There are as many different professional paths as there are people in the world, but that doesn’t mean all journeys are universally celebrated for their uniqueness. Something as simple as pursuing a nontraditional course of study or taking a few years off between college and a first professional role can send recruiters and hiring managers for a loop – blocking a mutually beneficial opportunity for everyone.

Richard Donaldson is the Vice President of Platform Management and Marketing at Requis, a company focused on driving the digital transformation of global enterprise supply chains. His career path has been anything but typical, with stints at multiple startups and time spent building out a brand new function at ebay.

In this interview, Richard joins host Scott Luton to discuss:

- How an abundance mindset plus some time spent working on data center infrastructure led him to begin an unlikely career in supply chain

- Why the supply chain can’t be managed holistically unless assets and data are free to flow from point to point in supporting systems

- Why waste reduction and the circular economy need to be managed as enterprise-wide initiatives if they are going to be successful in the long run
