Welcome to the latest Sourcing Industry Landscape podcast, hosted by Dawn Tiura.

Kristian O’Meara is Vice President of Market Solutions at JAGGAER, a global provider of source-to-pay solutions.

O’Meara’s journey into sourcing and procurement began with an internship for a franchise that proved to be the foundation for his career. In an industry where the conversation is dominated by change, O’Meara notes that the ability to be a good listener and an active partner will always be a valued skill.

Key Takeaways:

  • Mentorship and professional development are essential to career growth and success.
  • The ability to be a good listener is just as important as the ability to accept and manage change.
  • O’Meara says that procurement professionals must engage in opportunities to grow their knowledge and think outside the box to bring continuous value to customers.
