Gertjan van Jeveren
Supply Chain Manager Europe
“I am really in favor of the entrepreneurial way of working at AkzoNobel. The moment you can present a sustainable business case you are offered the necessities and responsibilities to start and fulfill the project resulting from the business case.
I like the international production environment and the option to build my career within various disciplines. With the help of my manager, I have already changed role and environment. Having an inspiring manager who can teach me something is of great value to me. I take the time to analyze the demands and wishes of our customers. Subsequently, it is necessary to decide upon the next steps to be taken. These next steps should be in line with the goals of both our customers and our business. After setting these next steps, “fulfillment” is equally or even more important.
Clear communication and close cooperation with all the involved disciplines is key to meeting the targets we have set.”
