I am an executive-level procurement strategist and sourcing team leader for multinational organizations seeking to create partnerships between the procurement function and stakeholders across the business. I am known for my talents in strategically sourcing goods and services quickly at impressively lower costs.
Most recently, I helped to launch a Boston flagship store for a European fashion retailer (Primark) planning to expand into the US market. Earlier roles (Brown Shoe Company, MeadWestvaco, and Georgia-Pacific) focused on building a top-shelf procurement program and identifying the processes, technologies, and teams to accomplish corporate goals. In my earliest career, I led procurement consulting functions for global Fortune 100 companies as a manager / senior consultant with both Deloitte Consulting and Ernst & Young / Cap Gemeni.
In fact, in every position, I lowered costs, increased diversity spend, and elevated the value of procurement within the organization and specifically to the executive team. By believing that the relationship between procurement and the various departments is one of true partnership, I also found ways to improve operations and decrease the time to market.
