I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve joined tealbook in a new role as Advisor.
I was most recently a senior procurement executive with GE responsible for shared sourcing tools and systems across GE’s ~$60B direct and indirect sourcing spend. I know the field of procurement is ripe for disruption through technology and analytics and I’ve decided to join tealbook as an Advisor to see it through first hand.
“Doug brings great insight and the tremendous industry experience required for us to scale. We are thrilled to have access to his network and support to advance the procurement transformation.”—Stephany Lapierre, CEO at tealbook
tealbook brings a solution to several very serious challenges in procurement today. It allows buyers to share their supplier information and preferences instantly with all necessary colleagues and stakeholders. It gives suppliers a mechanism to keep critical capabilities current for all of their customers, and it creates communities of buyers and sellers to collaborate in ways that aren’t even considered today.
As a former CPO I’ll be directly involved in helping tealbook accelerate its growth and refining the long term product roadmap. Stephany and I share the same vision and know an outside viewpoint will be critical to delivering operational excellence on tealbook’s continuing journey.
