As the saying goes “Variety is the spice of life” and my career has been varied across sales, marketing and procurement principally from 24 years at PepsiCo, a Global FMCG blue chip company. Each discipline providing skills and learnings which have allowed me to develop and grow. I really enjoy complex change programmes, building business partnerships and finding innovation.

 

My home is now procurement having spent 8 years in Indirects procurement managing a wide portfolio across IT and Purchased Services. Here I worked across extremely mature categories looking for new and innovative ways of working, at the same time expanding procurement coverage into brand new areas. Multi-tasking is a great skill to develop here, some would call it circus plate spinning.

 Recently I’ve joined Bell Integration which is a really interesting new opportunity that pulls on all my skills to take a more consultancy type procurement role. Exciting procurement times ahead in the discipline I am passionate about. We have the unique position within a busines to bring the outside in.  Use it well, deliver value and be a trusted business partner
