Frederic Khalil, VP, Head of Source to Pay and Corporate Services at Guardian Life, speaks of how Procurement Leaders helps add value to his procurement team.


The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America is a Fortune 300 company with a long history stretching back to 1860.

Amongst the largest mutual life insurance companies in the United States, the New York based firm employs more than 5,400 people nationwide and heads a network of over 3,000 financial representatives in more than 80 agencies.

Frederic Khalil, VP, Head of Source to Pay and Corporate Services at Guardian Life, utilises his company’s membership of Procurement Leaders to ensure he and his team stay at the forefront of the procurement function.

“It is always an evolving journey in procurement,” explains Frederic. “It is important to always stay in the know, obtain fresh ideas and to strive to continuously upgrade the skills of yourself and your team.

“Procurement Leaders provides a solid platform for knowledge building and transfer, helping to upgrade the core skills, critical to success. They are fantastic facilitators that focus on how to make sure their members get the best value from being part of their network.”

Frederic places great significance on how Procurement Leaders brings ideas and research from other sectors and fields into play to help add value to members.

Procurement Leaders think outside the box,” says Frederic. “It doesn’t just focus on procurement. It also looks at other critical areas such as leadership and negotiation skills - bringing in excellent speakers, often from outside of procurement, to do this. This gives members a broader perspective on a wide range of opportunities and challenges and helps you develop as a leader.”

Based in North America, Frederic warmly welcomes the global nature of Procurement Leaders’ community.

“In both the financial sector and the procurement function you have to take a global approach,” says Frederic. “I am an avid believer in that. Procurement Leaders provides that worldly perspective and facilitates a global connection. Through Procurement Leaders I can validate how well we are doing in comparison to others in all industries and markets across the world, not just the regional financial sector. That’s a huge advantage to have.”
