Breaking news – Neil Deverill leaves CIPS Council

We are of course famed as the procurement blog with the latest news from the world of procurement and supply chain management. Today's scoop features Neil Deverill, ex CPO of Philips and Anglo-American and a very eminent member of the profession, who (I am personally sorry to say) has parted company with the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply Council.  Apparently there were potential issues over a conflict of interest, and Neil told me he was 'disappointed' to be leaving Council, where he represented the South of England.

Looking at the current membership, he was certainly one of the most experienced and widely known members of Council, and I am sure he will be missed.  He is also a blogger (he's even won awards), but his work is in a members only area of the Procurement Leaders website, so I can't link to it.  Just as well, I can do without the competition....!
