Salvador M. M. - Planning Manager
Anyone could think that being part of a business unit would mean working in Marketing or in the Sales department. When we talk about Ferrero, market leader with production plants strategically placed all around the world, the Logistic function becomes of great importance.
How do we manage inventories for products with such high quality and freshness standards, when our factories are present in so many different countries? How do we deliver products to our clients in optimal conditions? These are just some of the issues we solve in my area on a daily basis, and since the demands of our clients are constantly increasing, we basically face new challenges everyday. Being part of the Logistics function requires constant learning, since the efforts of several areas converge in ours: Production, Sales, Marketing. At the same time, it allows us to be in contact with different cultures and to learn various languages. English is no longer the only one required, as Italian is fundamental in our Company. As a matter of fact, being part of Ferrero has given me the opportunity to learn a third language. It is quite common to find at any Ferrero location colleagues of at least three different nationalities, which shows that working for Ferrero offers international professional opportunities.
One of the aspects that have caught my attention, in almost three years in this Company, is the leadership of our products in the market. As Planning Manager, I have the opportunity to interact with people from all over the world, and I can confirm that the quality and leadership of our products is recognized worldwide.
