Executive Vice President, Client Solutions
As EVP at Proxima, I’ve have responsibility for products, solutions, and marketing. I like to view my role as understanding the sorts of challenges that current and prospective clients face and then calibrating Proxima solutions to solve them. My (brilliant) team is thus accountable for presenting Proxima in the market, what we do and how we talk about it. I’m also a regular writer and speaker on all things procurement, digital, and change orientated.
I’ve spent over a decade working in solutions. This has allowed me to design hundreds of commercial programs and solutions across a variety of sectors and in multiple geographies. I think it’s one of the best jobs going because I get to meet a huge number of suppliers, business leaders, procurement professionals and up and coming future stars all passionate about procurement, change, and the difference that we can make to business. Together we make good things happen, solve problems, and create good stories to tell.
Outside of work I’ve got two young daughters who do their best to ensure that my hobbies are lost in theirs. This means that I enjoy coloring, painting, tidying up, being a chauffeur and pretending to be a dinosaur or monster (on rotation).
