The Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) has sponsored an award to highlight success at a young age in supply chain in the oil and gas industry.
Presented at this year’s Supply Chain Seminar in Aberdeen, hosted in partnership with Oil & Gas UK, CIPS and AECC earlier this year, the Young Oil & Gas Supply Chain Professional of the Year award recognises exceptional achievement in oil and gas procurement and supply chain management.
This year, Andrew Sorrie from Wood Group PSN won, for the outstanding work he and his team carried out in collaboration with Shell to improve efficiency and cost savings.
The award is sponsored by CIPS to encourage more young people into the procurement and supply chain profession and to highlight success in the oil and gas sector. The Supply Chain Seminar was the perfect arena to present the award and to tackle issues amongst the many organisations attending to discuss cultural change and greater collaboration.
Phil Broughton, Corporate Relationships – Energy and Oil & Gas sectors at CIPS said: "This award is an ideal opportunity to showcase the talent of young supply chain professionals and for promoting the next generation, whose fresh ideas have the potential to transform existing work practices and contribute to improving cost competitiveness and innovation in the sector.”
As a result of these achievements, and award, Andrew Sorrie has been awarded a place at the Scottish Enterprise Oil & Gas Future Industry Leaders Programme, designed to bring together the brightest and best from across the industry to learn the new leadership behaviours needed for the future of the industry in Scotland.
