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...

Companies struggle to build workforces...

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...

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

It was by a happy accident. I started in the packaging engineering industry. In that industry, I played the role of purchasing by sourcing my own customized packaging. In the process of combining engineering design with negotiation my...

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

Interestingly, it was both purposeful and accidental. The accidental side is that my first internship was with a CIO of a publicly traded engineering firm. The CIO, a family friend, hired me that summer to help him complete post-acquisition cost reduction efforts. They had acquired 50+...
