Willemijn Potjer

Global Supply Chain Head of Consumer Solutions

Danone Nutricia

Supply chain passionate since high school, I started my studies and career in the Port of Europe, Rotterdam. From there I found my way through all different stages of supply chain. Warehousing, Production planning, customer service, Integrated Business Planning, Logistics and many other topics. My real love however is for the people behind this no nonsense function. Managing smaller and bigger teams, motivating and developing people, mentoring young co-workers and teaching Supply Chain to college students are the best experiences and most rewarding during my career.

Managing operations and planning ahead are challenges I not only face at work but also at home where I am a mum of 3 young kids of two, five and seven. They inspire me and give me the energy which I then invest in my work and vice versa.
