My professional passion is to lead innovative process optimization projects which should empower organizations to manage social, environmental, and financial resources efficiently and sustainably. Moreover, they should help clarifying accountabilities and creating transparency within the organization and its processes. I have several years of experience in international business and supply chain management, where my focus has been strategic and operative Organizational Development & Process Management. In the last few years, I have specialized in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in terms of integration of environmental, social, and financial criteria into strategies of organizations and their processes. Moreover, I have expanded my expertise regarding the relevance of certain international norms and standards (GRI Standards, the SDGs, ISO26000, UN Global Compact, Amfori BSCI, ISO9001, ISO14001 etc.), how to employ materiality assessments and the importance of stakeholder engagement and communication.
