Corina joined Kraft Jacobs Suchard in Romania as a Marketing Assistant, responsible for the candy category. After a few years in marketing, she took the brave decision to take over a manufacturing role, which was the defining moment of her career. Manufacturing became the home for Corina, where she developed both her technical as well as her leadership skills. She grew her career in manufacturing, procurement and strategy and relocated with her family to Poland, Austria and Switzerland (where she is currently living).

Leading different multi-cultural teams was an amazing opportunity for her, as while she achieved great business results, she also became one of the few supply chain women leaders of Mondelēz International.

She is currently the Global Lead for Indirect Sourcing, being responsible for global sourcing of logistics, facilities management, corporate and professional services, IT and marketing and sales.

While being a senior woman-leader in supply chain is not an easy task, she is very experienced in gaining respect and support from the team members, peers and senior leaders, through her passion, driven by results, fearless and ‘never give up' attitude. She is a mentor for several women in the organization and she is a member of several organizations, with the vision to support women with Supply Chain to develop and grow their careers within Mondelez.
