"There’s an art to creating and helping shape our clients’ visions and moving them toward excellence—and I view myself as an artist in what I do."

What I do

I serve as part of our North American SAP Sourcing and Procurement Practice leadership. I lead our efforts in creating a market of new opportunities in growing our sales and delivery footprint in the SAP Sourcing and Procurement space.

I particularly love projects that involve large, global enterprise clients. For me, it represents an opportunity to exert my influence in shaping their strategic direction and progressing toward excellence in sourcing and procurement. I actually feel like Picasso and take personal pride in creating the vision of what an optimized S2P ecosystem looks like. I view myself as an artist in what I do.

A day in my life

A typical day for me involves constant threads of collaboration regarding client business development opportunities, delivery challenges requiring some level of engagement and deciding which to engage directly and which to delegate via referral to other colleagues within the practice and across our networks. It also involves a continuous schedule of calendar events ranging from practice development, recruitment and talent management, partner collaboration (with SAP Ariba) and managing existing client commitments and scheduled meetings, follow-up on activities and client interactions.

Our employee-centric culture is what I love most about Accenture. I appreciate having the ability to be in control of and shape my career, and the opportunity to continuously learn and grow. I take tremendous pride in working for Accenture; there’s nothing dull about what we do.

As an Accenture alum who returned to the company after leaving in 2007, many of the people I previously hired, mentored and worked with have progressed to new levels of career success—that’s something I take great pride in. It’s a testament to the culture, where learning and growing is encouraged. One thing has remained the same: Accenture’s culture and core values and commitment to diversity—in fact, the commitment is even greater than before. When I’m not working, I play golf—and pay homage to my family for their patience and support!

“Coming back to Accenture as an alum, one thing has remained the same: Accenture’s culture, core values and commitment to diversity.”
