Prior to becoming an Auditel Strategic Procurement Specialist and Client Relationship Manager, Ali spent the past 10 years in Oil and Gas and Aerospace sectors doing Procurement.
Ali’s entry into Procurement started back in 2008 with a business startup, which ended in 2010 after realising that without a better understanding and control of the supply chain the business would not succeed, so went back to do a Masters in Purchasing and Supply Chain Management.
Ali’s career has taken him through the breadth of Tactical and Strategic Procurement roles:
- Buyer (Cradle to Crave)
- Aftermarket spares Buyer and lead Expeditor
- Project Buyer
- Sourcing Specialist
- Senior Sourcing specialist and Category Manager.
- Procurement Manager
Across the past decade, Ali has implemented change programs across Procurement departments, whilst also delivering significant cost savings.
Working with Manufacturers and Engineers
With the UK firmly embedded in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, in which disruptive technologies and trends such as the Internet of Things, Robotics, Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence are changing the way we live and work, the need for manufacturers’ procurement functions to embrace new ideas and technologies within their supply chain has never been greater.
We recognise that as a manufacturer it is not financially feasible for you to employ full-time procurement specialists across the full spectrum of materials and services you purchase. However, by engaging Auditel at the right time, independent external help that works alongside your existing operational teams, can level the playing field – ensuring you achieve the very best value for money.
Auditel have worked with many manufacturers over the years and have a deep understanding of the sector’s challenges and needs. Our procurement expertise can advise on implementing the latest technology and can unlock cash that once identified, will be redirected back into your control. It is then up to you to choose how to utilise it, either by delivering additional dividends to shareholders or reinvesting it back into the company’s growth via new research and development of new products.
