Maxine is an expert at identifying future supply chain requirements and at leveraging purchasing spend so as to get maximum value for money for every penny spent. She avoids getting tied into disadvantageous contractual terms and makes sure that a company does not pay for more than has been received. Her key skills include gaining a competitive advantage in all negotiations and managing purchasing risks effectively. Aside from her technical competencies she also has a Bachelor’s degree in a business discipline that is related to supply chain management. Right now she would like to work for an exciting company where there is scope to challenge and develop her skills further.
