Collaboration : Strong relationships are in place across the organization and with external partners, as demonstrated by the successful, smooth launch of new products and integrated ways of working with partner functions.

Project Management : Your project management excellence is evident through leadership and fulfillment of your own product plans and timelines. You are a go-to product development expert on other company project teams and your organizational skills and follow-through are instrumental to their success.

Expertise : Has brought synergistic technical expertise to enhance our capabilities, and has helped us deliver the more natural, simple profiles that have expanded our product portfolio and grown our new product business
