    CPO Interviews

    Switzerland is home to some of the most successful multi-national companies and non-government organizations. The CPO interview is part of a series of management-level insights from Swiss-based global procurement leaders who openly share their wisdom and best practices. They also identify challenges and strategies that help them in building and successfully leading their organisations in the environment of technological disruption, volatility and uncertainty. CIPS Switzerland uniquely engages with them and offers our local community: best-practice events, workshops and networking opportunities.
