Dorthe Bergholdt is the VP of Global Sourcing with BW Offshore. She leads a global team of 25, spread over Category Management, Contract Management, Sourcing and Vendor Qualification. The Sourcing team was built over the last 3 years and has been put in place to ensure a global leverage of the Company’s spend as well as professionalising the Vendor Relationship Management. The team’s main accomplishment over the 3 years include implementing a comprehensive risk based Vendor qualification process, significantly increasing “Spend under Management” by establishing Umbrella and Frame Agreements with critical vendors and for high frequency purchases and creating a Category approach to complex spend areas, thereby ensuring a holistic view on the SC, including a tight involvement of technical experts in the processes.
Dorthe will share the learnings and tools the team has used to get a strong handle on the risk imposed on BW through their vendors yet enabling a nimble SC.
