Our regionally based Business Development Directors are the primary contact point for HPN Select participants. As the conduit between HPN Select users and the Procurement Team, they help develop cost effective purchasing solutions to fit participants’ needs.


Select’s Procurement Specialists identify and support operational requirements through effective negotiation with vendors to achieve competitive contractual agreements with a range of vendors at national, regional and local levels. With a variety of specialties covering a comprehensive range of property and overhead-related expenditure categories, our Procurement Specialists manage all of Select’s vendor-facing activities.
