We continue to believe that recognition of companies and individuals within that community will be critical to the institutionalization of resiliency concepts and business practices within the enterprise

The winners of awards for supply chain resilience and risk management excellence were honored by the Global Supply Chain Resiliency Council at its annual event which took place on Wednesday, March 1st, 2017, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton, in Milpitas, California. This year’s event attracted over 100 attendees from all over the country. There are over 1,200 general members of the Resiliency Council.

The Resiliency Council was formed in 2015 by Resilinc founder and CEO, Bindiya Vakil along with supply chain luminaries from industry and academia. Its goal is to bring together supply chain risk management (SCRM) and resiliency practitioners with industry experts and thought leaders to advance the professional discipline through opportunities to collaborate, develop and share best practices, and be recognized for innovation and leadership. The awards program is one of the key elements of the Resiliency Council’s strategy to accelerate enterprise adoption of supply chain risk management and resiliency as a professional discipline and mission-critical business process.

“As evidenced by the over 100% year-over-year growth in event participation/interaction and general membership, the Resiliency Council has emerged quickly as the leading SCRM professional community and think-tank,” said Bill Hurles, Executive Director. “We continue to believe that recognition of companies and individuals within that community will be critical to the institutionalization of resiliency concepts and business practices within the enterprise.”

The awards program is designed to recognize organizations and individuals that serve as role models and leaders in driving supply chain resiliency strategy success within their company, supply chain network, and across industries. The awards committee considered nominations from its general membership of over 1,200 members worldwide comprised of OEMs/brand owners, suppliers, and experts from the Council’s technical advisor, Resilinc.
