What we value

It's all about connections

Our business connects organizations with suppliers in a way that’s smarter, faster and that redefines the way B2B is done. And our culture is built on the relationships we make with each other. Explore how our people and company values are helping us to completely reimagine procurement.

Our customers are at the heart of everything we do.

Our goal is to make an impact by solving their problems with compelling solutions that completely transform the B2B procurement space. As we work together, each of us is helping to write the story of how we bring the Varis vision to life.

At Varis, the customer comes first.  We strive to listen, fully understand their pain points and work together to provide a solution that makes their lives easier and drives results.  Working as one team with customers is the most rewarding part of my job.

Daniel has built a reputation for aligning companies for success, and thrives when he’s leading complex organizational change and turnarounds, implementing scalable processes, and driving higher levels of revenue and profitability.

This is why top companies like Amazon, Perot Systems and Dell have tapped Daniel to level up their SaaS and eCommerce pursuits. Before diving headfirst into the business world, Daniel received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Texas A&M University and was a Marshall Memorial Fellow.

She has a history of making supply chains more modern and efficient, advancing innovative and socially responsible policies and solutions. This is what led Amazon Business to task her with scaling their business to support sourcing and procurement requirements, including regulatory compliance, across Federal, State and local customers.

If her accomplishments in the private sector weren’t enough, Anne also previously served as U.S. Chief Acquisition Officer, a U.S. Senate confirmed position, within the Executive Office of the President of the United States.
