EXPERTISE
I NAVIGATE CULTURES

and understand the business and challenges of global suppliers.  Contrary to the transactional approach of traditional Global Sourcing, I use my expertise and experience in local cultures to develop a long-term relationship with suppliers that empowers my employer for best pricing while maintaining quality.  I bring real value through my approach of cultural understanding.

I AM A TEAM BUILDER

and I am skilled in working with different areas throughout the enterprise to enact change that is necessary for business success and while building a cohesive team environment.  I adapt to meet challenges and change that is inherent to international procurement and operations.  I embrace change and enjoy working with teams throughout the company toward a common goal.

I AM VIGILANT

in monitoring supplier productivity and excellence.  In addition to quality and regulatory compliance, I look to consistently monitor true Sustainability of suppliers, and to ensure that Social Responsibility requirements are vigorously met.  While challenging suppliers in Continual Process Improvement, I work hard to manage risk for my employer.
