As a co-founder and owner of Procurement&Co, Denise shares leadership and direction of the company’s innovative procurement strategies. Denise brings to each assignment experience gained from working in the interior design and procurement industries for over 26 years.
Prior to co-founding Procurement&Co, Denise worked for over ten years as a vice president and director of procurement at GS Associates, one of New England’s premier FF&E procurement agencies. Denise rose within the ranks of the firm by providing her clients with exceptionally innovative procurement strategies, leading them to request her services specifically on multiple, repeat engagements. Directing a team of eight procurement professionals, her collaborative management style and rapport with outside stakeholders led to measurable successes in the forms of consistent on-time deliveries and savings of 5 – 20% on each project. Her reputation for innovation and rigorous internal cost controls garnered her most recent employer the largest project in Boston’s Skyline and the highest single-engagement fee assignment in the company’s history.
At Procurement&Co Denise also leverages her eight years of experience at several interior design firms. At these organizations she developed and wrote specifications for FF&E that translated designers’ visions into documents that could be bid uniformly by multiple vendors. To better serve her clients she compiled extensive project manuals with customized drawings, plans, finish schedules and budgets that defined successful execution for all vendor parties involved. Denise provides this same level of superior service in documentation, management and budgeting to all of her current customer partners.
