Director of Net Zero
I’ve been married for over 25 years and have 3 grown-up children. I’m also part of the leadership team for my local church. I started my professional career 30 years ago as a Junior Buyer in an automotive company and stayed in that industry for roughly 19 years, then moved to 2buy2 over 11 years ago and now manage a team which is split between category management and procurement consultancy.
I have a great team that I enjoy working with, they are passionate about working with clients and delivering valuable results for them. I enjoy being able to share and see how procurement makes a difference not just for ourselves as a company but for our clients. I’ve also enjoyed watching 2buy2’s journey over the past 11 years.
By adding value to our clients. We create value and add value into organisations, changing their perception about what procurement means and how it impacts an organisation, not only strategically but operationally as well. It’s really important for me to to get that message across.
Respect. I try to embed it into my own family and also for for the staff that that I work with. I think that having respect for others around you, whether that’s your own work colleagues, or it’s your clients, or your customers is important.
I’m passionate about creativity. I really enjoy looking at new solutions and trying to develop new processes that are based off previous experiences and adapting and modifying it into what I do now. I’m always looking for solutions in procurement and finding the best way to deliver solutions to our clients I’m also passionate about my family and sport, I loved playing it when I was younger and watching it now, especially watching my children succeed in their sports.
I would never go potholing, I hate confined spaces!
