Next big steps for Procurement & Supply Chain Academy

Since 2011, we have grown organically to a company with a strong financial structure, as confirmed by external IFPSM audit. Our customers say we have disrupted the corporate procurement and supply chain training market – we thank them gracefully for these comments.

We have grown rapidly with a strong team and over 150 blue chip clients. Now it is time to take the next giant steps forward. We have chosen to partner with Levine Leichtman Capital Partners. LLC is a middle-market private equity firm with a 36-year track record of successfully investing across various targeted sectors, especially education.
