Biography

"I was recruited by the Group in Ukraine in connection with the work-study master program at the Higher School of Agriculture of Angers, France. I became familiar with the corporate environment of the company and made a career plan with the assistance of the Group. After studying dairy science and technology at Agrocampus Ouest, Lactalis offered me the position of industrial management controller at Walhorn SA (Belgium), where I was tasked to establish finance controlling tools and supervise two factories. At the end of the mission, and given my professional and personal wishes, I was transferred to a production site in France, in Petit Fayt. My task was to oversee long term finance controlling at the site, whilst furthering my professional skills in a position that is part of an industrial function.  The profession of industrial finance controller establishes a link between industrial and financial performance. Acquiring technical and technological skills provides a basis for better analysis of industrial performance. In addition to appropriate training and education, working in the field is excellent for sharpening one’s knowledge base.  The fact that I have worked in 4 of the Group’s factories in 2 countries in 8 years has helped me acquire the capacity to adapt quickly. This is true not only from a professional perspective (varied manufacturing activities and organisational structures), but also from a personal perspective (as company culture is based on factory history and staff mentality and differs from one country to another, even from one region in France to another).
