Vance Checketts to head Aberdeen Procurement & Supply Management Practice

with one comment

I was surprised and pleased to learn Vance will be announced shortly as Aberdeen’s new leader for its Procurment and Supply Management. He strengthens an already strong team there. Spendmatters broke the news here.

Vance and I worked together for years at Oracle. During the .com boom days Vance was ‘CEO’ of Oracle’s Exchange.Oracle.Com business. He spent many years as leader of Oracle’s Procurement product management organization. More recently, Vance was top gun in a global overlay sales group – a key expert who not only interacted directly with prospects but also advised regional sales forces on trends in the Procurement market.

To date, one of the most impressive things I can say about Vance is that everyone we both know likes, admires, and respects him.

It will be great to see how the new and very much energized team at Aberdeen can do in the Procurement analyst market. Given the inexplicable lack of investment from other research firms, perhaps Aberdeen will take a chokehold on research and become the clear #1.

Good luck Vance!
