SYSPRO, a developer of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, announced today that SYSPRO USA President Joey Benadretti was a keynote speaker at the September 20, 2012, presentation of the British American Business Awards (BABAs) by the Orange County Chapter of the British American Business Council (BABC). As a past BABC award winner and in recognition of his skilled business leadership, the BABC invited Benadretti to share the keynote address with David Pyott, CEO of Irvine-based Allergan Pharmaceuticals. The gathering was held at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach, during which awards were presented to six executives from leading Orange County companies: William Wang, CEO of Vizio; Jim McCluney, CEO of Emulex; David Perry, CEO of Gaikai; Reynolds Bish, CEO of Kofax; Kirsten Mangers, CEO of Treehouse Corporation; and Adam Markman, Managing Director of Green Street Advisors. Each recipient presented their unique hindsight view of how they helped to successfully steer their companies through the downward economy.
Following the presentation of the awards, the audience was treated to a question and answer panel session led by Rick Reiff, TV Host and Executive Editor of the Orange County Business Journal.
"SYSPRO and Allergan were asked to deliver the key note addresses, since they are amongst the most innovative and forward thinking companies in their respective fields," stated John Miller, President, BABC.
