October, 2023Cleveland, Ohio — River Rock Advisors (RRA), a leading value chain management firm that partners with global manufacturing and distribution organizations, is celebrating their 10-year anniversary as a company.

Since its conception, RRA has been recognized five times on SupplyChainBrain’s 100 Great Supply Chain Partners List and is a two-time winner of the Weatherhead 100 Upstart Award.

Additionally, both RRA co-founders, Gary Jones and Steve Keener, on separate years have been recipients of the Pros to Know award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine, a publication for leadership at manufacturing and non-manufacturing organizations covering a variety of supply chain operations topics and events.

“We are so proud of how far we’ve come, not just as a company, but as a team,” said RRA Partner and Co-founder Gary Jones. “We look forward to many more years of bringing value to our clients and expanding talent in the Cleveland market.”

Jones and Keener created RRA in 2013 after more than 30 years of working with larger supply chain consulting firms. Their focus was, and still is, to model a boutique style of management consulting firm and bring consulting professionals back into the market.

RRA continues to identify, reach out, add and then grow talent in their Rocky River office, which is expected to double in space. Their success as a business comes down to how the firm puts its collective experience to use in helping organizations implement and monitor metrics that are specific and appropriate to their industry and businesses.

“We are excited to be celebrating 10 years of business,” said RRA Partner and Co-founder Steve Keener. “With continuous recognition for our expertise and efforts, we hope we can continue to grow and flourish as a team for the betterment of our community.”
