Jul 2014 - Present
I currently manage both of Continente's Outlets and since taking this position I've achieved to bring the business from a negative net margin to a positive one, while making the sales grow by 12%. At the same time, while reporting directly to the Head of the Non-Food Area, it is my role to organise and cooordinate the information from each business units to other internal clients.
Category Manager - Toys
May 2010 - Jun 2014
In this position I managed the toys offers in the company's stores. This included selecting the range to better suit the demand by clients, negotiating pricing, promotions and overall business with suppliers and internal clients (marketing, stores, logistics...) while at the same time managing the category's P&L. During this period, Toys achieved consistently both sales and market share growth.
Dec 2007 - Apr 2010
In my first role at Sonae Distribuição I managed the supply chain of a category of products, from purchase forecast to delivery terms, stock optimization both at wharehouse and store level. As the primary contact for suppliers and stores, this position demanded strong negotiating and planning skils.
