After doing my undergrad in accounting and working in finance for IBM for 6 years, I came to the realization that the best way to impact the bottom line of a company was to optimize the Cost of Goods Sold (how much does it cost to produce, buy , transform my product). This is how I decided to do an international MBA with an emphasis on supply chain.
I have a real passion for getting the best deal possible that represent a WIN-WIN for both the supplier and the company. I think it is critical to understand what is important for your company as well as for your suppliers. Getting a deal that is too lop-sided, will not result in a good arrangement in the long run for both companies and might result in more cost.
Over the last 20 years, I have been exposed to business processes from top companies in high technology environments such as: IBM, Celestica, Quantum, Coherent and Thomson, which would be an asset for your company.
I have also worked for SMBs (Small and Medium size companies like Expresso Fitness, Infinera, and Nimble Storage). I love rolling up my sleeves and working with the numbers.
In addition to an international MBA, I have conducted business all over the world with well over 100 business trips over the last 20 years and a 2 year expat assignment in France -a definite advantage in today’s environment. I holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from McGill University in Montreal, and a Master of Business Administration from University of San Diego in California. I was a member of the Order of Certified Management Accountants in Canada.
