She embodies a genuine global citizen with a multinational background and fluency in multiple languages.

My experience in dealing with raw materials has opened my eyes to the finite nature of resources and the significant impact of pollution. It has become evident that the journey towards sustainability is imperative. As a result, I have committed to leveraging my expertise and accumulated experience to support companies in reaching their sustainability objectives and ensuring they deliver on People, Planet and Profit.”
