This month’s cover story sees us discussing the road to procurement transformation at a rapidly growing company with Chris Shaffer, Senior Director of Procurement, Facilities & Biomedical Support at EyeCare Partners…
“ECP is the most clinically integrated eye care organisation of its kind,” Shaffer explains from his St Louis office, “with a high-focus on patient outcomes and exciting growth potential, this was an amazing opportunity for my family and me. I came on board with them March of 2020 – two weeks before the world stopped turning due to COVID-19.”
Shaffer has been at EyeCare Partners for just over two years, leading the Procurement function as well as Environmental Health and Safety and Facilities. He also leads a growing Biomedical Support function, charged with end-to-end medical equipment lifecycle management across the organisation.
