Who am I?
I am a high performing, ambitious and business-oriented executive with more than 20 years international and multicultural experience within Consumer Goods and Pharma Industry. Throughout my career I have led business transformations, startups, mergers, developing and growing businesses and people and in all situations, I leverage on my change agility and personal learning agility.

What are my core competencies?
Change Management, gone through all from mergers, to turn-around, to start-ups to up-, and downsizing. Leadership at all levels in the organization. Business Transformations in all areas of the organization from sales to marketing to supply chain at global, regional and local levels. Building and developing businesses and people hand in hand, one without the other is very challenging. Through diverse experiences, cultures, businesses and challenging opportunities I can give you breath.

What do I do today?
I am the general manager and fully responsible for Royal Canin Nordics, full P&L responsibility, owning a turnover of +110M€ and leading a team of 140 associates. During the last three years we have transformed all parts of the business in order to accelerate growth, build a sustainable business model, grow talents and be fit for the future.
On top of my general manager role I am the founder and board member of a social economic nonprofit organization, Bees For Hope. My role is to focus on route to market, our social media strategy and I am the project’s main photographer. This enterprise gives me the opportunity to give back.

What have I done before?
Before my career change into general management I held various positions within HR for 20 years, leading teams in China, US, and across Europe. I led teams with up to 120 HR professionals, transforming organizations, businesses and processes. I have significant international experience having lived and worked in the Nordics, China and France as well as from being part of multicultural management teams both in Europe and Asia.

I very much enjoy continuing to grow myself and our Royal Canin business and look forward exploring how I can contribute to your personal growth and business development.
