Houston Business Report

ISM-Houston affiliate members Christina Butterworth and Katy Conrad Maynor have been named to this year's ThomasNet/ISM/Inbound Logistics "30 Under 30" Supply Chain Stars list. This prestigious list includes Supply Chain leaders from around the globe. 

Katy Conrad Maynor isn't just a rising star—she's a rock star, says nominator and ISM-Houston Past President David Allen. A superb negotiator and born leader, Maynor displays a special flair for uniting people with conflicting goals, guiding them toward solutions that pay off for all.

"Katy has a passion for connecting new professionals with experienced supply chain practitioners," says Allen. That's why, as part of the ISM-Houston affiliate, she took a lead role [working with fellow “30 Under 30” award recipient Christina Butterworth] in creating the organization's first Emerging Professional's Group (EPG), building a network of 250 members. "We want to encourage a constant pipeline of new talent coming into ISM and into the supply chain management discipline," Maynor says. The Houston group now serves as a role model for other ISM affiliates.

Christina Butterworth is a strong, influential leader notes her nominator Jami Bliss of Teva Pharmaceuticals.  She goes on to say “Throughout her career, Christina has been able to gain trust, articulate a vision, and lead a team to success”.

In her “30 Under 30” biography, Christina notes that her most significant career accomplishment to date was her successful involvement in the startup of ISM Houston's Emerging Professionals Group. Along with her Houston colleague, Katy Conrad Maynor, Butterworth played a major part in launching ISM-Houston's 250-member Emerging Professionals Group (EPG). Butterworth chaired the EPG committee in its first two years, and helped spread the word on how to create such a group at ISM's Affiliate Leadership training events in 2012 and 2013.
