(June 8, 2020) - RATP Dev USA, the North American subsidiary of the global transportation provider, announces the appointment of Andy Manthei, former Director of Strategic Sourcing at BNSF Railway, as the Chief Sourcing Officer at RATP Dev USA.
“I am very happy to introduce as a part of my Leadership Team, our newly hired Chief Sourcing Officer, Andy Manthei,” said Arnaud Legrand, RATP Dev USA, CEO. “Andy will implement a formal centralized procurement program that supports efforts to reduce cost by leveraging our buying power, and provides measurable benefits for the organization, among other strategic purchasing initiatives.”
Prior to joining RATP Dev USA, Andy has had an extensive career in sourcing and procurement. At BNSF Railway, where he held tenure for over 30 years, Andy led both internal sourcing teams and contracting professionals to manage and negotiate purchasing contracts.
