Meet Greg Smith, Director of Logistics

by Greg Smith | Dec 08, 2016

Greg Smith 2A few weeks ago I joined the St. Louis Regional Chamber as the Director of Logistics.

I am born and bred St. Louisan, a graduate of the University of Missouri - St. Louis, and I earned an MBA from Saint Louis University. I have spent over 30 years in supply chain management at four large corporations, all in the St. Louis area. I also spent over a decade involved in relocation and economic development projects.

I am excited to be involved in attracting new and expanding businesses of all types that are involved in manufacturing and supply chain management.  My experience, education, and deep understanding of the St. Louis area are all great assets to have to make business aspirations a reality.   

The discipline of supply chain management has evolved over the last few decades to become a critical aspect of any business. Supply chain management strategies are essential  to running a business and meeting the customers’ demands.

St. Louis is not only the Gateway to the West, but it’s also the Gateway to the North, South, and East. The region’s central location connects the entire country’s population with fantastic highway, rail, air, and waterway transportation options. These options are complemented by the region’s excellent higher education institutions that are training the next generation of manufacturing and supply chain management leaders.

Meet me at our next Logistics Forum on January 14, 2017 as former Missouri Governor Matt Blunt discusses how automobile manufacturing is the heart of the country’s industrial base.

With the help of the St. Louis Regional Chamber and all of its partners, we will work to leverage the region’s tremendous assets to attract new businesses and expand those that already call St. Louis home.  

Not only does St. Louis have the location, location, location, but it’s just a great place to live, work, and invest.
