James Meads has a unique perspective thanks to a 16-year career that took him around the globe. During that time, he held a corporate procurement role in the automotive and consumer goods sectors, taking him to the UK, Germany and Africa. Then, in 2019, James set out to start his own business that focuses on offering simple, easy-to-understand procurement solutions to solve complex problems.
You’ll find optimism, engagement and fun in posts from James. Indeed, part of his mission is to break away from the corporate procurement model, full of over-engineered processes, bureaucracy and resistance to change. As a procurement leader, he sets himself apart by focusing on enabling his clients with best-of-breed digital procurement technology (ProcureTech).
In addition, James hosts The Procuretech Podcast and is a co-founders of Proctopus, a UK-based procurement networking and events group.
