Fitzpatrick joined LMI in 2018 as chief growth officer, leading a team dedicated to expanding LMI’s services and capabilities throughout the federal government. He has a strong record of achievement in strategic growth, business development, and operational management.
From an unprecedented global demand surge in personal protective equipment to supply-side challenges like port congestion and plant closures, the COVID-19 pandemic has illustrated the importance of supply chain resilience.
Fitzpatrick will be followed by keynote speaker Navy Rear Adm. John Polowczyk, supply chain task force lead at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to further discuss the implications inherent with the global pandemic.
Polowczyk recently spoke at the COVID-19 task force briefing, where he stated that the government will continue to expand the emergency stockpile of critical supplies and medicines managed by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
He noted that federal officials will enact a provision that would shield companies from antitrust regulations to help the country from running out of medical supplies in a pandemic. Under the voluntary agreement, the government would develop a plan for future large-scale acquisitions with suppliers, manufacturers and distributors.
