Working within 4000 finished goods SKUs and 900 raw materials SKUs, you will help lead supply planning strategy, define key inventory policies, and then execute those policies to improve cycle count accuracy, reduce inventory obsolescence. As a key leader within the S&OP process, you will lead the S&OP cycle in concert with other departments.
