“Michael has more than 30 years’ senior procurement experience across the UK and North America, in the NHS, retail and manufacturing sectors, with a focus on leading innovative procurement programmes.
Currently Managing Director at NHS London Procurement Partnership, Michael previously spent six years with Trading Partners, the e-auction specialists who operated out of offices in London and Chicago. Following this, his NHS procurement experience has been extensive, with four years as Head of Procurement at Great Ormond Street and eCommerce work at the NHS Purchasing and Supply Agency. Michael was NHS LPP’s Commercial and Business Development Director between October 2011 and November 2012, before returning temporarily to the private sector to provide consultancy advice, leading and overseeing a doubling of e-auctions for ASDA as one of his many successful projects.
Seeing the move towards greater cross system working in the health service, Michael returned to the NHS in 2015, bringing with him his passion for collaboration and innovation between national and local networks. He joined NHS Business Services Authority before then accepting the role of Managing Director at NHS LPP last year, where he and the team are supporting members to respond innovatively to the opportunities and challenges of the changing procurement landscape. Most recently, he has provided procurement support to the NHS England and NHS Improvement team as part of the COVID-19 response.
Michael is a champion for learning and development, driving forward the NHS LPP Academy, as well as supporting the PSDN network across London and wider to help guide the next generation of procurement professionals.”
