Riskpulse is a supply chain risk analytics company that helps its clients and their partners increase the predictability and stability of their financial and physical operations globally. Many of the largest food shippers, consumer packaged goods manufacturers, automakers, and retailers trust the Riskpulse Score (RpS) and the Riskpulse suite of cloud-based software applications to standardize their quantification of risk and guide their operational planning. Headquartered in Austin, TX, Riskpulse is rapidly becoming the standard way for members of the supply chain to get the signals they need to optimize for risk.

Mark is the SVP of Weather Operations at Riskpulse based in Chicago. He ensures weather forecast accuracy, product timeliness, and customer-focused impact-oriented communication for supply chains, business operations, and commodity trading/hedging.

Henry Bonner:

Henry has over 25 years’ experience in the risk management technology space. Originally in the FinTech sector focused on the emerging field of risk management in capital markets in the 1990's. He transferred these skills and experience to the energy commodity sector as the energy markets deregulated and was a founding team member of the leading technology company in the physical commodity risk management space.

The exposure to the business of commodity supply chains led to the development of risk management solutions oriented to physical movements. More recently, Henry became involved in the Agribusiness commodity technology sector as CEO of one of the largest software companies in the sector, with solutions for managing risk in supply chains, particularly for the Consumer-Packaged Goods and Food & Beverage industries.

As the Chief Product Officer of Riskpulse, Henry leans on his deep risk management technology experience across physical and financial markets, to guide Riskpulse as the leading innovative solution for supply chain predictive and prescriptive analytics and risk measurement.
