▶️ 'Procurement increases an organization's efficiency, according to a study. ↠ MY STORY: I have always loved developing relationships and generating value. Procurement offers the opportunity to harness my strengths to create wonderful partnerships and promote innovation. I've taken it as my mission to promote the true value of Procurement in Saudi Arabia and the region and help raise its maturity. I believe Procurement is well placed for Saudi Vision 2030 through digitalization, sustainability, and the development of local content in the Kingdom. I redefine Procurement and adopt world-class procedures at the leading brand in the Middle East, establishing networks of procurement leaders in the region and sharing my expertise with them. I began my career as a KSU's Electrical Engineering program graduate and am now an MCIPS-certified Procurement Professional with 24 years of experience working with global brands such as Lucent Technologies and stc. I manage technology partners and source between 10 and 15 BSAR annually, with 90% of the spend under management, producing over $1 billion in savings, and have received five global awards. One of my transformations has become a benchmark case study for Saudi Arabia's procurement. I have a history of driving innovative initiatives in the region, such as boosting in-country value, digitalization, and sustainability. I frequently publish articles on essential issues in our profession in the region, present at major conferences in both English and Arabic, and moderate panels at CPO events. I serve as a judge for global procurement awards. ↠ KEY OUTCOMES: ◾ Captured over 10 BSAR Local Content ◾ Increased EBITDA through decreased OpEx and savings between 7-15% YoY ◾ Enhanced partnerships and reduced time to the source with ''MFA'' Master Framework Agreements with strategic partners ◾ First RPA bot implementation served as a pilot project for Saudi procurement leaders. ◾ First digital signature implementation for Procurement in Saudi.
