Richard Masser

President, Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS)


Richard started his procurement career as a stock controller with the Wolseley Group before moving into the automotive industry to join Autogem. Here he played an integral role in developing key supplier relationships and the company’s lean approach to manufacture and supply chain management. He then joined Eurospace Furniture PLC, where as Head of Logistics and Operations he was responsible for overall site function, including strategic supplier relationships, procurement and supply chain management.

At the age of 31 Richard became the youngest serving director of the company and was instrumental in building the organisation further to take on an increased global presence.
Richard left the security of his directorship to set up Quantum Global Product Solutions - designing, sourcing and supplying specialist products to a diverse global customer base. Adopting a lean approach, the business developed from only the promise of a modest customer order at the onset to a profitable £25m turnover inside five years.
