The Accolades Come in Spades for Innovative Business Practices at the ASAP Alliance Excellence Awards Ceremony

Posted By Cynthia Hanson, Wednesday, March 4, 2015

ASAP recognized and honored the winners of the 2015 ASAP Alliance Excellence Awards Tuesday, March 3, as part of the 2015 Global Alliance Summit held at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando, Florida, USA. The ceremony, presented by ASAP President and CEO Mike Leonetti, CSAP/ASAP, and Annlouise Goodermuth, CSAP and director of alliance management, strategy, science policy, and external innovation at Sanofi, highlighted the accomplishments of four exceptional winners and two honorable mentions for “executing alliances in a new and innovative fashion,” said Leonetti.

 

The awards were presented to: National Grid and Earth Networks for Individual Alliance Excellence, The Dow Chemical Company and The Nature Conservancy for the Alliance for Corporate Social Responsibility, Philips for Innovative Best Alliance Practice with honorable mention to JanssenPharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, and Takeda for Alliance Program Excellence with honorable mention to Bayer. “The awards highlight some of the very best achievements in the industry and require hundreds of hours of work to qualify,” says Leonetti. “It’s a great way for businesses to highlight innovative accomplishments.”

 

An insightful question and answer session moderated by Jan Twombly, CSAP, of The Rhythm of Business, (see my next blog post today) followed the ceremony, revealing key information about the winning hands that put these companies at the top of the awards committee’s finalists. “There were more applicants this year than ever before,” observed Goodermuth. “There were more innovative approaches, first-time submissions, and even resubmissions from eight years ago.”

 

Taking home the ASAP Chapter Excellence award was the new ASAP Research Triangle Park (RTP) Chapter leader Path Amin, director of strategic alliances at Omnicell and former chapter vice chair. The RTP Chapter built a strong chapter community through the recruitment of high-quality speakers and consistently high-quality programming under the leadership of Rob von Alten, CSAP, senior director of alliance management at Quintiles. The RTP Chapter also won a chapter award for Chapter Excellence in Overall Operations in 2013 under von Alten’s leadership.

 

The 2015 ASAP Global Alliance Summit runs March 2-5 at the Hyatt Regency Orlando. While it’s not quite like being here, you can follow the summit sessions in our blog posts throughout the week and afterwards—and get the knowledge, insights, and success stories to elevate your own alliance excellence.
