SAN MATEO, CA – July 13, 2016 – Coupa Software, a leader in cloud-based spend management, has announced that industry-recognized Chief Procurement Officer (CPO) and international executive Leslie Campbell has been appointed to its board of directors. Campbell is an accomplished business leader with more than 30 years of multi-disciplinary experience in the fields of finance, technology and publishing.

Named one of the world’s top CPOs in 2011 by Supply Chain Digital, Campbell most recently served as CPO for Reed Elsevier, a leading provider of professional information solutions, where she transformed their procurement function after joining in 2007.

Campbell and her team were recognized by Procurement Leaders™ as the “Best Procurement Team” in 2011, and again in 2012 for “Best Transformation”. In 2013, Ariba (SAP) honored Campbell with its Lifetime Achievement award.

“Leslie is a procurement pioneer with first-class expertise that will certainly help propel Coupa to the next level,” said Rob Bernshteyn, CEO of Coupa. “We believe her strong international experience, especially in the area of creating high performance, cross-cultural teams that deliver measurable results, fits Coupa’s DNA and will be extremely valuable as we continue to grow around the world. I am confident that Leslie is going to make an important and positive impact on our company.”

Previously, Campbell led the indirect global procurement team and the global platforms procurement team at Dell Inc. as its vice president of worldwide procurement based in Austin, Texas.  She initially worked as vice president and general manager of Dell’s Global Segment Business for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and was based for five years in Europe.

For the preceding eight years, Campbell led the Corporate Purchasing organization at Oracle. Prior to Oracle, she was licensed as a CPA in California and spent nearly eight years with KPMG in Audit, and in the International and High Technology Tax Practice. Campbell earned a bachelor’s of arts degree in Business Administration from the University of Washington.
