Raymond’s De Souza to speak at CIBA forum
Jennifer de Souza, senior director of Energy Solutions, Procurement and Leasing at The Raymond Corporation, will participate in a panel at the Center for International Business Advancement’s (CIBA) Seventh Global Trade and Investment Forum on 7 April 2022, to speak about Raymond’s advanced energy solutions.
The theme of this year’s forum is “The Southern Tier and the World: Recharging Sustainable Economic Growth with New Battery Technologies.” This year’s forum will focus on the worldwide transition to clean energy and the impact of battery technologies on regional economies, particularly in New York’s Southern Tier. De Souza’s panel, “Transitioning from Lab Scale to Manufacturing Scale,” will highlight battery innovation and improving manufacturing and supply chain processes in the energy storage sector.
“It’s an honour to participate in this year’s forum and represent Raymond in a conversation as important to our industry and our community as this one,” de Souza said. “At Raymond, we take pride in providing advanced energy solutions that keep our customers running at peak efficiency and we are excited to continue to advance our energy solutions portfolio. The prospect of doing this with a localised, domestic, vertically integrated supply chain is exciting.”
De Souza has worked at The Raymond Corporation for over nine years, leading Raymond’s alternative energy initiatives. She was recognised as a Rock Star of the Supply Chain in 2020 for her contribution to efficiency, productivity and innovation in the global food supply chain.
