A CIPS Supply Management Award is the most prestigious recognition a company or individual in the procurement and supply chain profession can receive. The Awards ceremony was held in September and was the opportunity for you or one of your team to step on stage at the ceremony to accept an award.
This year's chair of judges was Andrew Newnham, Group Procurement Director at ITV. He was joined by Jim Carter, Head of Contracts and Procurement Operations at Network Rail, Sainsbury's Head of Procurement Nicki Perrott, and a selected panel of other senior professionals from the world of procurement and supply.
Hays Procurement was our platinum sponsor and QinetiQ Commerce Decisions was the official technology provider for the judging. The shortlist was revealed in the summer and the winners were announced at the black-tie gala ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 11 September.
