Conference will focus on mitigating risks across the extended supply chains

AMR Research's Supply Chain Executive Conference, to be held at The Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona, May 27-29, 2009 will feature a keynote address from Michael Eisner, CEO of Walt Disney Companies from 1984-2005.

This year's conference, themed "Captains of the Content Economy," will not only address how companies are struggling to understand and mitigate risks across their extended supply chains, but also how they can build, monetize, and protect their intellectual property.

  • Omar Khan, SVP of Strategy and Product Management, Samsung
  • Tony Prophet, SVP of Supply Chain Operations, Hewlett-Packard
  • Philippe Lambotte, SVP Customer Service & Logistics, Kraft Foods

  • Dan Carbery, SVP Operations, Endo Pharmaceuticals and Generics
  • Vance Moore, President, Sisters of Mercy Health System

The final day of the conference will offer specific tactical tools for practitioners in a series of classroom-style sessions, which include:

  • Embracing Risk In Global Supply Chains For Maximum Value
  • B2B Collaboration: Protecting Critical IP in a Global Marketplace
