Episode 76: Tapping Into the Thoughts of Today’s CPOs with Tarek Alaruri and Greg Tennyson

By Kelly Barner | August 3, 2022

The most interesting conversations at in-person events are rarely started from the stage. Instead, they take place quietly, one-on-one, in the coffee line or during lunch. Procurement has been on a two-year hiatus from these networking opportunities, so now that events are back on the calendar, what are CPOs talking about?

In this episode of The Sourcing Hero podcast, Host Kelly Barner welcomes Tarek Alaruri and Greg Tennyson, both from Fairmarkit. Tarek is their Co-founder and COO, and Greg – a return guest to The Sourcing Hero podcast – is their SVP of Strategy and Procurement.


In this conversation, Tarek and Greg provide up-to-the moment thoughts and advice about the complexities procurement and supply chain professionals face today:

  • What they are hearing between sessions at the in-person events they have recently attended
  • How economic pressures, such as record-high levels of inflation, change the playing field for companies
  • Approaches procurement professionals can use to stay educated and inspired enough to have informed, action oriented discussions
