“Improving today’s performance while preparing a pathway to future results.”

Ronald has a BSc in commercial economics and worked about half of his career in chemicals and the other half in biopharma. He has held sr. management positions in 4 global companies. His experiences have been in sales/marketing and change management and continuous improvement but is dominated by 20+ years in supply chain where he covered all typical functional areas of end-2-end supply chains in Lifesciences. Ronald is a holistic thinker, understands what it takes to build or to change to get to a supply chain that can create the difference and meet the expectations of business partners and customers.
