Procurement Manager

With over 24 years of rich experience in procurement and legal domains, I've led dynamic and cross-functional teams dedicated to crafting unique services that empower individuals to surpass their career objectives. My profound commitment lies in contributing to the realization of strategic goals for both the business and our organization. In my prior tenure at KBC, I undertook various pivotal roles aimed at enhancing procurement and services for internal stakeholders. My accomplishments include implementing category management and supplier relationship strategies, establishing and maintaining robust processes, and successfully onboarding new projects. Beyond the professional sphere, I am an intrepid traveler with a passion for exploring new horizons. A devoted tennis enthusiast and I also maintain a weekly running routine. Above all, I take immense pride in being a father to two wonderful kids, underscoring the significance of family in my life.
