WHAT I DO
My team and I have global responsibility for our relationship with a leading industrial engine manufacturer. We work with both the plant and corporate purchasing team to grow our relationship and leverage our global footprint.
A TYPICAL DAY
Every day is different, but I am often in our client’s plants around the world. I regularly visit facilities in the U.S., Mexico, Brazil, UK, China and India.
You need to have empathy to understand your customers’ needs. Our customers need to know we care as much about their needs as they do.
I’m fortunate to have the ability to work with people in different countries and cultures as it is an important part of working with any global customer. I’ve also worked many different parts of this business, from purchasing to operations to sales, so I can address the challenges each team faces.
WHEN I’M NOT WORKING
Since I travel a lot, I really enjoy family time when I am home. I also enjoy running. I recently completed the Chicago marathon. It was an amazing experience…but it was my first and last marathon.
