I spent 15 years actively contributing to Procurement development of medium-size companies and large international corporations in Manufacturing and Retail, being a sourcing responsible for 800'000'000 Euro business. Was working with Retail and Manufacturing companies in Europe, Asia and North America.

I truly believe in power of Procurement organization for the success of the entire company, and I want to spread my knowledge and experience to all over the world.

That is why I developed a Future Procurement development program. Probably the best program in the world for Procurement professionals!

I want to share my knowledge and engage as many people as possible around idea of improving the existing practices in our business, bringing our profession to a completely new level.  My mission is: “To improve the world by Future Procurement organizations”.
