While Sudy Bharadwaj's tenure at Aberdeen was short lived, he's moved onto an excellent position as Chief Marketing Officer and Vice President of Solutions Consulting at Informance, a software provider that offers a range of supply chain solutions for manufacturers. You can read about Sudy's appointment here. While Sudy was at Aberdeen, I enjoyed the direction he took the firm's research in, especially his willingness to explore sourcing trends in the middle market and direct materials. Even though his tenure was short lived, he certainly left an impact on the place.
Please join me in wishing Sudy the best of luck in his new role as he moves back over to the vendor community. Sudy joins some of the best names in the Spend Management analyst world who have left Aberdeen for new ventures and venues in the past year. Next week, I'll be talking about some fascinating findings that another former Aberdeen analyst, Paula Rosenblum, has come up with in a new research study focused on retail sourcing. Clearly, fact-based or not, the old Aberdeen brain trust lives on!
