The shortlist includes Eskalem Bogale from the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR); Fabienne Lesbros from Britvic; Paul Mortimore from Boeing Defence UK; and David Pyle from the Crown Commercial Service.

Nominees for the CIPS Young Procurement and Supply Chain Management Professional of the Year have also been announced. They include Steven Linden from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP); Paul Nyathore from mobile network operator Safaricom; and Owen Standen from Citi.

The winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony on 11 September at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane. Comedian and actor Stephen Mangan will compere the evening.
