Recognizing outstanding accomplishments by our customers and partners is one of the most satisfying activities at Hub. It’s our opportunity to share the creative things our customers and partners are doing around the world with the entire Anaplan community. If you couldn’t be at Hub17 in person, here’s who took home prizes. Customer awards During the morning keynote on March 28, Chief Customer Officer Simon Tucker announced four awards that had been given to Anaplan customers the previous night. “These people are extremely strategic in their organizations,” Simon said as he announced the winners. “They’re leading the vision of how Anaplan is going to be rolled out and connected across their organizations.”
- Visionary of the Year (Americas): Kelly Phillips, Halyard Health. Halyard, a spin-off from Kimberly-Clark, uses Anaplan for FP&A and Analysis of Change, and its Anaplan footprint is only continuing to grow in 2017. Kelly is a champion within Halyard for the global rollout and team adoption, and demonstrates Anaplan’s scalability in use cases within the company.
- Visionary of the Year (EMEA): Louis Vuitton Malletier. In July 2016, the global luxury brand tested the concept of demand-driven material requirement planning (DDMRP)—a sophisticated supply chain use case—in a hackathon. Today, Anaplan is the operational tool used daily to plan product distribution for seven regional warehouses, and additional Anaplan use cases are under development. A member of the Louis Vuitton team (who chose to remain anonymous) was recognized for passion, enthusiasm, and positive energy related to Anaplan.
- Visionary of the Year (APAC): Wayne Lo, Dimension Data. Anaplan has been in use at Dimension Data since 2014, starting with financial analysis and moving into business process optimization.
