Celebrating Rock Stars in Marketing Procurement

Over the past several years, I’ve had the opportunity to meet, get to know and work with an outstanding group of marketing procurement professionals. Most of these leaders have become deeply involved in helping their marketing colleagues source critical marketing technology tools. So I think it’s appropriate to recognize a few of the professionals who are leading a real transformation in marketing procurement.

Here are nine rock stars in marketing/marketing technology procurement that I genuinely admire and respect:

  • Luis AlvarezLuis is currently the Global Strategic Sourcing Manager at 3M Company. He’s been with 3M for more than 20 years, serving in several supply chain and operations capacities. Luis is a Six Sigma black belt, and he brings that perspective to his sourcing/supply chain management work.
  • Michelle Banks Michelle is currently a Senior Manager in Charles Schwab’s Corporate Vendor Management group, supporting the marketing, corporate communication, Schwab Charitable and digital analytics teams with their strategic sourcing needs.  She has an MBA, CPSM and is a certified Green Belt. Getting her start in advertising, Michelle’s fostered a decade-plus marketing procurement career across multiple industries.  She also founded The Darin C. Banks Foundation, a youth education and mentoring non-profit that’s awarded over $20,000 in college scholarships.
  • Barry ByrneBarry is the Global Head of Marketing and Retail Procurement at Adidas. Earlier in his career, Barry held various marketing procurement positions at Anheuser-Busch InBev, Carlsberg Group and Diageo. Barry is also the owner of “The New Face of Marketing Procurement” discussion group at LinkedIn.
  • Kathy CapozziKathy is a marketing procurement business partner for Bayer Consumer Health. In this role, she focuses on Amazon, ecommerce, nutrition/digestion and dermatology.
  • Tina FegentTina runs Tina Fegent Consultancy and was one of the pioneers in the marketing procurement space, having worked in it for more than 25 years.  Having set up marketing procurement teams at both client and agency side, she now runs a marketing procurement consultancy for marketers, procurement professionalsand also agencies.
  • Jill RobbinsJill is the Senior Director of Global Procurement (Indirect Goods and Services) at Elanco. In this role, she leads a global team of sourcing professionals responsible for more than $1.5 billion of spend across indirect goods and services categories, including IT, marketing and sales.
  • Dana SmallDana is the Senior Category Manager and Head of Commercial Strategic Sourcing at BioMarin Pharmaceutical. She has been working in the marketing procurement space for more than a decade.
  • Amanda SparksAmanda is the Senior Category Team Lead for Marketing and Consulting Services at ABB. Amanda’s expertise spans both procurement and marketing. She was a Media Manager for Food Lion earlier in her career.
  • Sabrina TraskosSabrina oversees global commercial procurement for AstraZeneca. She manages $1B+ in marketing spend.

Sarah Scudder has spunk. Sarah Scudder is a go-getter who has gone out and got.


Sarah is the youngest executive to ever serve on the board for the Print Services and Distribution Association (PSDA). Sarah is the brainchild behind ProcuRising, the cutting edge magazine that gives voice to industry leaders, writers, and entrepreneurs in the marketing and procurement space.

Sarah hosts thought leadership ProcuremenTalks around the country and coordinates events for the Global Women Procurement Professionals (GWPP). Sarah speaks at several annual sourcing industry events and hosts multiple webinars. She also co-authors a column for the Sourcing Industry Group (SIG)’s Future of Sourcing publication and Institute of Supply Management (ISM)’s “Inside Supply Management” newsletter.

Sarah won the Print+Promo’s Trailblazer Under 40 award. Sarah also won the Print Services & Distribution Association (PSDA)’s Member of the Year award.

But none of the above matters.  What matters is that Sarah Scudder treats everyone with respect, and it is her desire to make the world a better place. She is well on her way.
