As an innovative, agile, results-focused professional with more than 15 years of success managing complex programs related to IT procurement and asset management, I approach short- and long-range strategic planning, supplier management, and policy development with a persistent and collaborative intent. My track record demonstrates repeated achievement in building new programs from the ground-up, driving process improvements, gathering and measuring performance data, and motivating teams to persevere through challenges. I specialize in procurement strategy including supplier selection and ongoing performance reviews, contract negotiation, and corporate compliance. Additionally, I possess a history of effective cost containment. Currently, I am accountable for enhancing the administration of financial, physical, and contractual aspects of Starbucks’ $400M North American equipment portfolio by augmenting the organization’s Retail IT Asset Management framework and related processes. Previously, I worked with many different areas of Microsoft in a program management capacity to reduce OPEX spend, manage a Capital portfolio, enhance vendor relationships and compliance, and ultimately support the organization in delivering outstanding customer experiences while enhancing bottom line growth. I’m a champion of continuous innovation, and throughout my career, I have demonstrated an aptitude for understanding business requirements, translating them into actionable items, and guiding teams to complete the full scope of work in a timely, economical manner. I’m an organized, steadfast problem solver with a knack for analysis and strategy who is skilled at guiding initiatives involving multiple departments and businesses. From developing RFPs to liaising with clients, vendors, and internal stakeholders, I can effectively communicate in a manner that inspires consensus and positive outcomes.
