PASSAIC, N.J., April 5, 2022 -- Stephanie Lokker, CEO of Lockerbie and Co., a strategy and management consulting firm composed of former Big Four and Big Three (MBB) advisory leaders who provide transformational advising and solutions inclusive of people, processes, data and technology, was named to the ROI-NJ “power” list for her leadership, business acumen, and her role in overseeing the New Jersey Pride Chamber of Commerce’s Supplier Diversity and Certification initiatives for the state.
Lockerbie proudly holds 11 diverse-supplier certifications on both the state and federal level – including the national LGBTBE certification– and now is Hub-Zone certified. Lokker has positioned Lockerbie into a business strategy and planning powerhouse for corporations interested in developing successful supplier diversity, procurement, change management, and PMO/project management programs.
“I am grateful to the ROI-NJ editorial board for this prestigious recognition. It’s a privilege to help business leaders, from various sectors, understand how to diversify their supply chains in today’s global marketplace. We celebrate the opportunity to build inclusive networks that will shape the future of enterprise forever,” said Stephanie Lokker, CEO of Lockerbie and Co.
Recently, Lokker was appointed to the Board of Directors for the New Jersey Pride Chamber of Commerce, the only statewide organization that advances the business interests of LGBTQ+ and allied professionals in the tri-state area. It does so through promotion of economic growth and development of the Chamber’s members by providing LGBT Business Enterprise certification, networking opportunities, and a range of other business and professional development resources.
Lokker is currently leading a joint program initiative that will convene NJ’s 28 Fortune 1000 corporations’ procurement and supply diversity leaders. CPO’s and CSCO’s will have streamlined access to certified LGBT+ vendors. Through this program, LGBTBE certified businesses will gain greater awareness on how to utilize their certification and better position themselves for contracts as top suppliers to corporate partners.
