In our latest issue of Supply Chain Digital and Business Chief APAC we spoke to Thomas Tuszynski, Head of Procurement – Goods at Crown Resorts, on how the company adds value for its customers by ensuring quality throughout its supply chain.

When it comes to partnerships, Tuszynski explains that he looks beyond transactional supplier-customer relationships, seeking parties interested in growing alongside Crown Resorts. “One thing we manage is very good supplier relationships, trying to go deep,” says Tuszynski. He is confident in the value of face-to-face interaction. “When there’s an opportunity to go see a producer in another country, I take it,” continues Tuszynski. “We invest that time to go meet the producers and understand their practices.”

With this in mind, partners like global consumables supplier Huhtamaki, which bring assurances around pricing and quality, are extremely valuable.
