Chicago, IL – October 13, 2014 – ArrowStream, Inc. (‘ArrowStream’) is deeply saddened to report the passing of its Founder and former CEO, Steven LaVoie. Steven founded ArrowStream in 2000 as an idea for how business partners could achieve greater results working together rather than working independently. This idea produced one of the most unique companies in the supply chain industry. With Steven’s leadership, ArrowStream empowered companies to re-invent business processes and relationships, through use of a technology to drive remarkable value in their supply chains.
“Steven loved to question the status quo,” said Frank Morgiewicz, CEO at ArrowStream. “He inspired us to challenge ingrained mindsets and encourage new ways of thinking. His creativity and influence in the supply chain industry is felt in many circles, and is witnessed in the tremendous outpouring of goodwill as he fought to recover from his injuries.”
The hearts and thoughts of the ArrowStream team are with Steven’s family during this difficult time. ArrowStream will miss its Founder, leader, mentor, and friend, while it continues to advance Steven’s vision for bettering supply chains for current and future customers.
“Steven was passionate about helping companies think differently about their business,” said Jody LaVoie, Steven’s wife and advisor to ArrowStream. “It is that same great passion for our mission that propels ArrowStream forward, with the strong, creative team that he brought together.”
“We are honored to carry on Steven’s legacy of innovation and partnership in our work with our customers,” said Morgiewicz. “We can think of no better response to this tragedy than to continue delivering the next generations of solutions to our customers’ core supply chain challenges.”
