Interim Talent Spotlight #2

For the second of our Interim Talent Spotlight series, we hear from an internationally experienced procurement practitioner who has developed a career of executing and creating purchasing and procurement strategies within chemicals, consumer and manufacturing environments.

Their previous roles include spend in scope ranges between under £50m per category (with a team of two direct reports) through to £1.5bn per category (as an individual contributor).

Categories covered include chemicals, packaging, MRO, CAPEX, PPE, corporate services, logistics & warehousing and more. This individual is immediately available for roles in Switzerland, Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Benelux and the UK.

Listen to them describe their experience in the video below.

I’m an international oriented experienced procurement practitioner who has created, implemented and executed strategies across direct and indirect categories in a number of industries from automotive, manufacturing, chemicals and FMCG sectors.

The particular strength and depth include chemicals, CAPEX, MRO, packaging and services.

I have delivered change and transformation in a number of locations by reengineering processes, building strong stakeholder relationships and leading global team to managers to achieve the key goals of the organisation, all while elevating procurement to a world-class status.

By focusing on the strength of the companies I deliver results for, I have driven the strategic approach to the market while maintaining an acceptable level of risk.

By gaining the involvement of cross-functional teams, I drive consensus on moving projects and programs to completion.

I am passionate about procurement and the value it brings to an organisation and I believe my 20 plus years of experience coupled with my trilingual abilities in Italian, Spanish and English could be a valuable asset to any company.
