“I am a commercial specialist with over 30 years’ experience. I have extensive experience of commercial contract management, category management, global sourcing and supplier relationship management. Over the years, I have worked for a number of blue-chip companies, including Boots the Chemist, Rolls Royce and Experian.
I joined HMRC four years ago as the Head of Commercial Contract Management responsible for managing HMRC’s portfolio of contracts with annual spend of £1.5bn per annum.
I am a passionate supporter of the need to manage our contracts and suppliers to ensure they deliver the services we need to achieve our goals. To deliver value beyond that what was originally contracted, whilst minimising risk throughout the supply chain. My team is responsible for the commercial management of contracts and suppliers post contract award, including contractual obligations and deliverables, opportunities and risks throughout the supply chain. I am also responsible for leading HMRC’s Strategic Supplier Relationship Programme.”
