Here we are with issue 10 of CPOstrategy.

Our cover star this issue is Michael Leiken, Senior Director, Spend Management at Lending Tree, as we explore the procurement transformation of America’s largest online lending marketplace.

LendingTree is a growing business that needs a procurement department that can bend and flex with every new acquisition and expansion of its operations and so Leiken was brought in to oversee a a root and branch overhaul that has seen procurement taking on a massively strategic role at the ever-expanding LendingTree.

Elsewhere, Sören Petsch, Former VP of Global Procurement at Alliance Data Card Services, examines how procurements risk language is evolving and looks closely at how data is different. 

We also hear from John Vass, Global Industry Lead at Tradeshift, as he takes a deep dive into the shifting perspective of procurement technology and how it aligns and influences the strategic shift in procurement. 

Finally, with 2020 in full swing, we asked procurement executives all over the world what they consider to be the biggest challenges facing procurement this year. From market uncertainty to standardisation of processes, find out in The Big Debate.
