In addition, you will lead global teams in inventory planning and purchasing, with the overall mandate to optimize the company’s inventory position as it responds to changing business needs and economic conditions. You will travel to the company’s global manufacturing sites as needed, working to identify gaps in processes and inefficiencies, and then execute continuous improvement projects to shore up those gaps and drive value along the supply chain. You will develop weekly and monthly inventory KPIs, and optimize the performance of the company’s ERP system, enacting the company’s supply chain digitization strategy. In the big picture, you will work to develop creative solutions to supply chain problems, and integrate people, processes and technology across the global organization.
