“We are excited at the opportunities that Louis brings to our clients. Too often we see shippers and carriers not taking full advantage of the technology and industry advances available to them. By creating the Analytics and Optimization practice we seek to work with our clients to fill that gap and take their supply chain to the next level.” said Brad Forester, founder of JBF Consulting. “Louis is the perfect fit for the job considering his background, domain expertise and love of data analytics. When you talk with Louis, you quickly realize he is someone you can trust to deliver on improving your business.”

“Talking with the leadership team at JBF Consulting, I was impressed with their depth of knowledge and the partnership they have developed with their clients,” said Bourassa. “Providing analytical and optimization support to these clients seems like a natural next step and the smart thing to do.”

Bourassa has a diverse background with a mix of industry, consulting and software roles that allowed him to develop a strong business acumen and expert knowledge of supply chain analysis and design. Industries covered include Consumer Goods, Industrial Goods, Retail, Wholesale, Distribution, Software, Chemical and Metallurgical. Prior to joining JBF Consulting, Louis held roles as an Associate Director at the Boston Consulting Group, Senior Manager at Chainalytics and Technical Account Manager at IBM.  He holds a Bachelor and Master’s degrees in Metallurgical Engineering from McGill University in addition to a Master’s degree in Supply Chain Management from MIT.
