“Competency never remains unseen.”
CP Sourcing Innovation Deploy Specialist
Educational Background: Master of Applied Mathematics, Filmmaking graduate
Working with CP systems and processes has taught me how to remain curious about new technologies but also how to be mindful about it and understand the related complexity - not only the technical angle but most importantly the ‘people’ aspect of every technological change.
This has proven to be a key skill in the ever-changing digital landscape. I appreciate how Shell creates a safe and dynamic environment to build the expertise regarding existing tools, at the same time offering great opportunities to explore new solutions.

CP Operations Manager, Global Functions
Educational background: Master Degree in Marketing & Management, Postgraduate Diploma in HR Management
I joined Shell corporate team as admin support right after graduation in 2007 and since then I have been growing and developing my professional career through various roles including last 11 years in contracting and procurement. In my first years as junior staff and working closely with an experienced CP buyer, I already knew CP was the place for me. I have always valued interactions with business colleagues and our suppliers, direct influence on 3rd party spending, ability to bring real value to the company and truly making the difference for the company and people to operate safely and effectively under competitive terms and conditions. For me as a leader, it is also important to show my team that CP is also about finding one’s own purpose in it : to respect nature or help local suppliers grow and develop.
I’m passionate about commercial upskilling, therefore observing some of my team members becoming mature and experienced deal makers or valued leaders, gives me the energy and proof point that I am in the right place and right time.
