Matthew Hardaker - Senior Delivery Director

Name: Matthew Hardaker

Job Role: Senior Delivery Director

Years’ Experience: 20


I have over 20 years’ experience in procurement across financial services, transport, logistics and management consultancy. Over the last 5 years I have worked with over 40 clients to deliver various procurement, digital and cost transformation programmes. I joined Barkers in September 2021 and lead our Barkers Digital practice which sees us lead our clients through programmes of digital transformation and technology-enabled procurement.

As a person

I live in Cheshire with my Fiancee, Steph. I’m an extremely keen motorcyclist and lover of all things outdoors; you’ll usually find me in the countryside, either on two wheels or two legs. I started life in procurement as a graduate trainee and over the course of my career found a passion for transformation and helping businesses improve or create (sometimes from the ground up!) procurement and commercial capability. I joined Barkers in 2021 to create our new Digital services line. As a self confessed lover of all things technology and engineering related, I bring enthusiasm and passion to our Digital clients. I’m also a qualified Mental Health First Aider and volunteer with the Mental Health Motorbike charity.
