Meru accomplishes what she sets out to achieve and is passionate about her job while always striving to learn more and better herself. I’ve witnessed Meru succeed working with difficult personalities and turning them into allies through supporting business needs and delivering data to support her cause. Meru was an asset at TETRA managing categories inclusive of contract labor, wireless services, office supplies, and various HR categories.

TETRA Technologies, Inc. has grown quickly over the last few years and developed many inefficient purchasing practices. Since day one Meru has worked to identify those inefficiencies and deliver solutions. Even when faced with entrenched interests. Meru is patient, diligent and resourceful. She clearly understands that there is more than one way to solve a problem. When faced with unusual requests from our department, she has gathered information quickly and presented it in a way that was easy to act on.

Being new to the organization, she quickly assessed the processes and utilized technology, took time to learn the business and understand key issues and risks on the project she was a part of. Having completed company provided training. Meru in a very short time was able to set up, monitor and analyze complex sourcing events and educate her team members on best practices from her previous experience. She is a very fast learner with a great deal of skill and attention to detail
