Düsseldorf, April 2, 2012 – The Atlanta Metro Chamber recognized Insight Sourcing Group as the "Supply Chain Company of the Year", the company being the joint venture partner of Kerkhoff Consulting, the consultancy specializing in purchasing and supply chain management. According to the U.S. business journal "Inc. Magazine", the American company is the fastest growing purchasing consultancy in the United States.

"Insight Sourcing Group", the American market leader of purchasing consultancies, was one of three finalists in the contest for "Supply Chain Company of the Year". After a presentation of the candidates, 600 participants at the Georgia World Congress Center voted for the winner with their smart phones. In the end, Insight Sourcing Group prevailed over two strong competitors.

"Given the high quality of the other finalists, it is a great honor for us to receive this recognition", said Tom Beaty, CEO of the Insight Sourcing Group. "Atlanta is one of the biggest markets for supply chain companies and thus an excellent location for our company."
