“Companies must deal with ever increasing levels of complexity,” said Weil. “My goal, and the goal of DynaSys, is to enable these companies to minimize the complexity of their supply chain, operate more effectively, and improve their ability to deliver for their customers.”

QAD President and Chairman of the Board, Pam Lopker, who was named a Supply & Demand Chain ExecutiveProvider Pro to Know in 2015, said, “Ariel Weil is a recognized leader in the field of demand and supply chain software. His detailed knowledge of all aspects of the supply chain, particularly as it applies to manufacturing companies and their customers, allows him to provide invaluable strategic guidance to DynaSys.”
