Chief Procurement Officer
As the Interim Chief Procurement Officer, I lead the Procurement Plus function strategic direction for indirect category management, sourcing, and renewals for $10B of addressable spend. This includes supplier relationship management, supplier sustainability and diversity, third part risk management, across all categories including, but not limited to external talent, real estate, workplace, IT, and enterprise travel spend. I directly manage a team of senior reports that support this global offering while managing the service delivery of day-to-day operations by an extensive Business Process Outsourcing based team. Accenture’s Procurement Plus organization strives to operate as an industry benchmark/showcase for how procurement can drive value, provide automated guidance on buying, and support Accenture’s strategic profitability, sustainability, and inclusion & diversity priorities. We do this by using digitized processes to generate data and intelligence that change how the business engage in the buying process. This will deliver improved user experiences for the business, our suppliers, ecosystem, and the Procurement community.
