“I love my new challenge at Strivesource. The team is fantastic, it really feels like a family and everything we do is client focused. I enjoy working with clients to understand their requirements and finding a solution to support them on their journey. What stands out is the fact that we have lots of engagement with suppliers and clients where we partner to spot new opportunities. When I see the outcomes of my work, such as a solution being implemented or a client getting the result they were looking for, it gives me such a sense of pride. Prior to joining Strivesource I have worked across several procurement categories which has exposed me to different experiences and each came with their own set of challenges. Throughout my career I have worked with some great procurement professionals and I’ve learned so much from each and every one of them. To describe my new role at Strivesource in 3 words: exciting, challenging and rewarding.”
