Brooklyn Vendor Assurance’s vision is to be a dominant leader in the vendor management space. Currently, there is no framework to define optimised vendor management. Continuous growth from organisations resulting in outsourced services causes challenges to maintain transparency. Constant requirements for industries to adapt and improve to meet the social demands of topics including sustainability, governance, diversity and inclusion, require this visibility from suppliers, to ensure all outsourcing is compliant with the companies’ values. Therefore, businesses need a dedicated team, an optimised process framework, and a robust operating model. Ensuring this visibility is crucial to comply with the ever-changing regulations. 

"Within this role, I plan to continuously develop the product, utilising market research and optimise iterations to delight existing and new customers of the capabilities of Brooklyn as a platform. Additionally, I will focus on accomplishing our key accreditations including SOC 2, becoming compliant and accredited to a high standard”.
