My job is to provide effective and efficient support in the areas of animal health planning, reporting and business partnering as well as controlling and continuous improvement projects. Also I give guidance to the controlling organization in the MIDI OPUs to help them support business partners in the countries. I’m the point of contact for the corporate controlling organization to clarify open questions, agree on interpretation of guidelines and procedures and to answer additional requests with as little OPU involvement as possible.
I work in a regional office with colleagues of various nationalities. Our controlling department includes one Australian, one German, one Belgian, one Portuguese and one Dutchman. Everybody has their own view and we learn from each other. In Finance we have lots of deadlines to meet and work really hard, but also realise a sense of humour is important and manage to have a bit of fun.
How I came to Boehringer Ingelheim
I started November 2012, as Controller Animal Health / Medical for Netherlands and Belgium. Since Benelux merged into the current MIDI structure I am responsible for Animal Health Controlling for all MIDI countries (with a focus on NL and BE).
