Wendi Gentry-Stuenkel has taken up a new role as director of integrated logistics at commercial equipment-maker Caterpillar. As reported in January, she recently left her role as head of supply chain in North America for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) after a 20-year tenure with the company.
Caterpillar would not discuss the details of Gentry-Stuenkel’s responsibilities there but she has considerable experience in supply chain and logistics. She previously held various supply chain, purchasing and manufacturing roles with Chrysler, including director of commercial operations for Chrysler Group, director of supplier delivery risk management and inter-regional flow and, prior to that, senior manager for product development global sourcing.
In 2017, Caterpillar reorganised its logistics with the creation of its Product Support & Logistics Division (PSLD), led by Chris Snodgrass. The division covers design and manufacturing of wear and maintenance component products, as well as support of prime product and parts distribution, inbound and outbound logistics, warehousing functions, and packaging and container management.
