SUMMIT, N.J. – Sept. 18, 2018 – PRLog — The prolific and highly regarded Harry E. Hough, PhD, founder and president of the American Purchasing Society (APS), has endorsed the recently published book, ‘What CFOs (and Future CFOs) Need To Know About Supply Chain Transactions,’ by Paul Humbert, Esq., of The Humbert Group, LLC. A highly credentialed purchasing management expert and multi-published author, Hough recognizes the value of Humbert’s focus on the spectrum of issues and fiduciary risks that must be addressed when negotiating supply chain and purchasing contracts.

“Paul Humbert’s new book is a valuable resource that every serious business person should read,” said Hough. “New buyers and purchasing managers will find the book an invaluable guide of how to do their job; every section of the book provides important information for the buying function. Kept on the desk, this book will be handy as a reference to help solve either common or infrequently encountered purchasing problems. I highly recommend Paul’s book without reservations.”
