My focus is always on target delivery, combined with transforming organizations to be able to meet and exceed those targets – both on a short, medium and long term. In my current role, I have transformed the procurement organization into consistently delivering higher savings to reduce bottom-line cost, as well as increasing the contribution to top line growth. Procurement has an essential role to play in impacting the future of the company, by identifying the right suppliers to reinforce brand identity and product functionality, and pursue collaborations with suppliers that provide a competitive advantage - especially within sustainability and ESG.

I have high credibility and am an authentic leader. People like to work with and for me.
