Malcolm Harrison joined CIPS in July 2018 after a broad and varied career spanning over 30 years.  Having experienced many different sectors, geographies and senior leadership roles, Malcolm is passionate that Procurement and Supply is the key differentiator for any organisation.

In 2015, Malcolm joined the Cabinet Office of Her Majesty’s Government as Chief Executive Officer of the Crown Commercial Service, overseeing an annual spend of more than £13 Bn on common goods and services across the UK public sector. He also had responsibility for UK Public Sector Procurement Policy and for supporting the UK Government’s initiatives with SMEs.

Having established and developed many Procurement functions over the span of his career Malcolm wants to ensure CIPS continues to help drive the profession forward, ensuring education is at the heart of today’s – and tomorrow’s – agenda for procurement and supply professionals. 

Ensuring CIPS remains as the global voice for the profession is critical to Malcolm’s future vision for CIPS and will help to ensure that CIPS can continue to represent the profession at the highest levels.
