Executive Director, Supply Chain Management
Louis Cheung heads up the Supply Chain Organization of Bostik Inc., a division of the $7.6 billion French-based chemical company called Arkema. Bostik Inc. is one of the top 3 global adhesive companies headquartered in Wisconsin. Louis has more than 28 years of global experience in Manufacturing, Supply Chain, Engineering and Product Development across multiple industries. He currently holds senior management and leadership roles in the Americas Executive Team responsible for Customer Service, Planning, Purchasing, Strategic Sourcing & Outsourcing, Logistics, International Trade, and end-to-end Business Process Management. In addition to his three master degrees in Chemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Electrical Engineering, Louis has an MBA from Purdue University and is a graduate of the Advanced Management Program at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. He is also a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, CPIM from APICS, and CPSM from ISM. On the personal front, Louis currently lives in the “partly sunny” Wisconsin. He came to the USA 29 hours after he turned 18 years old, went to university, got married, got his first job as an industrial R&D Scientist, and here he is enjoying his empty nest with his wife Cathy. None of their four children are married yet because they are having too much fun with their careers in social media and medicine. Louis’ next three personal milestones are to become a grandfather then retire (eventually) then work four hours every weekday as a career coach to pass on his life-long learned lessons to the next generation of leaders.
