Supply chain research and advisory firm, Ardent Partners, announced this month the winners of the Best-in-Class Procurement Leaders Recognised for Outstanding Achievement at the CPO Honours 2018 Gala in Boston, Massachusetts. Ardent established the Chief Procurement Officer Honours to celebrate “the procurement function and recognise the accomplishments of the profession’s top leaders and teams”. The awards are widely regarded as being the most prestigious in the procurement sector.

This year, Ardent Partners have named Dennis Silva, CPO of BCNET, the “Innovator of the Year”, for his work “helping unlock new opportunities for his company by fostering engagement among supply management professionals, institutional leaders, and their suppliers”. Silva joined BCNET, a not-for-profit shared services organisation based in British Columbia, in 2016. His role at the company has centered around setting up sector-wide procurement initiatives to reduce costs and improve administrative efficiencies.
