A Force For The Future

ALI KENNEY
SENIOR DIRECTOR GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN
AND SUSTAINABILITY, BURTON SNOWBOARDS

LARRY HARRISON
BRAND DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR,
OUTDOOR RETAILER

 

If we had a nickel for every time Ali Kenney’s name came up in conversation around the OIA office, we’d be well on our way to matching the impressive financial impact she’s made on Burton’s bottom line. Ali has not only saved Burton hundreds of thousands of dollars with her innovative and forward thinking supply chain work, she has earned a reputation in the industry as a sustainability change maker. As a Skip Yowell Future Leadership Academy graduate, Ali is carrying on a legacy that started with industry veterans like Larry Harrison. Larry’s zeal and enthusiasm helped make our industry what it is today. As a sales rep, an executive at Adidas and now as the brand development director for the Outdoor Retailer trade show, Larry’s vision helped establish our industry’s values, which Ali is carrying forward. Thanks to these two and those among us like them, our future looks bright.
