Bernie Hogan

Bernie has been instrumental in the creation, development and evangelism of GS1 Standards throughout his almost 20 year career within GS1. He has been a key contributor to many of the standards that are now foundations of the GS1 portfolio, including RFID, EPCIS/CBV, GDSN and LEI to name a few. He is a mentor and a friend to the global community of GS1 MOs and end users and is often looked to for guidance and instruction. His efforts and dedication to the success of the GS1 System should be honored among his colleagues, peers and friends. Join me in thanking Bernie Hogan, GS1 US for his outstanding contributions to the GS1 family.
