Who we are
We add value for Procurement beyond the traditional models.
We understand that through developing suppliers, Procurement receives an expanded value proposition and becomes a customer of choice for those suppliers. As a result, Procurement
HPP serves as a critical role within this development process. We understand that Procurement organizations have limited resources to dedicate to the development of their suppliers. We bring a network of highly skilled Business Performance Executives, who coach and guide suppliers to success, under a supplier funded model.
Suppliers benefit from having Business Performance Executives by their side. Suppliers who participate in our programs often say that we enable them to focus on their businesses vs working in their businesses.
As a result, they have:
Stronger business models
More efficient processes
Higher employee engagement
New products & markets for growth.
HPP was founded due to chance encounters and because of a mutual passion for supplier development.
John Mautner, Chairman of HPP, established Cycle for Success Institute (COSi) in 2001 with the vision of providing entrepreneurs with a fresh “real-world” approach to business education. While there has been no shortage of business schools offering degrees, COSi’s unique curriculum was specifically developed to have an immediate positive impact on the performance of the entrepreneur’s organization. To this day, HPP uses the same methodology as COSi did to engage and inspire better performance for suppliers.
In 2017, Amanda Prochaska, President of HPP, met John while serving as the VP, Procurement PMO at MGM Resorts International. Like most Procurement organizations, MGM was seeking to increase value beyond just price negotiations. Therefore, MGM decided to do things differently by engaging John to teach their suppliers management processes to run their business more effectively. This, in turn, allowed MGM to have better cost structures, higher quality, and more innovative solutions coming from their suppliers. Amanda thought it was too good to be true but it worked so well that she decided to partner with John to start HPP to take this simple solution to the rest of the Procurement industry.
John, who was the founder of Cycle-of-Success Institute (COSi), is a seasoned entrepreneur who has launched and built four successful companies in the past 20 years. Inc. Magazine named his first business as one of America’s 500 fastest growing companies. In 2001, John founded COSi with the intention of providing businesses with a practical business education program. Since then, COSi has educated and coached thousands of graduates in the Midwest. As a sign of appreciation for all that COSi has accomplished to grow businesses that grow communities, Governor Pat Quinn named March 16th “COSi Day” in the state of Illinois.
