Live from the Global Executive Summit – Getting to know David Romo-Garza, Head of Contracts at Airbus U.S. Space and Defense

For this episode of the Sourcing Industry Landscape podcast, we are coming to you live from the Global Executive Summit where we found a semi-quiet spot amidst all the action to spend some time getting to know David Romo-Garza a bit better. Tune in to learn about David’s journey of sky-high dreams to become a pilot, serving our country as a contracts expert in the United States Air Force and ultimately making the transition into procurement supporting the aerospace industry.

David shares how SIG University’s Certified Third Party Risk Management Professional (C3PRMP) Program propelled his career forward to help transform USAA’s due diligence program and how the insights he gained from the Certified Intelligent Automation Professional (CIAP) Program are now helping to reshape the contracting process at AirBus. David’s thirst for knowledge led him to become one of the very few procurement professionals to become certified in all 5 SIG University certification programs – which he found so valuable that he persuaded both his wife and son to get certified as well!

After listening to this episode, it will be no surprise to you why David was nominated as a finalist for the Sourcing Star Award at the 2023 Future of Sourcing Awards.
