Meet James Westgarth, Senior Director, Procurement Performance, Systems & Excellence at The Lufthansa Group

 

A ban on night flights out of Frankfurt Airport is one of the chief culprits in December’s 6.5 percent year-on-year decline

 

James Westgarth has 20 years’ experience in procurement, and specifically in integrating technology to optimize process, compliance and performance. Having started his procurement journey at Airbus in Toulouse, where he led the implementation project for a new travel management system across four countries, he subsequently expanded his scope to category strategy development, sourcing, ordering, contract management and SRM for indirect procurement. From 2016 to 2018, James led the transformation of General Procurement at Airbus Americas in Washington DC. He is currently in charge of Procurement Performance across all spend categories for The Lufthansa Group (2019 spend: €22 billion), reporting into the Group CPO. 

Join Westgarth at 10:30 (UK Time) on Tuesday 28 where he will be discussing ‘Surviving Severe Turbulence: Insights and Learnings from the Lufthansa Group Procurement COVID-19 Experience’.
