The thing I love about being a Gartner analyst is having the ability to learn how procurement leaders across industries tackle their most pressing challenges and using these collective insights to help our clients succeed. Having spent 15 years as a practitioner in multiple strategic roles in procurement, I am convinced that procurement as a function has the power to create a market competitive advantage. Long gone are the days where procurement’s role was cost savings. Today, procurement leaders support a wider range of strategic objectives such as enabling supplier innovation, leading the sustainability agenda and effectively managing supply risks. I’m always looking for success stories that I can incorporate into our research so we can better serve our clients. If you have a story to share or have any comments/questions/feedback you can reach me directly through LinkedIn. I’m especially interested in the following topics: supplier collaboration and innovation, responsible sourcing, and digital transformation in procurement. Specialties: Project Leadership – Product Management – Market Analysis and Benchmarking – Purchasing – Contract Negotiation – Risk Assessment – Contingency Planning – Material Cost-out Productivity – New Product Introduction – Technology Innovation – Spend Analysis - Strategic Sourcing and procurement - Category Management - Supplier Relationship Management - stakeholder management - business strategy – cost optimization
