David Latten: Stay Curious

In this episode of Championship Leadership, we had an interesting conversation with David Latten, Head of Global Indirect Procurement and Supplier Diversity & Equality at Logitech – a world leader in products that connect people in a natural, intuitive way to the digital experience.

David will share his experience of not fitting well in unstructured academia which pushed him to leave school and was unsure of what the future might bring. Eventually, he found a job and landed in a corporate procurement role by accident.

After years of working in the corporate world, David finally found a home in Logitech that adapted the idea of a working environment that commits not just to product quality but also promotes gender equality. These and more!
