• work proactively and challenge suppliers and R&D to create the best possible prerequisites for sourcing
• work in close collaboration with commodity purchasing and supplier quality to create and contribute to the segment and supplier strategy
• negotiate, propose and nominate new business to suppliers on Scania decision forums

Who am I?

I'm Malin, and as a leader for this team, I put focus on being present and available to guide and coach the co-workers in the different challenges we are facing. For me, team spirit and having fun at work is a high priority since I believe that a strong team creates better decision making, supporting culture and improves creativity. I work with encouragement and feedback and am humble to the fact that the purchasers in my team are the specialists, while my aim is to set the direction and remove obstacles to enable them to perform and deliver a great result.
