National Supplier Spotlight


Jeremy Bellman and Gonzo Araya created Socio to help sourcing professionals, their stakeholders, and suppliers work together as partners – an expression of the passion they have for helping people work better together.
Six years ago, they made a connection during an NGLCC matchmaking event that developed into a relationship with a corporate partner. To cultivate that relationship, they developed a strategy that included regularly scheduled phone calls, targeted emails, and mentorship program participation.
