The winners of the Successful Procurement Change award for our work in the Strategic Transformation Programme – very proud! Congratulations to our procurement team who were recognised at the New Zealand Procurement Excellence Awards last week.
Stuart is a passionate procurement leader keen to drive change and explore new possibilities for both himself and his team Watercare. Having commenced his procurement career in the financial services sector, Stu moved to the UK, where his love affair with procurement within the water and water services business took hold. He rose through the ranks with Veolia from a role as a Procurement online Coordinator, through Buyer and Senior Buyer roles in the UK, to Regional Purchasing Manager with responsibility for South East Asia based in Taipei and Singapore.
In 2011Stu returned to New Zealand, securing his current role at Watercare. His work there has obviously been outstanding, with the Watercare Procurement team recently being announced the winners of the ‘Successful Procurement Change award’ in the NZ Procurement Excellence Awards.
