Head of Procurement
University of Manchester
Kevin worked in NHS procurement from school progressing through a variety of roles before joining the HE Sector as a category specialist in 1997. He became the first Head of Procurement at the ‘new’ University of Manchester in 2004. Since then procurement has been heavily involved as the University has evolved and grown into the largest single site campus in Europe. Supporting the University’s ambitious social responsibility goals Kevin has encouraged the sector to follow the University’s lead around responsible procurement. This leadership led to Kevin being appointed as the Chair of a newly formed sector wide Responsible Procurement Group.
