Cordant Procurement fires up 2016 with new senior hire

Cordant Procurement, part of the £720 million turnover recruitment giant, Cordant Recruitment, has fired up the start of 2016 by hiring David Garrett as Director of Cordant Supply Chain & Direct Procurement.

David has over 17 years’ experience in recruitment and HR and was previously Associate Director of Procurement & Supply Chain with international recruitment company, Hudson.  Having worked and lived across three continents including Australia and the Middle East, he provides a truly global network of candidates and clients within the Supply Chain and Procurement market.

In his new role, David will help to develop and expand Cordant Procurement’s growth in the market and develop worldwide business opportunities for the recruitment consultancy, which is just marking its first anniversary.

David’s experience also includes working as a HR Director for a number of years, giving him a real understanding of the challenges faced by many businesses in attracting and retaining the very best talent - a growing problem for public and private organisations in the procurement sector.

Based just outside London, Cordant Procurement has now grown to a team of 11 made up of recruitment specialists, who are also experts in key industries and procurement professionals.

Comments Joanne Till, Managing Director, Cordant Procurement: “Bringing David on board as a new senior member of our team is a great way to really fire up the start of 2016 and drive our business forward.

“As well as David’s in-depth recruitment and HR experience, with the increasing globalisation of procurement his international experience is a fantastic asset.  I’m delighted to have him on our team.”
