About Me

At the outset of my professional career, which I embarked on over 9 years ago, I chose to work in Supply Chain Management – focusing on Procurement. I have worked as a procurement professional in both manufacturing and service organizations. I have been fortunate to have multinationals as my employers all along, where the fast paced and challenging environment helped cultivate myself as a self-reliant, confident and effective professional – qualities that are necessary to compete, contribute and succeed in today’s fast paced, demanding and constantly changing professional world.

Procurement (purchasing and supply) is now recognized as a vital discipline towards ensuring operational success, efficiency, competitiveness and growth of all types of organizations –development, business or government. I have enhanced and refined, in the course of my professional career, competences in cross-functional team-working, stakeholder management, conflict management, promoting innovation and learning culture, adaptability, strategic thinking, and corporate vision.

To anchor my experience-based capabilities on a solid foundation of relevant world-class education, I enrolled myself in 2011 with the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply of the UK and become an MCIPS in 2013. Needless to say, MCIPS confers membership into a select group of procurement professionals who have recognition and acceptability in almost any country of the world.
