InfinityQS International’s Michael Lyle Recognized as a 2016 Food Logistics Champion


President and CEO again honored for leadership and vision in manufacturing excellence for the food and beverage industry

FAIRFAX, Va. – March 30, 2016 – InfinityQS International, Inc., the global authority on real-time quality and Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence, announces that its president and CEO, Michael Lyle, has been recognized on the 2016 “Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain” list. For the second consecutive year, Food Logistics has honored Lyle for his leadership and vision in manufacturing excellence for the food and beverage industry.

A leading publication, Food Logistics conceived of the award to recognize influential individuals in the food/beverage industry whose achievements, hard work, and vision have shaped and continue to attain milestones in safety, efficiency, productivity, and innovation throughout the global food supply chain.

“Our industry benefits from the vision and dedication of early pioneers and contemporary entrepreneurs alike who understand the uniquely integrated relationship between people and the global food supply chain,” said Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief, Food Logistics. “From farmers to transportation providers and others who play a part in the global food supply chain, this award is Food Logistics’ way of celebrating the talented trailblazers and inspirational mentors whose work deserves acknowledgement and appreciation.”

With more than 25 years of experience, Lyle founded InfinityQS in 1989 to meet the need for an automated tool to analyze manufacturing quality data. As president and CEO, Lyle is responsible for guiding the overall direction of the company and continuously developing quality solutions to help clients meet their most pressing industry challenges.

“Customer safety is a top priority, especially if a manufacturer’s product is consumed,” said Michael Lyle, president and CEO, InfinityQS. “When quality issues like foreign objects, contamination, and foodborne illness threaten this safety – as seen with the recent recalls by NestlĂ©, Corona, Mars, and Bumble Bee – it can be devastating. The fact that even these well-respected brands can’t escape recalls should emphasize the importance of driving quality and food safety throughout the entire supply chain. Achieving true visibility is the only way to guarantee consumer safety.”

Individuals who earned a place within the “Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain” list will be profiled in the March 2016 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at
