International SOS and Control Risks win the Individual Alliance Excellence Award 2016

International SOS and Control Risks, after eight years of partnership, have been recognised with this year’s Individual Alliance Excellence Award from the Association of Strategic Alliance Professionals (ASAP), the world’s leading professional association dedicated to the practice of alliance management, partnering, and collaborations.

The award was presented at the 2016 Global Alliance Summit, “Partnering Everywhere: Expert Leadership for the Ecosystem,”  where nine finalists vied for the top spots in three categories: Alliance Program Excellence, Innovative Best Alliance Practice, and Individual Alliance Excellence.

The award for Individual Alliance Excellence Award was presented for “excellence in planning, implementation, and results of a single alliance between two companies or multiple organizations.” The award committee  said of International SOS and Control Risks that “Their nearly seamless alliance changed the way the market perceives support and assistance of business travellers and expatriates. The formation of a joint venture resulted in significant benefits for both companies and their clients in terms of crisis management during emergencies such as the Ebola crisis and the Arab Spring”. The seven-member ASAP Alliance Excellence Awards committee is chaired by Annlouise Goodermuth, CSAP, of Sanofi.
