Consulting

Rather than trying to negotiate “harder”, I focus on finding the “smarter” potentials, often disguised as waste and inefficiency within the own organization, rather than with the vendor.

Interim Management

With extensive experience in executive procurement roles, I am best suited ensure continuity while you find a permanent solution, enabling your current procurement organizations for the next steps.

Business Development

With more than 15 years of Experiência Brasil, I can ensure a much higher success rate in helping you find the correct path in establishing yourself in Brazil.

I was globally raised and broadly educated, am an internationally experienced, multi-lingual executive, with a functional focus in procurement and supply-chain management with extensive experience in business strategy design and implementation, preferring a collaborarive working style.
