Chartered Procurement and Supply Professionals – a new powerful global presence within the profession – share their stories about how they will strive to take the profession beyond its current boundaries.
“I saw it as an opportunity to demonstrate the value I could bring as an engineer making the transition into procurement. When CIPS announced Chartered Status, I saw that this was going to be the next big thing for procurement and that it would help me add value to procurement at Unilever."

Head of Contract Manufacturing Procurement, Africa, Unilever
“I believe that it's inevitable that at some point the profession will become fully licensed and I want to be part of that journey."
Gary Howard FCIPS, Chartered Procurement and Supply Professional
