The Supply Chain Resource Cooperative (SCRC) at the North Carolina State University Poole College of Management announces the appointment of Dana Magliola as director. Magliola fills a vacancy created with the May 31 retirement of Clyde Crider, who has served as director since 2010.

Originally from Charleston, S.C., Magliola moved to Raleigh in 2008 after living in Boston, Charlotte, and the greater New York area during his prior career. He has nearly 15 years’ professional experience including leading North American corporate social responsibility and managing communications for A.P. Moller-Maersk, serving as eastern North Carolina business development manager for UPS Logistics and principal consultant for BaerPoint Strategic Communications, as well as other fundraising, advancement, and government relations roles within political and academic organizations.

This spring, Magliola graduated from the NC State Jenkins MBA program at Poole College with a concentration in supply chain management. While in the Jenkins MBA program, he was selected to be an SCRC Scholar, a position dedicated to the development of in-depth practicum projects working with SCRC partner companies on real-world business challenges.

As an SCRC Scholar, Magliola led a team of other SCRC Scholars on a project sponsored by MHI (Material Handling Institute), researching, analyzing, and publishing the first-ever comprehensive economic impact analysis of the supply chain in North Carolina. Together, they presented their report and findings to various audiences across the Southeast, including the NC General Assembly, Charlotte’s Council of Supply Chain Professionals, and MHI’s Modex supply chain national conference in Atlanta. This project was also awarded second prize in the 2016 Poole College of Management Leadership & Innovation Showcase.

Magliola is a member of the inaugural class of Jenkins MBA students selected as McLauchlan Leadership Fellows, a leadership development program designed to support professional, graduate-level leadership education through experiential learning. He has also completed the BB&T Emerging Leaders program.

His activities extended beyond Poole College and the Jenkins MBA Program. Magliola served as a graduate student senator in NC State Student Government, and is the co-founder of the Maritime Club at NC State. He also is the volunteer head coach of the competitive NC State Sailing Team. Magliola holds a bachelor’s degree in art history from the University of Virginia, and graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy.

Robert Handfield, Bank of America University Distinguished Professor Supply Chain Management and SCRC executive director, cited Magliola’s experience in industry and through the SCRC as a foundation for his new role.

“Dana has been on both sides of the fence, as a student working for the SCRC and with our partner companies, and as a professional, with prior work experience that includes the logistics industry, communications and project management. He brings energy and insight that will be a great asset as we evolve into SCRC 3.0,” Handfield said.

“I look forward to working with the great faculty, staff and company partners to lead the SCRC organization forward, building on its already strong foundation and sterling reputation,” Magliola said.


The SCRC is an industry-university partnership dedicated to advancing the supply chain industry and professionalism. Based in the NC State University Poole College of Management, the SCRC provides support, services and programs to benefit supply chain students, the college’s supply chain faculty and its corporate partners. Through SCRC-coordinated practicum projects, students work on company projects, applying classroom learning to help solve real supply chain challenges.
