Tragedy Strikes Supply Chain

By Steve Simmerman | 07/31/2014 | 5:29 PM

Today was a sad day for many of us in the supply chain software marketplace.  Steve LaVoie, CEO of Arrowstream was gravely injured in a shooting incident at the Arrowstream offices in Chicago.  A disgruntled employee was allegedly involved in the incident and subsequently killed himself.  I ask that all of you please take a moment to pray for Steve, the victim, their families and all of our colleagues and friends at Arrowstream.  Workplace violence is often tragic and it is a sad day when it strikes so close to home.
