Help companies dramatically reduce cost, gain competitive advantage and manage risks, through supply chain and operational improvements.

I’ve transformed procurement organizations to deliver EBITDA in excess of $670 million over the last 15 years. My approach is to partner with stakeholders to identify un-tapped opportunities and build the governance, processes, talent and technology to achieve aggressive profit targets. I’ve developed highly motivated and capable teams that delivered high levels of customer satisfaction.

  • Saved $106 million through a cross-portfolio strategic sourcing program for a $2B, 27-company private equity firm
