Boston, MA – Sept 25th, 2018 – SpendLogic Group announced earlier today the expansion of it’s Professional Services practices, with the launch of the Enterprise Travel & Services (ETS) practice. Rich Brooksbank, a 25+ year veteran to corporate sourcing & procurement organizations will take the role as Practice Principal.
“We are thrilled that Rich has agreed to join SpendLogic Group,” commented Mike Cadieux, Managing Partner of SpendLogic Group. “Rich and I have know each other a long time, and I’ve been trying to get him on our team since the day we launched the company. His knowledge of Travel and related services, will be an immediate value proposition to our clients.”
Brooksbank, formally with Sony and Publicis Groupe, where he was responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars in travel related spending and 8-digit savings, has a long history of designing and deploying global enterprise travel policies and programs. “The key to creating a solid corporate travel program is to match the company culture with managements expectations for governance and value,” Brooksbank said. “I’m excited to jump in and start working with SLG clients, as well as new prospects.”
The ETS practice is being designed to provide a full range of services to clients ranging in size from SMB’s up to the largest Enterprise clients, and will range from retainer based vendor engagement & negotiations up to and including full Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) of corporate travel program management for SMB’s to Midsize organizations looking to buy versus build in house.
“This new practice simply expands on our existing mindset,” added Cadieux. “Back office services, and particularly Sourcing & Procurement are truly at a tipping point. The future is a buy versus build world, that is clear.”
SpendLogic Group is based on the premise that communal intelligence gain by 3rd party practioners is much more valuable then internally staffed teams. “How are internal travel managers, supposed to keep up with changes in vendor solutions, while being able to gain intelligence about current market conditions when they are only exposed to one companies spend. Internal organizations have no real benchmarking ability, where as SpendLogic Group has real-time aggregate level cost visibility that can be easily translated to multiple clients gaining value quickly. We are looking forward to future and building for next evolution of enterprise sourcing.”
