I joined Ferrero straight after graduation, starting as a Sales Representative in Belgium. I chose it over several other offers because I was convinced by the historical success of the company and its amazing portfolio of love brands. I was also enticed by the international mobility opportunities and the people I met during the recruiting process. After almost a year, I moved to the Nutella Marketing Team in Italy, which is where I got to know the real Ferrero. I was surprised by the magnitude of the projects I was involved in and the responsibility I was entrusted with. Via an interim experience in the Netherlands I was transferred to the HQ in Luxembourg and three years ago, I came to the Iberian BU in Barcelona to manage Nutella and then Pralines. As the youngest member of the “Comitato Direttivo”, I'm still learning every day, but I'm learning from the best and have the luxury of managing a highly performing team.

I started my career in Ferrero Luxembourg as an Intern in 2012, and then joined the MPG team working on toy development, first in Seasonal Products and then for Kinder Surprise and Kinder Joy. After 4 years of full excitement in Italy and then back to Luxembourg, I moved to a Business Unit and assumed my current role of Business Manager for Pralines and Tic Tac in August 2017. Over all these years, Ferrero has always supported me and my decisions, offering not just one but multiple possibilities to develop my career and ambitions. I’ve also met great and inspiring people here at Ferrero who have helped me reach my objectives and have always appreciated my work.

- Global Brand Equity Initiatives
Crafted by Thomas
Thomas is responsible for global brand management, which covers packaging design improvements, product range optimization and new product innovations. He also spearheads global brand equity initiatives like the launch of Kinder “a little, a lot” purposeful marketing campaign.
I began my career in Ferrero in 2010 as the Area Marketing Manager in the Anglo-American region where I mainly supported the launch of Nutella in the USA. After several years, I moved to Kinder where I was also responsible for the Russian market. I then moved to Brazil as Marketing Director for South America in 2014, where I managed a large team across three different locations (Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Bogota). In that position, my role was to grow Ferrero’s full portfolio in a very challenging environment. This is also an experience that helped me grow as a cross-cultural manager. Ferrero has continually supported me in my professional development path and I am now the Global Marketing and Innovation Director for Kinder snacks, tablets and bites portfolio as well as Purposeful Marketing initiatives.
