Martijn ten Kroode has been working since 2011 as Procurement Manager at Pon’s Automobielhandel in Leusden, The Netherlands, one of the business units of Pon. “At Pon’s Automobielhandel, I am responsible for all procurement besides the cars,” Martijn says. “This includes procuring support services, parts and accessories to ultimately be able to sell cars. For example we spend a great deal of money on media and advertising agencies, IT services and hiring in external staff. In addition, I also coordinate the Pon Procurement Board – a consultative body in which we meet with the various procurement managers of other Pon companies. From this board, we carry out Pon-wide projects with which we bundle our procurement needs and in that way, as a result of the larger volume, increase our purchasing power.”
