I love challenges – manage change or set up and develop a new division; it gives me energy. Professionally I have done this, first as an apparel specialist and later in in the FMCG industry, which led to growth of commercial enterprises. Personally, this has helped my family and me to adapting in every new country we moved to. With a foundation in the buying driven apparel Retail Business with C&A and later with Makro and Metro Cash &Carry for various projects and departments as well in different countries, I was able to show my expertise as a passionate and enthusiastic international manager. As a people manager and energetic leader I create an environment where my teams reach their full potential and productivity. I have always been working in Buying and Merchandising;15 years with C&A and 15 years with Metro/Makro Cash&Carry. The last few years I have worked independent (as ZZP-er) with different companies.
