DENVER—Johns Manville has selected Marcia Howes as its vice president, global supply chain.
The firm said she comes to JM from a similar position with BJC HealthCare in St. Louis, bringing more than 20 years of experience in all aspects of supply chain management and in driving operational excellence across complex organizations.
