IRRI staff wins international award

Hiram Gomez, Jr., senior manager at the IRRI Supply Chain Services, was awarded Supply Management Professional of the Year by the Philippine Institute for Supply Management (PISM) at the Supply Link 2013 International Conference.

This is the highest individual award in the supply management profession, with the board of judges coming from the private sector, the academe, and the government.

Hiram won over other finalists for the award that included Goodyear Tires' ASEAN logistics director Accenture's head of procurement.

Because of the award, Hiram becomes a member of the Society of Fellows in Supply Management and was conferred the title of Diplomate in Supply Management. The group serves as a resource for the government in implementing trade policies, such as the National Single Window program, in preparation for ASEAN Free Trade Area.

The awarding event was held on 6 March 2013 and was attended by Cesar Purisima, Philippine secretary of finance, and Thomas Derry, CEO of the Institute for Supply Management in the USA.
