Managing Supply Risk is Essential for Procurement

Dave Crow photoDave Crow
Vice President of Sales North America

Historically, managing risk in the supply base was relegated to a simple check-box of credit-score. The growing complexity of standards and supply chains in combination with societal expectations means there is now a far greater expectation for the establishment, measurement, and active monitoring of risk. In this interactive session, Dave will explore the drivers of risk, the size of the challenge, and best practice approaches to energize your risk program.

Dave has over 15 years of supply chain and procurement experience with Global 2000 companies. His career spans various aspects of supply operations, working with companies to solve problems affecting procurement, sourcing, contract management, and risk management. Dave’s focus has been in areas of procurement solutions, customer success, software implementation, consulting, and sales.

As Vice President of Sales for North America, Dave brings his expertise to help enterprises improve supply management practices and accelerate riskmethods’ global expansion. Dave has previously worked at IBM, Emptoris and Seal Software.
