Sharon Morris: "very excited to be joining this dynamic and exciting profession"

The Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) has appointed Sharon Morris as its General Manager for Australia and New Zealand. She is currently CEO of the Mother’s Day Classic Foundation, Australia’s largest breast cancer research fundraiser, and will take up the role in late August 2019. With over 20 years’ experience in managing a wide range of projects in both Australia and other regions, she will bring with her a wealth of experience in the not-for-profit and membership sector.

“We are absolutely delighted that Sharon has decided to join CIPS in this key role at a really exciting time for the profession,” CIPS Group CEO Malcolm Harrison says. “We have chosen a proven business leader to take CIPS in Australia and New Zealand to the next stage of its evolution. Her leadership experience will bring with it new perspectives for our profession as she works alongside the procurement community to continue to build capabilities and strong networks for our collective future success.

“I’d also like to take this opportunity to pass on our thanks to Mark Lamb, who has driven CIPS forward in the region with passion and drive over his time with us, we wish him every success.”

Morris adds, “I am very excited to be joining CIPS and I am really looking forward to getting to know this dynamic and exciting profession. As I look across the business spectrum, procurement and supply is intrinsically placed to be a real change agent and driver for the greater good. Issues such as modern day slavery, sustainability and ethics are core not only for this profession but also for the wider society to address; and CIPS is positioned perfectly to drive that agenda forward – I can’t wait to get started.”
