I provide procurement expertise as a Senior Consultant and design and implement program management approaches with clients who are world-leaders in the telecommunications (Deutsche Telekom) and financial services industry (Zurich Financial Services). These program management approaches aim to increase utilization and transfer eSourcing best practice knowledge into the client procurement organization.

Success of the programs are measured mainly in terms of $ volume managed via eSourcing methodologies. Apart from the program offerings, procurement organizations also benefit from consulting me in the preparation of complex negotiations, selecting/implementing an SRM solution and building a support services infrastructure.

OTHER
To whom it may concern,

I currently work as a self-employed Strategic Sourcing consultant with my base in Hochheim, close to Frankfurt, Germany.

I've played very critical roles during the last 8 years in larger MNCs like General Motors, Siemens, Total, BMW, Benteler, Behr, Moeller, Zurich Financial Services/Farmer's and currently Deutsche Telekom to rollout eSourcing solutions for their strategic sourcing function globally.
I provide procurement expertise and design and implement program management approaches with clients who are world-leaders in their respective industry. These program management approaches aim to increase utilization of existing tools and their ROI as well as to transfer eSourcing best practice knowledge into the client procurement organization. As part of these programs, I deliver complete sourcing event management services for eRFXs and reverse auctions to buyers and procurement leadership including change management concepts and sourcing trainings.

On other engagements, I have also supported organizations with their SRM, procurement transformation and savings acceleration initiatives.

I am a highly motivated buying professional, enjoy very much working with people/teams on introducing innovative solutions and have 8 years of extensive experience in global strategic sourcing, eSourcing, development of support services, organization-wide eSourcing program management, change management, project management, eProcurement, and Category Management.

I'd be very keen to discuss your sourcing services needs with you. I also invite you to visit my LinkedIn profile at http://de.linkedin.com/pub/norman-schuelein/1/57b/65b .
