Ian Maher

VP, Head of Sourcing, The Hanover Insurance Group, Inc.

At The Hanover, Ian Maher is focused on growing sourcing as a business imperative. His responsibilities include providing leadership education on both the business benefits and risk management aspects of sourcing.

He brings a unique insight into sourcing, having "crossed the chasm" from the sell side to the buy side in the industry. His work in "achieving relevancy" with key external organizations has contributed to The Hanover being considered one of the leading innovators in sourcing. His current sourcing responsibilities include the adoption of Automation across the Group.

Career experience with Fujitsu and Gartner has provided Ian with twenty years of insight into operating models across both service and manufacturing sectors. Ian's ability to apply multiple perspectives on sourcing means he is regularly requested to speak at both service provider and service recipient organizations alike, as they wrestle with the challenges of realizing the benefits of sourcing.
