CASME facilitator joins ProcureCon Indirect West line-up
CASME is set to return to ProcureCon Indirect West as a Media Partner on September 16-18. At the three-day conference in Arizona, CASME will have complimentary procurement intelligence reports available for delegates, with categories including Marketing Services, Professional Services, Legal and Travel as well as a number of benchmarking reports.
Jeff Devon, a senior indirect procurement executive on the CASME facilitation team, will join the line-up of over 70 speakers. The conference agenda consists of keynote seminars, through to peer-led workshops on the latest challenges facing procurement teams and advice on how to develop strategies for the new digital age.
Jeff Devon will moderate “Deploying Next-Gen Procurement Tools” with a panel of leading practitioners including Michael van Keulen (Global Procurement Director, Lululemon Athletic), Kim McGlinn (Head of Global Strategic Sourcing & Travel, Workday), and Phil Morgan (Senior Director, Global Strategic Sourcing, Electronic Arts). The panel will discuss the use of traditional procurement tools, as well as e-Procurement, spend analytics, supplier management portals and other new products coming on stream, and consider how practitioners can take advantage of the new technologies.
Increasing regulatory requirements are forcing companies to monitor their suppliers in greater depth than ever before. In a session entitled “Implementing a Comprehensive Supplier Risk Management Program”, Jeff Devon will join Joseph Martinez, (Chief Procurement Officer, BNY Mellon) and Josh Lemke (Vice President, Global Head of Sourcing, WeWork). They will discuss whether organisations are equipped to identify potential disruptions, the importance of having a comprehensive program in place to mitigate supply disruption, the monitoring of suppliers and the risks that can impact the supply chain.
