How did you get into this field – was it purposeful or by accident? 
It was for sure not purposeful, as I initially decided to obtain a bachelor degree in Business Economics at Tilburg University in order to become auditor eventually after graduating. That has been the plan ever since going to high school… until I figured during my studies and first internship at one of KPMG’s technology advisory teams that rather started working at a...

How did you get into this field. Was it purposeful or by accident?  
Accidental! I had just exited my first company, named EcoSearch, which was an environmental mapping company. We had a SaaS (Software as a Service) solution in the mid-nineties, a decade before that term was even coined! I was sent information by a friend about FreeMarkets, the original architects of eSourcing, and their full-service model for reverse auctions. It was clunky...

How did you get into this field. Was it purposeful or by accident?

I was finalizing my engineering internship at Solvay in a production facility in Belgium, when I decided to submit my resume to the centralized HR database of resumes without applying to any specific role. A few weeks later, a recruiter called me to discuss an analyst opportunity within Solvay’s newly created centralized...

How did you get into this field. Was it purposeful or by accident?  
I have always been interested in why, how and with what criteria professionals make career choices.  In college and as a young professional I often heard friends and colleagues say, “this job is OK until I figure out what I want to do.”  I wanted to find a way to pre-emptively help employers and candidates make great choices. Companies struggle to build workforces...

1) How did you get into this field? Was it purposeful or by accident? 

I started my career as a geneticist for AstraZeneca at 18, so I would say that the first half of my career was not at all aligned with procurement and sourcing. However, as that role developed, I received more exposure to it and realized I found it more rewarding than bench science.  In 2013, I made the conscious...
