Eileen Keane joins Care Connect as our Procurement Manager replacing Peter Cubit. Eileen has over 25 years’ experience in procurement, supply chain and quality systems across a number of industries.
Eileen has spent the last five years at Health Purchasing Victoria where she was responsible for managing improvement programs across procurement and supply chain for Victorian public health services. This included working collaboratively with 80+ public health services to put into place procurement policies for the health sector, as well as developing a framework for ongoing supply chain improvements. Prior to working in public health, Eileen held senior positions in both quality and procurement in various industries including automotive, logistics and aerospace. She has led the development of successful procurement and supply chain strategies in the Asia Pacific and Africa regions encompassing a broad range of categories as well as forming strong relationships with suppliers to achieve goals.
As a qualified Six Sigma Black Belt she has a passion for improving processes and outcomes – a great asset to have as we continue to build our collaborative relationship between your organisation and ours.
Eileen is looking forward to working with all of our providers and continuing to build mutually beneficial partnerships. Eileen will be touching base with our provider network over the next few weeks. Please feel free to contact her if you wish to chat beforehand.
