Charlie has always been one of the best skilled sourcing executives I have ever worked with over my 26 year career. He built a global network based on global based on trust, loyalty, kpi, all grounded in execution and meeting company goals. I have always followed Charlie’s guidance and recommendations as a supplier and as a businessman. Often I reach out to discuss topics of the day and the ever changing sourcing landscape. As the world changes from analog to digital, then supply chain will change in an unprecedented way. Charlie is a great person to help guide, teach, and consult on the needs of tomorrow versus where we are today.
Charles Kaliman is a natural leader with extensive global sourcing experience. I had the pleasure of working with Charles at Sears Holdings Corporation. I could always depend on Charles for his expertise in all facets of supply chain management. Charles elevated the SHC product by choosing and working closely with quality vendors, ensuring that they provided the best product at the best price and on-time delivery. Charles exceeded expectations every time. He can create a strong sourcing strategy from nothing or elevate the performance of an existing sourcing/procurement team.
To improve our product development and sourcing needs, we turned to Charlie to leverage his extensive experience in the area. He exceeded our expectations on a daily basis and was pivotal in securing overseas production for our clothing in addition to identifying inefficiencies in our processes which increased profits and scalability. With Charlie, we not only received a consultant, but his services felt more like a partnership and he truly cared about our business and its prosperity going above and beyond the scope of work initially agree upon. I would highly recommend him for any business looking to improve their product procurement process.
