Editorial Board Member to Chair CIPS Africa Board

Douglas Boateng.jpgDouglas Boateng, SmartProcurement editorial board member and CEO of advisory company PanAvest International, has been elected Chairman of the Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply’s (CIPS) Africa Strategic Advisory Board.

This follows CIPS’s adoption of the One Africa strategy, under which the procurement body’s sub-Saharan Africa operations will be managed from South Africa.

"We are pleased to have Douglas assume the role of Chairman of the Strategic Advisory Board. As CIPS continues to rapidly grow and evolve on the continent, we believe that his appointment will further provide strategic leadership, regional penetration, operating ethics and integrity," said CIPS Africa Managing Director Andre Coetzee.

“It is an honour for me to be elected chairman of the Africa operations. CIPS has proven to be one of the most ethically-driven and fastest rising value-adding professional organisations in the world,” said Dr Boateng.

He will be working closely with the regional Managing Director and each member of the CIPS Board to build a successful body that will further help to drive the procurement and supply chain management professional developmental agenda in support of the Africa Union’ vision of an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa.

Most importantly, notes Dr Boateng, he will use his chairmanship to promote African supply chain management’s support of the eight United Nations Millennium Development goals:

1. Eradicating extreme poverty and hunger.
2. Achieving universal primary education.
3. Promoting gender equality and empowering women.
4. Reducing child mortality rates.
5. Improving maternal health.
6. Combating HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases.
7. Ensuring environmental sustainability.
8. Developing a global partnership for development.
