Peter Connelly has been in the procurement business since before he knew there was one - since before most of us knew there was one. He is retiring from Leggett & Platt, one of America's oldest, most respected manufacturers, and leaves behind an industry that is much different than when he started, but still rests on the same important values.

Here, he talks to Kelly Hushin, Online Content Manager, WBR, producers of the ProcureCon conference, to which Peter has been a trusted advisor for many years. With a recent disaster in Leggett's hometown headquarters of Joplin, Missouri, Peter has more than ever had to look to the roots of good procurement both as a profession and as a philosophy.
