I am a senior Procurement and Supply Chain executive with 31 years experience across various industries and well-known global companies: Unilever, PepsiCo, VEON and Air France-KLM. By leading teams in Procurement, Supply Chain, Manufacturing and Finance I gained a broad set of functional skills to connect the dots in the wider Supply Chain and to drive meaningful results for the bottom- and top-line, in strong alignment with business stakeholders. I am coupling my broad functional skills with strong people management. I am passionate to accelerate the development of my team and able to set an inspiring vision that motivates and stretches my team to better results. Change management and progressively larger scale transformation have been like a thread through the various roles in my career. My focus is to further develop my general management skills – value creation, drive initiatives and set a culture that supports the top-line and accelerates the sustainability agenda. In doing so, I think it is crucial to continue to have a mindset to never stop learning and stay open for self-evaluation and personal adjustment where feedback is given.
