About Me

I have operational, managerial and consulting expertise of several years in procurement, logistics and international trade which has been gained in various industries including construction/EPC contracting, cement/concrete, steel trading, automotive and consulting.

Over the last 10 years, I carried out executive positions on above mentioned areas being responsible of large purchasing categories supplied from diverse local and international suppliers. I am expert on supply systems and processes, strategic procurement, modern purchasing methodologies, supplier management, contract management, logistics and import-export operations. Currently, I work as strategic procurement consultant giving service and delivering trainings on procurement maturity assessment, strategic sourcing, category management, supply risk management and purchasing process improvement.

I hold BSc. degree in Mechanical Engineering and MSc. degree in Engineering Management and currently, as someone believing that learning and self-development never ends, I continue my PhD in the same program focusing on supply chain management and strategic procurement. I have also international professional certificates on supply management (CPSM) and on international trade (CITF and CDCS).
