Head of Procurement and Exchequer Services

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar

July 2008 - December 2018 (10 years, 5 months) | Outer Hebrides
I'm professionally qualified in both Procurement and Accountancy with over 25 years’ experience in the UK public sector in both English and Scottish local authorities. I have an outstanding record in developing and delivering strategies and policies that deliver better outcomes, generate cost savings & improve efficiency. My teams have demonstrated UK level award winning performance in both procurement innovation and business improvement. I'm passionate about the potential that public procurement has to transform the way we commission and deliver services and ultimately improve people's lives. To help unleash the power of public procurement I've presented at national conferences, delivered webinars, participated in thought leadership events and published articles and blog posts in the procurement press and on social media sites.
