4PX Consulting was founded by Paul Coppens at the end of 2020 and specializes in strategic purchasing for supply chain. The name has its origins in eXcelling in Procurement – Processes – People and organization. The fourth P then refers to myself.
Paul has built his experience within one of the largest healthcare multinationals in the world (Johnson & Johnson) where he grew from a local purchaser of packaging materials to a senior director with global responsibility for setting up purchasing processes as well as improving supplier reliability.
One of the “special” projects that bear his signature is the creation of an Enterprise-wide Supplier Relationship Model (SRM) for Johnson & Johnson.
