A Brief Introduction
I work as a Business Consultant, Trainer and Business Development Partner. I help companies in the field of industrial engineering, operations management and supply chain management to improve their operational performance and to introduce their solutions in Europe and in the Americas.
Specialty: Industrial Engineering & Lean Manufacturing, optimization of Supply Chain processes, and Sourcing B2B industrial items. I implement technological tools and continuous improvement methodologies.
I consult companies of various sizes and startups on all aspects of supply chain, continuous improvement, and leadership, including manufacturing, procurement, quality, industrial engineering, lean & kaizen, warehousing, and transportation management.
I worked, studied, traveled and lived in different countries in Europe, North America, South America, Asia and Oceania. More than 25 years of professional career in multinational companies in the food and beverage, CPG, transportation and manufacturing industries. Some of the companies I have collaborated and worked with include PepsiCo, Walmart, Brinks, Royal Canin, Fonterra, IFF, Dupont, Prysmian Group, World Health Organization, and countless SMEs and startups from around the world.
This experience allowed me to strengthen my social skills, understand the nuances of cross-cultural environments, and acquire a holistic business view. I consider myself a ‘global citizen’ with an academic background in engineering and management. I stay in tune with the digital business style through ongoing courses and world travel. I am an organized and results oriented person. I speak English, Spanish, Italian & Portuguese.
