I started as a strategic buyer responsible for dropshipping suppliers. At that time, the area included only a handful of suppliers and slow and inefficient processes with numerous challenges in operations. By creating process standards, documentation and strict requirements for suppliers, among other things, I developed the area into an efficient, economic, and indispensable area for AUTODOC with more than 100 suppliers within the last 2 years, which continues to grow.
After 6 months I was promoted to team lead for the dropshipping buyers. In parallel, I developed the team and automatised several data processes with our suppliers. After one year I was responsible for the entire dropshippingВ area including supplier connections and in addition, I took over the just-in-time delivery area. Today, after 2 years, I am department manager of the entire strategic procurement team as well as deputy to the Vice President of Procurement, responsible for the entire procurement business. All this I reached without even owning a car myself, let alone being able to change a tyre on my own.
I've learned an incredible amount in just two years, and I look forward to many more exciting years with AUTODOC.
