Head of International Control, Nestlé Waters Head Office
“ After 4 years at Price Waterhouse, and 5 years at Apple Computer, I joined the Perrier Group in 1991 with the objective of spending only 4 to 5 years before moving somewhere else. Over 20 years later, I’m still in the Group with a deep passion for the healthiest category in the Nestlé Group, WATER! I am emotionally linked to our brands and this, I am sure, has contributed to developing the strong sense of pride I feel in belonging to Nestlé Waters.
Nestlé is for me an outstanding performing company, steadily delivering great results, and at the same time being able to care about its people and to entirely fulfil, within a well defined long term vision, its Corporate Social Responsibilities in order to create shared value.
I fully share the spirit, the principles, and the objectives of the company. Nestlé Waters is fully part of this journey and it is a place where, as a woman, I have always been given the opportunity to grow, to have fun, to learn, to get inspired and to contribute.
Long life to and in Nestlé and Nestlé Waters ! ”
