En résumé

Currently working for Volvo Trucks as a buyer, I develop my technical knowledge and purchasing skills in a dynamic industrial truck organization.
From my previous position, I have the chance to experience and compare cultural differences of Europe and Asia Pacific within the same group.

The Master Degree of Engineering I passed, gives me the ability to have a wide understanding of the Supply Chain and the consequences of my own job on the global group strategy.

Eager to build a strong experience in Purchasing, I am nonetheless willing to learn from other Departments and also be more involve into strategic decisions.
