The Chartered Institute for Procurement and Supply (CIPS) has released its Procurement Power List, which recognises those leaders in the profession pushing the field of procurement forwards. 

CIPS and Supply Management asked for nominations from a panel of experts and created a long list of candidates, including the CPOs of FTSE 100 organisations and significant public sector organisations.  These names were debated during a panel with leading executive search agencies and industry experts, to create a list of 30 names, plus 10 ones to watch.

The following criteria were used for nominations: 

  • Employment status. Candidates must be employed practitioners and not working as interims or consultants. They must be of a significantly senior level (CPO and above) and have a successful track record from previous roles, as well as being their current role long enough to have achieved significant outcomes.
  • Geography. CPOs based in Europe, or those who work for global organisations but have responsibility for European procurement teams.
  • Internal influence. They sit in a prominent place in the company hierarchy and are actively involved in board and ExCo level discussions in their organisation.
  • External influence. They have non-executive board positions in listed, private or public bodies.
  • Influencing the wider profession. They share their knowledge with the profession via trade magazines, blogs, social media and speaking at events.
  • Developing others in the function. They give back to more junior procurement and supply professionals, for example mentoring or speaking in schools.
  • Depth and breadth of experience. They have responsibility for other areas of the business beyond procurement and supply.
  • Their relationship with CIPS makes no difference to their inclusion, or not, in the list and they do not have to be CIPS members.
  • No professional with an official connection to CIPS can be on the list, for example, board members or committees. 

The Procurement Power List will change and evolve annually.
