Tell us about your journey in Xoomworks
I joined Xoomworks 9 years ago as an SAP Source to Contract consultant. Since then, I have expanded my skillset into the procure-to-pay space and now deliver a variety of class-leading eProcurement tools where I fill project roles such as Project Sponsor providing project direction and governance, or as Solution Architect delivering the solution design. In my time at Xoomworks I have been involved in the delivery of over 20 eProcurement projects across a variety of countries and industries.
What do you like most about working at Xoomworks?
The people - at all levels of the company we have committed and knowledgeable people who always make themselves available to support each other.
Are there any projects that you are particularly fond of?
I have delivered multiple Source to Pay projects in the banking and finance sector where it has been really positive to see the success of the implementation, how the clients have become self-sufficient in managing the platform and where the clients have often then expanded their implementation into different locations or added on further modules.
Let’s talk about your team. Who are they and what makes them special?
I lead Xoomworks’ team of integration specialists who typically fill the Integration Architect roles on projects. The team have a vast amount of integration knowledge and experience and always show great creativity in finding solutions to meet client requirements.
What are your hobbies? What do you like doing in your free time?
I like to spend my spare time out on my mountain bike on the trails here in Yorkshire or further afield in Wales and Scotland. I try to get abroad to some real mountains each year, with Canada being my favourite destination, which has not been possible recently but hopefully will be soon!
