Linda's Biography

Linda was one of the first Chief Procurement Officers in a financial services company worldwide and thinks of herself as a founder of professional sourcing and procurement for the broader “services sector.” Leveraging her banking background, her role extended beyond vendors and she structured and negotiated all third party relationships across the bank and became a director in companies in whick the bank acquired an equity stake. A combination of experience, expertise and a curious mind led Linda to being widely recognized as the expert in third party risk management in the financial services sector and beyond. In her words “the combination of professional procurement and effective third party risk management squares the circle for high value third party lifecycle management.”
