The message is clear: even if we cannot safely gather in-person, companies want to collaborate and learn from one another. We are delighted to provide that opportunity with ReAlign 2021, continuing a tradition that began three years ago.

Today, RapidRatings, the leading provider of financial health data and analytics, announced the program and speaker lineup for a third client summit, ReAlign—featuring unique perspectives from preeminent supplier and third-party risk officers—in a format reimagined for the pandemic era.

“Whether public or private, large or small, new or established—businesses worldwide have faced unprecedented challenges this year, and have grown and evolved in response,” said Nitin K. Walia, Chief Client Officer at RapidRatings. “Given this and the moment we’re in, it’s incredibly important that our clients have a platform to share their expertise and insights from a year unlike any other. The message is clear: even if we cannot safely gather in-person, companies want to collaborate and learn from one another. We are delighted to provide that opportunity with ReAlign 2021, continuing a tradition that began three years ago.”

RapidRatings previously held in-person client summits, to bring together a community of like-minded professionals who valued transparency and collaboration for the benefit of global financial health.

At ReAlign, those themes will also feature prominently within a new—and all-virtual—core agenda launching the week of February 15th, 2021:

A fireside chat—Views from the Top: CPO Perspectives on 2021 and Beyond

An interactive webinar—Stepping Up: Healthcare Supply Chains Responding to COVID-19

An in-depth, program showcase—Learning from the Pros: Establishing Best-In-Class Vendor Risk

Confirmed client-speakers include: Brooke Fan, Executive Director Procure to Pay Shared Service at Kaiser Permanente; Sajid Kunnummal, Vice President & Chief Procurement Officer at Navistar; Keith Mellett, Senior Director of Supply Chain Procurement at Becton-Dickinson; Sue Spence, Vice President of Sourcing, Procurement & Accounts Payable at FedEx; and Beata Wandachowicz-Krason, Director of Supplier Risk Management at Philips.

The firm will also recognize RapidRatings Awards recipients in the following categories:

  • Bold Start—clients that have launched ambitious and expansive programs to transform risk management in their first year
  • Community Champion—clients that have embraced “Community” at-large by building collaborative relationships with partners and through knowledge-sharing
