CPO of the Year 2015

The CPO of the Year award recognises a remarkable commercial leader who is making a demonstrable difference to business results, having regard to the particular circumstances of different industries, budgets and the diversity of procurement team size and experience. 

The CPO of the Year will be an outstanding leader, a prominent contributor to their business, lead delivery of high ROI, and exceed performance expectations. 

The Judging Process
Nominees are assessed against The Faculty’s X Factor Procurement Leadership Framework which is based on a demonstration of strength and balance across four key areas:

1. Functional Excellence
2. Leadership Attributes
3. Commercial Leadership
4. People Leadership

The Award is adjudicated by an independent panel of judges, chaired in 2012, 2013 & 2014 by Dr Karen Morley of Karen Morley & Associates.

Nominations are welcomed:
• From direct reports, peers, suppliers or CPOs themselves.
• For CPOs based anywhere across the Asia-Pacific

Nominees do not need to have the title ‘Chief Procurement Officer’ to be eligible – they should occupy the most senior procurement role in the business.

All fields are required.

Relationship to the Nominee

Please note: Nominees do not need to have the title ‘Chief Procurement Officer’ to be eligible – however, they should occupy the most senior procurement role in the business.

While all nominations are welcomed, to be eligible to be shortlisted for the Award, a survey response must be received from the CPO (a self-assessment) and their line-manager at a minimum.

CPOs may elect to complete a 360 degree assessment involving direct reports, peers and/or suppliers. Nominated CPOs will have the opportunity to select this upgrade to their participation. 

There is NO COST to participate in The CPO of the Year Award - a charge, however, is attached to completion of the optional 360 degree review and feedback component. This will require the approval of the CPO nominated.
