About me

I am a passionate procurement expert and play a key role in shaping INVERTO's range of services in the Retail & Consumer Goods Practice Area. I help international clients from different industries - by optimising direct and indirect costs as well as their supply chains. I have also supported clients through category management, organisational model design and during PMI. I am also involved in the development of sustainability in procurement and have recently contributed to a publication on sustainable packaging for retail and consumer goods.
