FUNCTIONAL APPLICATION MANAGER
“The motivation that everyone has for their job makes my internal fire stronger. I see people own what they do and it motivates me to advance and grow and work together.”
It’s five years since I started as a Functional Application Manager at Stamicarbon, responsible for the Dynamics 365 environment. In addition, I act as an internal consultant and solution architect to meet internal business needs with the latest technological developments. I like to be at the heart of technical innovation.
When you think about the customers of our customers, our work reaches a big part of world’s population and that’s the main reason why I’m proud to work for Stamicarbon, because we are actually helping to feed the world and we’re continuously working on how to do this in the most sustainable way.
Within our traditionally conservative industry, there is huge potential for digital innovation and we are encouraging our customers to innovate, develop and challenge the status quo for increased sustainability and efficiency. As part of my current Executive MBA studies, I’m interviewing plant managers who have improved their operations through digitalization and the two common drivers they all mention are sustainability and efficiency. It is inspiring to see this change in the industry.
Another compelling aspect of Stamicarbon is the compact size and design of the organization, which allow me to interact with colleagues from all departments, expand my knowledge and make an impact. The motivation that everyone has for their job makes my internal fire stronger. I see people own what they do and it motivates me to advance and grow and work together.
Stamicarbon structurally supports development, with yearly evaluations and a challenging working environment, and nudges everyone to study and grow in all aspects, from leadership to technical knowledge. I always get support to pursue training that I think will benefit me, our customers, or the company.
