Claire Gibson has over 20 years of experience in both local and global procurement in various roles.
Before joining Takeda as the Procurement Business Partner based at the San Diego office in August 2015, I worked at Becton Dickinson for eight and half years in the Biosciences Division. My last role being a Sourcing Manager for both biological and chemical commodities for North America.
I earned my degree in Business and Finance at the Furness College in England. APICS certified and recently (DEC 2015) completed a certificate at UCSD in Sustainable Business Practices.
On a personal note, I am the proud mum of 2 boys, ages 19 and 20 currently both in college. I have one furry friend Oliver who is much easier to parent than the two boys. I enjoy most outdoor activities and take full advantage of the amazing Californian climate.
