To access Claudia Roth's full profile
I am a Global Commercial Manager who has successfully operated in firms across different industries, assuming leadership roles with increasing responsibility and across broad disciplines of Procurement. Communicate effectively with diverse stakeholder communities and at all seniority levels. Multi-lingual and experienced in working in complex, fast-paced global environments. Deep global experience and lead major transformational initiatives. Strong interest in Technology and Design.
Passionate about the strategic role Sourcing can play in an organization. Managing your supply base smartly means much more than just saving money and an empowered Sourcing function can add significant value financially, operationally and through acting as an internal solutions broker. Passionate about change, especially thinking around performance versus organizational health (both is needed) and how to make large organizations agile enough to survive and thrive in an avalanche of external change. Procurement certainly needs to become more digital to keep a seat at a table where same-time information is the real currency. The function still relies too much on mechanical information gathering and provides an internal shopper experience far removed from Amazon.
Interested in networking opportunities across industries. Global minds, Sourcing advocates, no-linear career thinkers and anyone interested in creating forums beyond their own firm and industry especially welcome.
