Spend Matters 50/50: Paladin Associates – A Provider To Watch in 2015

100 companies - 100 days

We announced here and here our two (not ranked) lists: Spend Matters 50 To Know and 50 To Watch firms for 2015/2016. In the first case, this is our view of the 50 solution provider type organisations in the procurement industry that every senior procurement leader should be aware of and understand. The 50 To Watch are the up-and-coming firms  - those with interesting and relatively new solutions for our market. The 50 To Know are the key organisations in our industry that procurement executives need to have on their radar.

Having announced the lists, our US colleagues are now featuring each of the 100 firms in turn with an article giving an overview of each, with some headline Spend Matters thoughts on them. So on this site we will be giving you a brief extract of the US article, plus adding our own comments where we have anything useful to add from a European perspective. Sometimes we do, sometimes we don’t!

Here is what our US colleagues had to say about Paladin Associates.

"Paladin Associates is a small yet unique consulting and managed services provider in the procurement market. The average tenure and experience of the consultants working with Paladin makes the typical Big 5 engagement team look like children by comparison ... From leveraged contracts to strategic sourcing to interim staffing work, Paladin has numerous business lines for its size. Yet the offerings reflect the diverse background and interests of its partners and associates."

 

Paladin is one of the firms in our lists that is almost entirely North America based; we haven't come across them in Europe as yet anyway.  But you can read more about what our US colleagues have to say here.
