What is it about working with FMCG companies that you enjoy?
Working with FMCG businesses is extremely relevant to everyday life, these are the products we use and purchase on a regular basis, and as a consumer myself, it’s very motivating working with them. Especially today in the inflationary environment, these challenges are more important than ever. Understanding the challenges that FMCG businesses face and being there to guide them during the initial step of their journey is extremely motivating.
What are you most excited for in the role?
I’m looking forward to understanding the RGM community in APAC at a deeper level, and am passionate about best-practice sharing and educating the community here. Furthermore, to learn how Acumen do things as a business, learning from the team and bringing in my own expertise to create a blend of the two.
