In Search of Talent: The Girl in Procurement

In Search of Talent: The Girl in Procurement


Organizations are only as good as the talent they employ, yet finding that talent can be a massive challenge. And although there may be plenty of qualified candidates, what if they don’t have that indescribable quality you’re looking for? What if instead you find it somewhere unexpected?
Greg Adams-Woodford and Kaili Barone have worked together at two companies over a span of eight years, first at Pearson, and more recently at the New York Stock Exchange. Greg and Kaili discuss how they met, and the challenges they faced once Greg identified Kaili—the girl in procurement who had no product management experience—as someone he wanted to add to his product team.
