Reporting to the Financial Director and supported by a team of 8, I am responsible for the planning and management area. I ensure the production of monthly financial and statistical reports for internal and external users, oversee budget preparation with quarterly reviews, and give advice and support for new business strategies being involved in many different transversal projects with both, strategic and operational areas of the company.
New roles and procedures were defined for the team as a result of a new system implementation (SAP). This project let achieve savings in headcount by 18%.
In addition, and with the aim of align teamwork with information required by other departments, I performed an exercise of vision and strategy which strongly improved technical and managerial skills of each one of my team members. It also boosted information flow, anticipated monthly results and consequently the implementation of action plans, which delivered in a much more efficient management of business risks and opportunities.
At present the area is being prepared to enter into SOX compliance.
