Following an extensive recruitment process, the Board of Procurement Australia is delighted to announce the appointment of Steven Chaur as the organisation’s new Chief Executive Officer, to commence on 29 April 2024.

Procurement Australia Chair, Glenn Patterson said: “We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Steven as the incoming CEO of Procurement Australia, as we enter another exciting era of transformation and growth.”

With an impressive executive career spanning leadership roles in ASX-listed companies, Private Equity Firms, and multinational organisations, Steven brings a wealth of experience in delivering sustainable value and growth across diverse sectors.

Renowned for his high capacity to foster relationships, challenge norms and lead innovation, Steven’s experience extends to organisational cultural development, change management, strategic thought leadership, global supply chains, and strategic procurement.

“Steven’s expertise in consumer foods and beverages, agricultural food production, and specialised B2B industrial products will be invaluable to Procurement Australia, its members and suppliers,” said Mr Patterson.

“As we welcome Steven to the organisation, I also take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank Brendan Hoare for his exemplary leadership as Procurement Australia’s Interim CEO over the last 12 months.”

“Under Brendan’s steady leadership, Brendan refined the key operating elements of the business, implemented a culture of shared leadership, built on existing strengths and established a path to a leaner, more focussed and cohesive business. The entire business is exceptionally grateful for his substantial contributions.”

Looking to the future, the Board is confident that Steven is the right person for the CEO role, as the company enters a phase of transformation with its new 3-year Strategic Plan and IT Strategy and Roadmap on the near horizon.

Steven is looking forward to connecting with the Procurement Australia team, meeting with suppliers and engaging with our dynamic membership base.
