Eva Wimmers, Senior Vice President Group Procurement at Deutsche Telekom, explains how Procurement Leaders helps to inspire and shape their global strategy.


Deutsche Telekom knows all about connecting people and making conversations happen all over the world.

Its 230,000 strong workforce serves more than 132 million customers in 50 countries via 32 million fixed network lines and 17 million broadband lines. In 2012 the company generated 58.2 billion euros in revenue.

It’s no coincidence that the telecom giant’s Senior Vice President of Group Procurement, Eva Wimmers, places such an emphasis on using global communication to help the company excel when it comes to procurement.

“The international aspect of Procurement Leaders is hugely important to me,” says Eva. “Procurement is not something that only happens in your own country. You need to be aware of the conversations happening all over the world.”

Eva is one of many Procurement Leaders members who tap into the collective knowledge and intelligence of a worldwide community of senior procurement officers.

“Procurement Leaders’ value is in its network of senior executives,” says Eva. “I know that if I have a challenge I can pick up the phone and call a peer to brainstorm solutions and be inspired. It enables us to benchmark ourselves against other companies from similar and different industries. It all allows me to be part of an informative global discussion.

“There may be other organisations with similar agendas to Procurement Leaders, but most often they are not truly international.”

Each year Procurement Leaders runs several high profile event and conferences around the world. These popular forums bring together key influencers and trendsetters with the aim of generating debate, ideas and increasing collaboration.

“Whatever country you are in you know you will be attending a high calibre event if it’s organised by Procurement Leaders,” says Eva. “Its commitment to relevance and quality of the speakers as well as participants is why it’s so respected and trusted by people in our profession.”
