SpecialityPresident, Global Supply Chain B.V and CPO, Henkel
Bertrand Conquéret is Henkel‘s Chief Procurement Officer (CPO) and President of the Henkel Global Supply Chain B.V. located in Amsterdam.
Bertrand looks back to a career in different countries and divisions at Henkel in which transformation and continuous learning was a constant companion: transforming procurement into a global and leading “Source to Pay” organization, managing global roles in Human Resources, bringing together the IT and Shared Service Center departments to form Henkel’s Integrated Business Solutions, starting up and leading the transformation journey of Henkel’s Global Supply Chain since 2015.
In line with Henkel’s sustainability strategy, Bertrand was one of the six founding CPOs of the Together for Sustainability (TfS) initiative, kicked off in 2011 with the aim to develop and establish a global standard for environmental, social and governance performance of global chemical supply chains. Being a member of the steering group since its beginnings, Bertrand was elected as TfS President in May 2019 to further enhance growth, global and regional collaboration and foster the sustainability impact of the 26 member companies and their associated procurement teams.
Bertrand is one of the two co-founders of the Sustainable Procurement Pledge (#SPP) created end of 2019, inviting all procurement managers worldwide, academics and stakeholders to pledge and commit to sustainability principles to boost impact, capabilities, leadership and sustainability mindset across all procurement activities and decision processes.
