Kmo-markt, Change & Organization Management

“Ik mocht na mijn studies Toegepaste Economische Wetenschappen (UGent) meteen aan de slag bij Mars. Vandaag kijk ik met plezier terug op 22 jaar ervaring in sales en trade marketing bij heel wat sectoren, en kanalen. Ik werkte mee aan nieuwe strategieën voor enkele topmerken, en boog mij ook over de implementatie ervan. Dat heeft ervoor gezorgd dat ik naast sales nog een sterke focus op operations kon ontwikkelen. Ik heb een cijfermatige geest, die ik steeds weet te koppelen aan mijn passie voor klanten en producten.”
