Kimberly Kirkendall, began her career managing factories in China and supporting a greater Asia supply chain before founding the consultancy International Resource Development, Inc. Over two decades IRD has worked with thousands of companies to improve operations worldwide and manage international trade
At IRD we look at our consulting as training. We want our client’s teams to build capabilities.
In addition Ms. Kirkendall has taught supply chain courses – at universities, for business on behalf of government programs, etc.
Therefore it was a natural extension for us to develop training programs that are straight forward and practical for growing businesses. And to bring in our colleagues to develop classes aligned with their area of specialization.
