S&OP Implementation Consultant

JUL 2007 – OCT 2016
Solventure, Ghent, Belgium

After my career at DHL/Exel, I really wanted to find a job where I could continue translating real-life business needs into requirements for supporting ICT systems. That’s how Solventure and I crossed paths, which was the start of almost 15 years of collaboration (that’s including my later role as Director Academy, of course). My personal professional growth during that journey is very much in parallel with the growth of Solventure as a company. I have been able to support that growth in many ways, mainly as a S&OP Implementation Consultant managing projects and software configurations for global and local companies within different industries. But also, through many other temporary roles that someone had to pick up during those start-up phases, like managing a part of the internal IT management, or coaching younger colleagues. Whichever way you look at it, at Solventure I had many opportunities to expand my professional experience, in supply chain management, in IT, and in soft skills.
