eXceeding welcomes new Head of Delivery

Aarun Bains will oversee our team of Procurement Consultants
By Kirsty Harvey on 25 January 2021

We are really excited to welcome Aarun to the ever-growing eXceeding team. Aarun Bains is a seasoned procurement transformation consultant with a broad experience in a number of sectors including oil and gas, real estate, legal and more recently, central government.

Why are we so excited about Aarun?

Firstly, at eXceeding we are mindful of the part we have to play in supporting diversity in our team, and with a recent statistic stating that only 25% of women in procurement are part of the senior management team, we are pleased to buck that trend.

Aarun’s impressive background has seen her take up senior procurement roles in a variety of globally recognised organisations such as Accenture, Linklaters and BT, as well as within UK public sector organisations such as Defra and the Department for Transport.

What makes Aarun so good at what she does?

Aarun brings with her a great understanding of client relationship management and programme delivery.

Whilst embedding transformation in business can be challenging, she prides herself on managing large scale change projects within procurement and, most importantly, making that change stick in the organisation.

Her vast subject matter expertise in the procurement space lies within end-to-end procurement transformation, procurement visioning and strategy, category management implementation and sustainable procurement.

What about when Aarun is not working?

Outside of the day job, Aarun enjoys interior design and upcycling furniture and is looking forward to testing her skills on her new home in London. We may even ask her to apply her unique style to the eXceeding office!

When she’s not at home, she really loves travelling, citing Japan and Sri Lanka some of her favourite places to visit.

And she’s also put the lockdown period to good use, testing her strategy and problem-solving skills by learning chess – the only problem now is she is a little addicted!

What does Aarun think about her new role at eXceeding?

Aarun joins eXceeding at a particularly exciting point of growth, as we embark on a number of new projects across the UK, within both the private and public sectors.

When we asked Aarun what appeals to her most about the Head of Delivery role at eXceeding, she answered, 

I’m really looking forward to working collaboratively with colleagues from across the organisation to scale the business and provide clients with tailored procurement solutions. It’s an exciting time to be part of a growing business like eXceeding.

As a strong, approachable leader we certainly think that her open personality, great stakeholder management skills and assertive nature will ensure success for our clients.
