He is a Certified Safety Professional (CSP) with more than 18 years of both field and management level experience across multiple industry verticals and earned a degree in Bioenvironmental Sciences from Texas A&M University. He currently manages operations of the QHSSE (quality/health/safety/ sustainability/environmental) and Solution Engineering teams for the organization. He utilizes his experience and technical knowledge to ensure Avetta clients and suppliers are provided world class services to support QHSSE maturity.

“Danny Shields has a unique knowledge and skill set that helps both our client and supplier groups assess, understand and mitigate risk, manage compliance requirements, and create safe workplaces for thousands of workers,” said Indy Chakrabarti, Chief Strategy & Marketing Officer at Avetta. “He tackles each challenge with the full force of his technical knowledge and experience to the benefit of our clients, suppliers and the company.”

Shields has deep background and experience with presenting the latest safety and supply chain risk management topics throughout North America, including most recently at the Mines and Technology Conference, the Business Development Institute and OHS Leaders. He will present at ASSP’s Safety 2020 Professional Development Conference in June and NSC Annual Safety Congress and Expo in October.

The ‘Pros to Know’ Awards recognize supply chain executives, and manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate. This year’s list includes more than 200 individuals from software firms and service providers, consultancies or academia who helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet these challenges—and more than 40 ‘Practitioner Pros’, who do the same within their own companies.

“The supply chain profession is the most exciting it’s ever been. With cutting-edge technologies designed to help the industry run smoother, easier and safer, coupled with professionals leading the charge for change, innovation and sustainability, it’s an exciting time to be in the supply chain industry,” says Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “These Pros to Know are the best of the best in their industry, and I look forward to seeing how they continue to revolutionize today’s—and tomorrow’s—supply chains.”
