Chair of the Hey Big Spenders Panel
In the 10 years prior to joining Proxima, Edward progressed from being a category buyer to become the purchasing director of a FTSE250 hotel chain. In 2004, Edward joined Proxima and today is the Managing Director of the company’s Northern practice in Leeds. During his time at Proxima, Edward has worked with an extensive and varied client base, providing him with a wealth of experience and understanding as to the many challenges faced by organisations, their Board members and procurement professionals. Edward has lead multi-category engagements, procurement outsources and strategic transformation projects within a number of FTSE100 businesses, helping these organisations extract and sustain increased value from the full spectrum of their procurement and supply chain activities.
“Fundamental to our success at Proxima is how we change the way organisations think about indirect procurement, redefining it as an indispensable strategic tool to power their business. To reach out to such a high number of businesses across the Yorkshire region through this conference is such an exciting opportunity. I cannot wait to be a part of it.”
