    Episode #9 - Michael Suljak Talks Benefits of Collaborative Procurement

    Episode #9 - Michael Suljak Talks Benefits of Collaborative Procurement

    We were so fortunate to get the chance to speak with Michael Suljak for our 9th and latest episode of Nailed It!

    Michael is the VP of Strategic Development at Eastern Construction Company Limited and has an inspiring 25+ years of experience. Coming from a family of construction, Michael is a notable leader, having worked for well-known firms such as Eastern and Graham.

    With most of his time spent in Estimating, he talks about the contrast between the bidding process now versus when he was starting out, as well as his preference for collaborative procurement.

    Interestingly, Matt and Michael dive into the benefits of really getting to know people - and how technology has altered that - plus the difference the pandemic has made.

    We can't wait for you to listen and let us know your thoughts...
