Speaker: Thomas Reimann
Thomas Reimann studied industrial engineering with technical focus on mechanical engineering at the University of Kaiserslautern and has worked for 20 years in various companies in the energy, oil and gas, mechanical engineering and plant construction industries. His 13 years of experience in Procurement are complemented by sound expertise in mechanical engineering, process engineering, production, maintenance, project business, M&A, controlling and accounting.
According to his experience, the clear idea of the added value, that Procurement can contribute to a company, is quite different, depending on the department or company one asks. A professional Procurement department can do much more than just write contracts with suppliers, convert purchase requisitions into purchase orders and achieve some cost savings by the way. This is where the challenge usually begins.
