Ms. Barney is currently responsible for leading the strategy to transform the quality of inbound flow into Walmart. In her prior role as Senior Director of Supply Chain Services, Ivy led a team responsible for optimizing inbound transportation, distribution and reverse logistics for the Walmart US Supply Chain.

Held biennially, the Global Summit is the premier event for the global corrugated and containerboard industries. The event brings together industry leaders for two days of meetings, insightful speakers, recreation and plenty of networking time. Attendees will enjoy a welcome reception on Monday evening, followed by four general sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday, and a reception and gala dinner on Wednesday evening.
Given the US location in 2019, the Fibre Box Association (FBA) will hold its Annual Meeting as a combined event with the Global Summit. The event will offer members an expanded view on the key topics and trends impacting our industry, not just around the corner, but around the world.
