CSCMP CHICAGO presents:
End of Summer Soirée
Thursday AUGUST 4, 2016
This year’s kick-off event will be held in conjunction with Loyola’s Supply & Value Chain Center (SVCC) at the historic Cuneo Mansion and Gardens in Vernon Hills, IL.
Learn from Brad Mueller, Chief Operating Officer at HealthSmart International, about the evolving value chain and how to transform the enterprise through supply chain. By embedding supply chain competencies in non-traditional areas of the business, HealthSmart has gained more transparency, through a “live” integrated business cadence joined by one set of goals, driven by resources that add measurable value and consistently evolve to the changing business landscape. Networking reception to follow.
About the Venue:
Located in Vernon Hills, Illinois, Loyola at Cuneo Mansion and Gardens is home to the Cuneo family collection of fine art and furnishings, set in a beautiful 100-acre estate.
Construction on Cuneo Mansion and Gardens began in 1914 and was completed in 1916 as the home of Samuel Insull, an original founder of the General Electric Company, and designed by Chicago architect Benjamin Marshall in the Italianate style. Its gardens and landscaping were designed by world-renowned landscape architect Jens Jensen. In 1937, John Cuneo Sr. bought the home and lived there with his wife, Julia, and two children, John Jr. and Consuela. John Sr. owned and operated Hawthorn Mellody Farms Dairy, the National Tea Company, and the Cuneo Press.
In 2009, the Cuneo Foundation, the family foundation of John Cuneo Jr. and his wife, Herta, gave the estate to Loyola University Chicago. The $50 million gift, the largest in Loyola’s history, included the museum’s extensive collection of art and furnishings.
