I'm excited to introduce yet another new professional voice to the Spend Matters community -- Sherry Gordon. Sherry is President of the Value Chain Group and is world-renowned for her expertise in the field of supplier performance management. She is also extremely well versed in general Spend Management technologies, particularly in the areas of supplier risk management, spend/supply portfolio analysis and supplier development. She sold her last company, Valuedge, to Emptoris and then served as Vice President, Supplier Performance, for the organization.
Sherry will be contributing on a regular basis to Spend Matters, sharing her insights across a range of topics. We will also be working together to pursue deep-dive reviews of vendor offerings in supply risk, supplier performance and supplier information management. Look for Sherry's first post, Putting a Supplier Focus on Ford's New Focus on Spend Matters later today. You can also read Sherry's thoughts on her own Value Chain Blog. I'm thrilled to be teaming up with Sherry and am sure you'll find her ideas -- and her understanding -- of how to tie supplier management issues to broader business themes quite unique and perceptive. Check back later today for Sherry's first post!
