Digital Transformation Seminar Day 2 Speakers

Session 1

Panel Discussion moderated by Sarah Scudder, President, Real Sourcing Network (RSN)

How Procurement Can Win the Hearts and Minds of Marketers

Panelists:

  • Tarek Alaruri, COO & Co-Founder, Fairmarkit
  • Joseph Ancil, Business Transformation, Sedgwick
  • Michael Arpino, Director Procurement, Cantor Fitzgerald
  • Manuel Villarreal, Sr. Director, Procurement, Novo Nordisk

The benefits of having procurement involved in sourcing marketing services are well established. In many companies, sourcing professionals and marketers work cohesively to increase innovation in marketing, improve the effectiveness of marketing spending, and reduce supplier risk. But in too many companies, the relationship between procurement and marketing is still tenuous at best.

This panel will explore how sourcing pros can build a more collaborative relationship with marketers. In How Procurement Can Win the Hearts and Minds of Marketers, a stellar panel of experienced procurement professionals will discuss how they’ve nurtured an effective working relationship between procurement and marketing. During this fast-paced conversation, our panelists will share:

  • The challenges they encountered in developing a collaborative relationship with their marketing colleagues . . . and how they successfully overcame those challenges
  • How they’ve nurtured and grown their relationships with marketers
  • Where the relationship needs to go in the future

Session 2

Tech-Enabled Tail - Anthony Mignogna, Vice President Strategic Solution Engineering, Corcentric 

Technology isn’t a magic bullet, but it is an enabler. More specifically, it enables Procurement groups to eliminate tactical burdens and turn their attention to new, more strategic initiatives. The best solutions can even generate strategic, sustainable valuable from the most tactical areas of spend. In this presentation, we’ll explore technology is changing the way businesses address their ‘tail’ and empowering Procurement to manage exceptions, automate tactical processes, and make unmanaged dollars into value generators. Whatever your definition of tail spend, you’ll gain valuable insights for bringing it under control.
