  • Two Tiffany Service Centers

    • Partnering with Replenishment Planning to improve the lead-time to Americas retail stores for merchandise
    • Collaborating with the Americas and Supply Chain Fianance teams for the profit planning cycle, using Hyperion and GL numbers as the common language for freight and duty spend

      Day-to-Day Supply Chain Efficiency Actively manage shipments, dissect the US$50m freight-related spend, and enable data-based decision-making in the organization. Current highlights of this accountability include:

      • Partnering with Merchandising teams for high-profile jewelry movements, balancing the trade-off between duty cost and speed
      • Partnering with Creative and Store Development teams to unblock problematic shipments into the Americas
      • Partnering with retail stores, manufacturing sites, offices and Distribution Centers to coax staff out of inefficient and incorrect shipping behaviors
      • Partnering with Retail Operation, E-Commerce, Direct Sales and Business Sales to shape our E-Commerce delivery proposition
      • Partnering with Supply Chain Finance to (a) maintain the Veraction vendor setup so that it is a single source of truth for freight spend; and (b) develop an efficient invoice review workflow to identify wrongly billed shipments, persistent shipment creation errors, expensive/problematic lanes etc
      • Maintaining the Americas Sharepoint site to promote real-time knowledge sharing, and decision-making based on common set of facts

        • Improving awareness of CITES, customs valuation, classification, and origin concepts among Tiffany colleagues located in stores and offices

          • Deep understanding of Lean, project management and change management concepts.
          • Excellent IT skills, demonstrating a strong desire to self-service and learn new systems, rather than relying on others to extract data.
          • Able to deal with uncertainty and make decisions based on best available information.
          • Strong interpersonal skills, with a genuine interest in working across cultures and pre-empting lost-in-translation situations.
          • Able to find ways to effectively work with a virtual team of direct and dotted line reports.#
