Insight Sourcing Group, North America’s leading consulting firm focused on procurement optimization and Procurement Value Creation™ is pleased to announce the addition of Anil “Bob” Kothari to its leadership team. Kothari joins Insight Sourcing Group as an Executive Vice President.

Beginning his career as Principal at Kearney, Kothari went on to become one of the founding members of Procurian, where he led the growth for the procurement services firm. Given its market success, Procurian was ultimately acquired by Accenture in 2013. Kothari then assumed a Managing Director position at Accenture, where he played a key role in integrating the two firms. Following the successful integration, Kothari was appointed as the growth leader for Accenture’s procurement business, delivering the strongest sales performance in its history. Kothari’s exceptional leadership skills led to him taking on additional responsibilities, overseeing the entire suite of services within the business process services group.

“I am excited to work again with many longtime friends and former colleagues at Insight Sourcing Group,” said Kothari. “The firm represents some of the very best talent in the procurement industry and has successfully innovated and grown to become the respected market leader in procurement consulting. I am thrilled to be part of the team and contribute to its next generation of growth and innovation.”

Prior to joining Insight Sourcing Group, Kothari was the Chief Revenue Officer of Trax Retail. While at Trax, Kothari was instrumental in leveraging cutting-edge computer vision technology to drive growth in the consumer products industry. Thanks to his leadership, revenue at Trax grew significantly, helping the company to achieve unicorn status as a leading player in the SaaS space. Kothari has a proven track record of success and a deep understanding of emerging technologies.

“I, along with others from the firm, worked with Bob at Procurian in the early days and we share a common DNA. He has grown into one of the top executives and thinkers in our space and brings a proven track record of developing successful go-to-market strategies for new and disruptive products,” said Tom Beaty, Founder and CEO of Insight Sourcing Group. “We are excited to join forces once again with Bob to focus on growth and innovation as we advance our goal of driving excellence in procurement for our corporate and private equity clients.”
