Breaking News – Alison Littley to leave Buying Solutions

Having published our essay about Buying Solutions not two hours ago, and totally coincidentally, we now understand that their Chief Executive, Alison Littley, is moving on.

Alison has been there for around 4 years after a successful career in organisations including the Mars Group and Diageo. There's been much speculation as to the future of Buying Solutions, so I'm not altogether surprised by this, and I'm sure she will pop up in another top job soon; she's an impressive character and we wish her well whatever she chooses to take on next.

I understand that David Shields will look after the Liverpool Buying Solutions staff (most of them) and Sally Collier the Norwich based team in the short term.  While I still think, as per our earlier post, that Buying Solutions will survive in some form, this does support the idea that we may see significant changes in the organisation as we move into the new world of more centralised Whitehall procurement.

    She told us back at OGC Women’s Day in March 2007 that she was planning to leave eventually to head up a charity next. Is that the case?
