Professor of Operations & Supply Chain / Book Author

Bram Desmet

Prof. dr. Bram Desmet is the CEO of Solventure. Besides running his own business, he is a professor of operations & supply chain at the renowned Vlerick Business School in Ghent, Belgium, and is also a guest lecturer at Peking University.

Bram’s foundation is the Supply Chain Triangle, which captures the balancing act between service, cost and cash that companies are facing today. He connects supply chain, strategy and finance through financial metrics, to show how supply chain has become the centrepiece of the business.

In 2018, Bram published his first book which describes how financial metrics provide insights into how supply chain, strategy and finance are interlinked; “Supply Chain Strategy and Financial Metrics”. As a follow-up to his first publication, Bram has written a second book called: “The Strategy-Driven Supply Chain” which will be released beginning of May 2021.
