GSA announces the winners of the strategic sourcing awards 2019

The GSA formally announced the winners of the GSA Strategic Sourcing Awards on Wednesday 27th November at the Sheraton Grand Hotel, London.

The GSA UK Awards ceremony is now in its sixteenth year, as the GSA continues to provide a platform to recognise and celebrate best practice in sourcing. The Awards are part of the GSAs continued mission to #ReshapeSourcing - a commitment to encouraging evolution and innovation in the industry. This reshaping sentiment was mirrored in the reshaping of the GSA Awards in preparation of a dynamic new era for our industry. 

Kerry Hallard, CEO of the GSA said "It's been a fabulous year for sourcing and that was clearly demonstrated by the breadth and quality of submissions received this year. It's clear that strategic sourcing is central to many business transformation programmes and has clearly moved beyond cost reduction to true value creation - as evidenced last night". 

Congratulations to all the award winners and nominees at this year's ceremony. It is through dedication such as yours that the sourcing profession continues to go from strength to strength.
