This year’s Procurement Power List, which reveals the most influential people in procurement, has been announced by CIPS and Supply Management.

Having been unveiled at an exclusive event at Sea Containers in London earlier this week, the list acknowledges the leaders who are driving procurement and supply chain strategies forward and making a positive contribution to the reputation of the profession.

“We are delighted to announce The Procurement Power List 2019 with another exceptional group of leaders who are raising the bar for procurement; leading and influencing in their organisations, within the profession and among the wider business community,” commented Malcolm Harrison, group CEO of CIPS. “This list is important for procurement as it demonstrates just how far we have come as a profession and places us firmly among our business peers. I hope by reading more about this impressive group that more people will be inspired to enter procurement and become tomorrow's leaders.”

“Those who appear on this list have demonstrated that they are a business leader above and beyond their function, are a valued member of their board, and can align their function to support the business agenda,” added Lucy Harding, of headhunter Odgers Berndtson and one of the panel.
