I'm Stephen F. DeAngelis, a technology and supply chain sector entrepreneur with over 25 years of experience in building, financing and operating technology and manufacturing companies. I founded Enterra Solutions, LLC, in 2003 to address the global complexity challenges of corporations and governmental agencies through the effective use of artificial intelligence and patented best practices. Enterra’s Supply Chain Optimization Platform is an artificial intelligence-enabled leap-ahead technology that services manufacturers and their supply chain partners in the consumer products and retail sectors.

Prior to Enterra, I founded and served as CEO of IndustryNetworks, LLC, a supply chain technology company, where I launched the first web-service enabled supply chain management system. I was also president and chief executive officer of Mercer Industrial Holdings, LLC, and its portfolio firm, Technical Coatings Industries, Inc. a specialty chemicals industry manufacturing company. Additionally, I founded a strategy and government affairs consulting firm in Washington, DC and was a member of the Bank of Boston’s Strategic Planning Group in the Office of the Chief Executive Officer.

I have served on a number of Boards of Directors including the Hepatitis B Foundation, the Association for Enterprise Integration of the National Defense Industrial Association, the Pearl S. Buck International, and Sasha Bruce Youthworks in Washington, DC.

In this blog, I discuss issues about the effects of globalization on business and government with a focus on supply chain management, innovation, and entrepreneurism. Our goal is to advance the public discussion about Enterprise Resilience Management and the new organizational environment.
