The average base salary for supply chain managers is $106,152, according to the 2014 Supply Chain Salary Survey. This slideshow accompanies Measuring the Worth of a Supply Chain Manager, MH&L’s 2014 special report on executive compensation and workforce issues.
When we crunched the numbers, we were able to compile a composite portrait of what a typical supply chain manager looks like: a white male in his 50s, living in the Midwest, with at least 26 years of experience in the industry, and working for a metals producing manufacturer. He is in a corporate/executive management role, has a Bachelor’s degree, and has been with his current company for 11-15 years.
But to find out exactly how your salary compares to those of your peers, we've prepared this gallery of salary profiles, focused on various categories. You can also hear from your peers in our collection of frank (and anonymous) comments on the supply chain's biggest challenges from survey respondents.
