AIG achieved a first and notable victory when Charmaine Tan (Regional Sourcing Manager – Marketing Services, Asia Pacific) won Future Leader of the year at the prestigious Procurement Leaders Awards 2015.

More than 900 of procurement’s elite came together to network and celebrate achievements from the past 12 months in London, where judges determined that Charmaine “clearly made a very great impact early on in her career.” More than that, they said she is “a person of rare ability and drive who is demonstrating results across a new contracts framework.”

As the youngest, and first Asian woman, recipient of the Future Leader Award, Charmaine's win is commendable. Notably, this award is testament to the efforts undertaken by the 16-month old AIG Asia Procurement Team to be at the forefront of global procurement practices. Through the construction of an innovative contractual framework between AIG and its marketing agencies, Charmaine was able to drive topline contribution, making genuine difference to the business.
