      Ann Drake `84 never thought she would lead a national company or become an icon of supply chain management. That all changed in 1984, when her father, Jim McIlrath, asked her to join the board of directors for the public warehousing firm he founded. Armed with a newly minted MBA from Kellogg, she accepted the opportunity and became a director at Dry Storage Corp.


      With an innovative approach, Ann transformed DSC Logistics to become a go-to for network analysis and design, logistics and transportation management, supply chain visibility, business process integration, and more. Learn more about Ann's story in this Kellogg Alumni Feature.
