Working Group Testimonials



“I’ve been on the Supply Chain Security Steering Committee for about five years now, and it’s a great way to sort of get a sense of the industry’s thinking in terms of supply chain security, and that’s upstream, downstream, logistics, distribution, illicit trade, counterfeits, and it’s been a tremendous source of knowledge and of ability to have discussions with your counterparts and other companies.”

Chris Trent, Director of Global Brand Protection for Johnson and Johnson

Supply Chain Security Steering Committee

“Being a part of the Supplier Quality Working Group is amazing, number one for networking and meeting new people. And the second is having a chance to collaborate with our industries because in the end, it’s impact to the patients, right? So, we want to make sure we have information available and everybody can use the resources we make sure are possible and available for everybody.”

Supplier Quality Working Group

“I’m one of the chairs of the Data Integrity Work Group. And the big benefit again is kind of working with experts in the industry. So from the data integrity perspective, we have a true global subject matter experts participate in this working group work, meet with them on a biweekly basis, become friends with many of them, some of the benefits behind that, in addition to those friendships and gaining that is being able to work with the team to create resources and tools to help not only my company, Eli Lilly and Company, but all of the Rx-360 colleagues globally.”
