Nigel Ransom

Head of Procurement Services

Throughout my career, I’ve been fortunate enough to work across a diverse range of sectors from automotive and aerospace through to food manufacturing and retail.

As a management consultant, project manager or change specialist, I’ve worked with organisations large and small to assist with their business development, process redesign and improvement, change management and IT.

When I’m working on a change programme, I enjoy seeing that my input makes a difference. If there’s a tangible environmental benefit as well such as helping a business to be less wasteful or to use less energy, for instance, that’s even better.

I enjoy the challenge of simplification; of helping businesses to do things quicker and to make better use of technology.

An engineer by background, I started work in the aerospace sector where I spent time working in computing, analysis, design and programming. I subsequently moved into the consulting sector, working on large-scale outsourcing and procurement programmes for firms such as KPMG, Atos Consulting and State of Flux. I also worked as Head of Indirect Purchasing at Hain Daniels, a major food producer.

Whatever the job or context, I like to take a hands-on approach. Never shy of getting into the detail, I’ve got a wide range of experience of leading and developing teams to deliver strategic, Board-level targets and cost savings.
