CPO Guest Post_Blog

It’s been an action-packed summer for Tradeshift, especially when it comes to events. One industry luminary that we’ve been privileged to have spoken at our Digital Leadership Circle in New York City, and to speak again on an upcoming ISM webinar (9/28) is Joanna Martinez.

Joanna joined Cushman & Wakefield as Executive MD and CPO in 2009 where she built a global procurement strategy and platform. Before that, she was SVP & CPO at AllianceBernstein and held executive procurement roles at Diageo and Johnson & Johnson. Now, she’s got her own consulting practice.

We distilled her last keynote presentation to arrive at 10 powerful statements that any modern procurement leader should know and keep top-of-mind for driving change and advancing the procurement discipline. As you’ll see, it’s not just about driving cost reductions. It’s time to collaborate and get creative with stakeholders and suppliers so that you can continually meet and help establish requirements as new products and services crop up from the business.

Read all of Joanna’s takeaways below:
