We were thrilled to have a distinguished guest at L&P for the past two days. Anthony Ross is the Leggett & Platt Missouri Distinguished Professor of Supply Chain Management from the Trulaske College of Business at the University of Missouri. He and his team represent a Leggett-sponsored professorship at the university.
His visit to L&P included networking activities with several of our leaders within supply chain operations, as well as tours of our local manufacturing branches.
We’re grateful for the time Anthony spent getting to know L&P!
