I am pleased to announce that George Dimitriadis has agreed to join the Procurement Doctor Editorial team. George is a Procurement and Management professional who has led, directed and supported hundreds of negotiations in Europe and the USA with a variety of companies, ranging from top management consultancies and manufacturing giants to the small and medium businesses in their supply chains.
George is the author of the “Negotiation Hypercube” book and director of Metagora Ltd, a Procurement management consultancy. He holds an MSc in Supply Chain Management, a BA in Management and is a full member of the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (MCIPS).
George has worked in direct and indirect Procurement in the energy, automotive and other industries, and also runs a diverse personal business portfolio. Apart from negotiation, he is also involved in category management, procurement value optimisation, cost reduction and procurement transformation projects. His goal is to support the continuous development of the Procurement profession, and its effort to be recognised as a trusted value partner and a cradle of innovation by the wider business. He also promotes strategies and systems that automate the operational tasks in the business and allow professionals from all disciplines to work on high value-added activities that they enjoy and are motivated about.
The Procurement Doctor blog is for procurement and supply chain professionals to share best practice in order to improve the profession and its reputation. Our mission is to provide thought leadership, whilst remaining fearlessly independent and pragmatic, and will search out best practice across our profession without an ulterior motive or hidden agenda. We also aim to provide a bridge to academic research in order to ensure that practitioners benefit from the latest thinking, and academics keep an eye on the realities of being a practitioner.
