Cyril Pourrat

Managing Director & CEO, BT Sourced

I joined BT Group Procurement in October 2019 and a team of highly talented, passionate and successful people with a strong record of delivery. 

BT is an amazing company and it's a hugely exciting time to be part of its transformation, in which digitization is a driving force to deliver long term growth value and outstanding customer experiences.

Since joining BT I have established BT Sourced, a standalone procurement company, drawing on the best technology and people to speed up and simplify the way we manage BT’s third party spend worldwide. I have created the Digital Garage, rapidly digitizing our procurement organisation to implement best of breed technologies, and working collaboratively with UK start-ups to co-develop products that help us leapfrog the competition.

Prior to being part of BT, I was Chief Procurement Officer respectively at Sprint (US) and Saudi Telecom (STC). Before joining STC, I garnered 15 years' experience in Europe's telecom industry, lastly serving as Senior Vice President of Procurement Excellence at BuyIn, (the procurement joint-venture of Deutsche Telekom and Orange). I also held senior leadership positions with Orange in France and UK.
