General Management


Inspiring leadership is key for development


Our General Managers possess a high level of conceptual and strategic intelligence. They can read and assess situations, identify strengths and weaknesses. They have the courage to take bold principle-based decisions aimed at long-term results.

A key responsibility of any leader at FrieslandCampina is to identify, grow and stretch talent.

As a leader it is your job to inspire and support employees’ development and to create an environment of trust where people can grow.

Having a ‘whole-of-business’ mindset is essential for success

"We develop business leaders within FrieslandCampina. That means stepping up to opportunities and assignments that strengthen cross-functional capabilities. Whether you are in Supply Chain, R&D or Finance, you have to be willing to learn multiple things at the same time. This ‘whole-of-business’ mindset sets our people apart and the organisation up for success." – Manoj Viswanathan, Business Group HR Director Asia
