“Profile of a Purchasing Professional: Buyers’ dollar volume responsibility has doubled in the last six years. Plus they are more technical and highly educated…”
“…Today’s purchasing professional is a little older. has been on the job slightly longer. and is responsible for spending a lot more dollars than a comparable buying pro of 10 years ago.
Today’s purchasing professional is much more likely to be a woman than 10 years ago?or even five years ago. He/she is more likely to have chosen purchasing as a career than in the past. His/her dollar volume responsibility is twice as high as it was in 1997 and three times higher than in 1992.”
