On this most recent episode of the Public Procurement Leaders podcast, host Raj Sharma interviewed Jack Pellegrino, Director of the Office of Purchasing and Contracting for the County of San Diego about what excites him about his job, his organization’s response to the wildfires that impacted his county, and the advice he would share with his peers.
Procurement leaders who invest 30 minutes in this interview will gain valuable perspectives from the conversation, as Jack discusses how he and his organization engage in continuous learning and how they persevered through the recent natural disasters. He shares recommendations for a robust p-card program that can help in emergency situations, and describes how his mission supports both business needs and stakeholder objectives.
