Eddie is the East of England LGA’s resident procurement expert and he has over 15 years private sector  experience buying a range of products including books, newspapers, instruments and even stamps!

Since joining St Edmundsbury Borough Council in 2006 on a what was only supposed to be a 4 month contract, Eddie has ended up working on public sector procurement projects in just about every area of local authority spending, including Transport, Treadmills, Telecoms and Tyres. Whilst at East of England LGA, Eddie has run the Procurement East Network, developed the Regional Contracts Register service and helped authorities in the East of England to deliver over £8M in cashable savings. He also represents the East of England on the Society of Procurement Officers National Executive and the LGA's National Advisory Group for Local Government Procurement.

Eddie's mix of private and public experience is proving increasingly valuable to EELGA member authorities who need help with potential commercialisation of their services.

In his spare time, Eddie attempts to stay fit by playing squash and hockey regularly, although his equal enthusiasm for the post-match activities in the bar also serves to prevent this!
