A European procurement executive

This executive had made excellent career progress, working for large international organisations. His most recent appointment had been the Head of Procurement for a significant theme park development. He was uncertain about his next move, whether to take a challenge outside ‘project’ procurement. We debated alternatives, discussing various sectors such as, retail, transportation, public sector, construction and so on. Ultimately, he decided to undertake advanced academic studies, prior to pursuing his career in managing procurement on one-off projects taking place anywhere in the world.
