Working in purchasing at Michelin
After 8.5 years in Purchasing with another company, I had the opportunity to join Michelin and utilize my MBA to move forward with my career.
After beginning in the Marketing Purchasing area, I added Tax and Training and then moved into the Benefits area as Category Manager, working with a very forward thinking Benefits group.
After several years I was provided the opportunity to join the Raw Materials global reinforcement team. Securing Metallic and Textile reinforcements products for North America in a team environment is allowing me to continue to expand my knowledge in the Raw Materials area and to share my Purchasing experience as I work closely with my European, Asian and South American counterparts.The Best part of my adventure is the fact that, even though there are parameters under which I must work, to a large extent, I am really given the latitude to do what I need to do to accomplish the goal.
