Work Experience

ØInternational Logistics- Achievements

·I reduced the load preparation lead time by 72%, and costs by 65%, generating savings of u$s85.000. These reductions enabled the company to reach customers faster and cheaper.Year 2006 / 07

·I developed a logistic operation which was the solution to shortcomings in our own DistributionCenter. This resulted in our clients being able to lower costs by our optimizing load preparation both in trucks and containers. It also improved the reception quality of our products. Year 2003 / 04

·I designed and implemented an alternative bimodal logistic, which reduced the problems with the sea transport market to the PacificCoast in Latin America, and solved difficulties with production in the manufacturing plant. This alternative logistic, which was as fast as the original operation, prevented us from incurring airfreight costs for u$s50, 000. Year 2004 / 05

·I implemented a Foreign Trade application in the Sub-Region I was responsible for, whose operation model still serves as benchmarking in all Latin America. Year 2005 / 06

·I promoted high-potential resources in my Sub-Region, to temporary positions in the Region. This situation increased the resources exposition and brought about their career development as well as the creation of replacement frameworks Year 2007 / 08

ØPurchasing – Achievements I developed the whole suppliers portfolio for the “Bienestar” Business, with certified quality and on a sale-or-return basis, providing an excellent service with positive cash flow.Year 1997 / 08

  • I developed a new sanitary towel Supply Source in Colombia which enabled our company to lower costs and improve both our product quality and the offer portfolio to the Marketing areas. Year 1996
  • I was part of the team who developed and implemented the Purchasing Regional Model for the Cosmetics Business. This model permitted the company to lower costs - more than 2.5 million dollars in two years - by dramatically reducing the suppliers portfolio and by implementing an Information Tool which makes it possible to compare prices from different Supply Sourcesin different countries simultaneously and thus, choosethe best purchasing option in each case.Year 2000 / 2001
