Remote worker with 34+ years of experience - Last seen ago

What I care about most is setting everyone up for success - whether itโ€™s companies, customers, teams, and individuals.

Iโ€™m a uniquely talented senior global strategic sourcing & procurement manager respected and sought after for being a results-driven and people-minded leader.

In previous roles I managed 200+ Professionals Services, IT Services, and IT Consulting Suppliers with $16M-$18M+ spend while achieving $1.5M+ in savings each year by developing and maintaining an ongoing strategic category plan and negotiating favorable terms.

Iโ€™m a knowledgeable go-to resource to clients, colleagues, and supplier partners.

Former clients say the following:
โ€ขโ€œRandy stands out to me as an extraordinary person evidenced by his servant leadership, highly effective communication skills, & ability to push forward with professionalism & kindness.โ€
โ€ขโ€œHe has a keen sense of how to manage cost effectively while maintaining good relationships with suppliers & also maintaining service quality.โ€
โ€ขโ€œHis knowledge of corporate finance, procurement & vendor management was always a great advantage for our team in saving time & money while sharing the knowledge necessary to be proficient in each area.โ€

Former colleagues & suppliers say the following:
โ€ขโ€œHe consistently demonstrated his expertise in strategic sourcing & supplier management, while always keeping an eye on the bottom line.โ€
โ€ขโ€œHe is an excellent communicator, collaborator, & problem solver, & he always goes above & beyond to ensure that projects are delivered on time & on budget.โ€
โ€ขโ€œHe has a unique ability to understand the needs of his team members & provide them with the necessary tools, resources, & guidance to succeed.
โ€ขโ€œHis ability to understand the needs of a business, create & implement processes, & work collaboratively with cross-functional teams has been critical to his success.โ€

Key Strengths:

Servant-Leadership | Relationship Building | Strategic Sourcing & Procurement | Supplier Relationship & Category Management | Strategic Planning | Customer Success Services | Project Leadership | Process Improvement | Process & Procedure Creation | Problem Solving | Best Practice Development & Sharing | Training & People Development | Presentation Design, Creation, & Delivery | Quantitative & Qualitative Data Analytics | Cost Savings
