Our CEO Ingrid De Doncker, the self-professed red shoed Dorothy on the yellow procurement brick road, has delivered again!
In 2015, her procurement consultancy company won the Micro Company LEO West and North Cork award after only 1 year in the business. Now 3 years later, the Irish SME Business awards 2018 has recognised the woman behind the slogans “value beyond savings” and “elevating the procurement profession for growth” with the inaugural accolade of “CEO of the Year 2018″.
If you know Ingrid, you will also know she is not shy in expressing herself but this time she was speechless for a split second. Her first reaction was:
“Oh God, a Belgian lady getting an award for CEO of the Year in Ireland, that is wonderful and says as much about Ireland as a country to do business in as about me: inclusive, flexible, open minded and hard working. It is such an honour and I can only credit this award to the wonderful people in the iDDea team, our customers, our partners, our mentors, our supporters. Let’s take it to Europe now!”
