About Us!

In 2008 Wharton school did a roundtable discussion with 30 European CPO’s and found that their no.1 priority for the next 5 to 10 years was training and developing their people. Enter Purchasing & Procurement Center Inc. (Actually we did not know about this roundtable discussion when we started Purchasing & Procurement Center, we found this later :-), but it’s right on the dot)

With our motto: “Transforming getters to world class strategic buyers” we focus on training & building procurement teams to world class standards. Whether Full Supply Chain & Procurement Academies or training programs, tailor made competency development programs based on job roles, high impact e-learning and certification, we build procurement executives skills to world class standards.

Employing world class people & professionals, you are serviced by literally best in class:

artinArtin Vaqari

Chief Executive Officer

As the CEO, Artin is the ‘connector’ that glues all the pieces and people together. He provides the direction for the company and focuses on coming up with new & innovative ideas that help clients build their procurement teams to world class standards.


senaiSenai Janting  

Director – Support Services

She’s the one that runs the day to day operations of the company and makes sure that things run smoothly. Her gift is to make things look easy to do and focus people in the same direction. Without her there would be a total mess and people in the company would wonder aimlessly.


billyBilly Jane Baliwagan

VP – Procurement Learning & Development

It is Ms and it is not the same as Michael Jackson’s “Billy Jean” song. It is Jane, like in Tarzan & Jane. She’s the lady to contact if you want to get something done quickly and consistently. Her warm personality will make you think that you already know her for many years, eventhough you may have just met her.


marilynMarilyn Cornejo

VP – Procurement Development

If you really want to know what it takes to sort out any issues and get all your team to agree to new  initiatives, Marilyn is the one to contact. She’ll ensure that all your team is going to be onboard enthusiastically if and when you work with us. Her gift is to ‘motivate’ your people to become part of the solutions, rather than the problem. Especially if one needs helps from the higher echelons within the organization.


SAGHEER1Sagheer Rajper

VP – IT & Technology

Sagheer ensures that all runs smoothly on the technology side. But his gift is to see things beyond technology and to focus on the ultimate objective to achieve. As one time he pointed out to the CEO, when the CEO was introducing a new idea: “Why are you telling us to do all these things. What is your objective? What do you want to accomplish?”. Since that time Sagheer ‘flies’ as soon as the objective is given to him and makes it happen.
