Originally I started working for Upkaizen as a Sourcing Specialist. But now my activities also include implementing the right processes and practices across the company, mentoring the team members, assisting with forming strategic objectives, and plenty more.
Time spent in the company encouraged me to boost my professional and personal qualities in leadership, organizational, and communication skills, and familiarise myself with business and financial principles. All of that now allows me not only to bolster up its growth but also to improve greatly in other activities I have a passion in, like landscape architecture and archery.

Some of the companies I have collaborated and worked with include PepsiCo, Walmart, Brinks, Royal Canin, Fonterra, IFF, Dupont, Prysmian Group, Holcim, World Health Organization, and countless SMEs and startups from around the world.
This experience allowed me to strengthen my social skills, understand the nuances of cross-cultural environments, and acquire a holistic business view. I consider myself a 'global citizen' with an academic background in engineering and management. I stay in tune with the digital business style through ongoing courses and world travel. I am an organized and results oriented person. I speak English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese; and basic Ukrainian and Russian.
