How can ex-buyers raise the profile of procurement?

18 February 2008

In the current issue of SM we look at the career paths of some senior procurement professionals once they have reached CPO.

The posts they move to are varied; CEO, COO, MD sales and head of corporate responsibility, to name four.

How could ex-procurement individuals who move up the corporate ladder best represent the profession?

What type of thing could they do to act as procurement “ambassadors”?

Are there any examples of former senior buyers using their elevated position to spread the word about procurement?
