Finance is seen as a full business partner

Kevin curious by nature

"I get really energised when I have learned something new, personally and as a team, and if we are on the right track together." Kevin is curious by nature, but how does he translate this into his work as a Finance Director in the North America region?

A full business partner

"Finance within FrieslandCampina is seen as a full business partner, and we need to be fully up to speed with what is happening in the market. We steer the business, together with the Managing Director and respective management team. Part of my day is spent on financial activities and the finance team, but I am also very involved from a commercial perspective; helping the business grow and reach the next level. Both, operationally (short term), and strategically (medium to long term). In my role, I do this for the North America region.

In my 12 years with the company, I have been continuously challenged in different roles.

From Corporate (group) roles to finance roles in different business groups in the Netherlands and now as Finance Director in North America. I get really energised when I have learned something new, personally and as a team, and if we are on the right track together. If we keep learning and stay curious, we can find that sweet spot in the market, and introduce products that help our customers.

Great colleagues

Tartalom

I love the unique culture at FrieslandCampina and working together with colleagues with an open, can-do mentality. When someone has a great idea, we listen and see how we can make it work.

We are a large company, but at the same time, it can feel very family close. 

This might have to do with our heritage and the fact that we are owned by a large dairy cooperative with mostly family farms. As a company we have a strong purpose, a reason to exist. This motivates us to go the extra mile."
