SIG Appoints Edmund Zagorin, Arkestro’s Founder and Chief Strategy Officer to Advisory Board Post
Leader in Predictive Procurement Orchestration to Sponsor and Participate in Upcoming SIG Procurement Technology Summit, April 16 – 19
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, April 12, 2023 – The Sourcing Industry Group (SIG), a leading global association for sourcing, procurement and risk professionals, has named Edmund Zagorin, Founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Arkestro, as a member of the SIG Advisory Board. In addition, Edmund will be hosting a breakout session at the SIG Procurement Technology Summit, April 16 – 19 at the Omni Amelia Island Resort, Amelia Island, FL.
“As the procurement industry becomes further steeped in digital transformation, we’re seeing greater adoption of predictive procurement, which allows for faster, more accurate decision-making,” says Edmund Zagorin. “As a member of the SIG Advisory Board, I look forward to ensuring that procurement teams work with high-quality data as the foundation for performing analysis, determining patterns and predicting future trends and outcomes.”
“Predictive procurement is vital to the future of procurement, but traditionally procurement teams have had to deal with multiple databases filled with both structured and unstructured data, making it hard to consolidate all of this information, analyze it all in one place and derive reliable insights,” says Dawn Tiura, SIG CEO & President. “We are delighted that Edmund Zagorin has joined the SIG Advisory Board and look forward to his unrivaled expertise and contributions.”
