Drs. Koreman, G.J.E.

Guido Koreman is PhD candidate at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering.

Academic Background

Guido Koreman, 20 working experience, of which 15 in procurement related activities.

After my study and military service, I started working at Philips Lighting, for whom I worked in several countries a short time. From my final position at Philips Electronics as a purchasing manager I went into consultancy for the next five years, before I accepted a position as purchasing director at Ballast Nedam N.V.

After nine years it was time for me to move on to further help introducing Best Value Procurment, a topic I started in 2008. Currently I train and coach teams in the Best Value Approach, which helps them to proliferate themselves and efficiently get to cooperation with their clients or suppliers. I’am A+ certified and member of the Dutch 'BVP Board', which certifies candidates in this methodology.
