I'm very happy to announce that Lisa Reisman, my wife, and co-author of the blog MetalMiner will be joining me more often on these virtual pages as a Contributing Editor to Spend Matters (as part of the trade -- in addition to agreeing to make dinner and clean up the house -- I'll be writing on her blog as well). Lisa has co-written quite a bit with me over the years, including a number of posts on Spend Matters where are domain expertise has overlapped, such as this one on ImportGenius. While Lisa's particular expertise is metals trading and global metals sourcing, she's also a Six Sigma Blackbelt and can talk shop with just about any manufacturer on shop floor topics. Previously, she worked with Arthur Andersen and Deloitte in the consulting field and before that she was a metals trader. Please join me in officially welcoming Lisa to Spend Matters as Contributing Editor. Look for Lisa's first post in this new capacity later today.
