Meet the person who oversees how FedEx spends billions of dollars

At age 50, Sue Spence moved away from home for the first time in her life. With 28 years on her resume at United Technologies Corp., Spence said she was not really looking to make a change, but the timing, a recruiter, and a chance to transform FedEx’s sourcing and procurement operations led her to Memphis in 2013. Spence, who holds the title of vice president of sourcing and procurement for FedEx Services, said when she joined the company, she was told to make her group world class, save the company money, and put good processes in place.
