Project Manager Supply Chain
Van Leeuwen Pipe and Tube Group
‘I have been working at Van Leeuwen’s head office for almost two and a half years now and really like it here. As Project Manager Supply Chain I manage change projects. Often these are IT projects. I then serve as the link between the real IT professionals and the business. For example, recently I guided the integration of Combulex into Van Leeuwen Zwijndrecht’s software system. Today, materials for Combulex customers are all supplied from the Zwijndrecht location in the Netherlands.
As Project Manager Supply Chain I work for various branches. However, I am also involved in indirect procurement; for example in the centralized procurement of the energy supply contract for all branches in the Netherlands. This combination of tasks makes it an interesting and varied job.
In the future I would very much like to do a project abroad. Over time going abroad for a few months for Van Leeuwen seems attractive and instructive to me. When corona has passed, Van Leeuwen once again will offer plenty of opportunities for this. In my experience, when you display entrepreneurship at Van Leeuwen, you are given every opportunity to shape your own career. You have to create your own opportunities. When you come up with good ideas, people help in the thought process and you are given lots of room to develop yourself. That suits me perfectly.’
