Jeffrey H. Palmer, C.P.M. (Lifetime)

Jeffrey H. Palmer, C.P.M., is Corporate Purchasing Manager with ClearOne Communications (formerly Gentner Communications).Mr. Palmer is a national speaker and has received wide acceptance from an audience in New Orleans that was sponsered by NAPM, where he received a 4.1 rating out of 5 points possible.He relates first-hand experiences from three industries (the aerospace, biotech, and communications industries).He is an advocate for supplier training, where his purchasing team is fully empowered as certified instructors.Ask yourself this question, "We train to certify ourselves, why not train to certify our suppliers?"His documented total cost approach is currently being used at Grayhound Events Services, HyClone Laboratories, and ClearOne Communications, but he reconizes that many people have been contributors to his presentation.His approach crosses over the traditional departmental boundary lines, elevating purchasing visibility to the total organization, rather than just the special interest groups.He has been quoted in Supply Chain News (SCN), an article by Carolyn Heinze in OCTOBER 2001, entitled, "Implementing Plan B Coping With Changes In Shipping After The Attacks"
Mr. Palmer strongly believes purchasing must be a strategic contributor if they are to be top performers.We must do more than provide formal feedback from measureable data, we must make buyer and supplier training convenient, His strategic total cost directive is zero defects, zero late shipments, reduce lead-times, and get more engineering research from our suppliers.He is an advocate of second sourcing and purchasings' early involvement in product development, since 93% of defects are caused from single sourcing.
He has 25 years of experience in contract negotiations, material planning, capital spend, price cost analysis, long-term contracts, web site recognition for world class suppliers.In addition to his role as Corporate Purchasing Manager, he understands, and has lived the lives of Senior Buyer and Buyer/Planner.Mr. Palmer has first hand experience in cross-departmental team negotiations, exceeding the CAPS cost savings study as top performer, both as a team player and as team manager.He authored the supplier certification procedures, and helped his company overcome compliance issues in the purchasing section of ISO9001 to the 1994 standard.
Mr. Palmer has a BS degree in Speech Communication from the University of Utah and is a lifetime Certified Purchasing Manager.He has served on the board of directors of NAPM-Utah, while at the same time, was a strategic member of the professional development committee to help make buyer training convenient and job related.
