Headquartered in Auckland, Proqura are a new breed of procurement consultancy, whose mission is to deliver optimal procurement value and global sourcing expertise to medium and large New Zealand organisations.
Returning from London to New Zealand, Director and founder of Proqura, Igor Magud, has 16 years of global strategic sourcing experience, most recently as Head of Strategic Procurement and Director of Global Sourcing for a $10 Billion global Logistics organisation in over 20 countries worldwide.

It continues to have clear regional links to Asia Pacific; with import trade from China tripling in the last decade, whilst the 2 main import sources continue as the European Union and Australia.

I have previously used this type of technology extensively across markets globally and have seen the benefits; Sourcing Dojo brings all that firepower to the Procurement professional but in an agile and ultra-economical model which makes for an even more compelling business case.”
Nick Drewe, co-founder and Director at Market Dojo announced, “We are really excited to be working with Igor to bring benefits of eSourcing to New Zealand. Igor has a huge wealth of experience in eSourcing from his previous roles at the highest levels within blue-chip firms, and so it is an honour to be chosen as his partner of choice.
