I enjoy working at Smit & Zoon because of its friendly atmosphere, supportive team and positive environment. At Smit, the employees are valued and empowered and that promotes a sense of belonging and commitment.

I work as a Supply Chain officer and my key responsibilities are to manage import & export activities including customs clearances and documentation.  My essential role is to analyse and optimise supply chain processes and procedures by monitoring shipments, costs, ensure safe and timely pickup and delivery of shipments. As an order fulfilment officer, I understand customer needs, resolve customer issues and manage the smooth flow of order processing. I also co-ordinate for HR and admin activities.

Royal Smit & Zoon is driven by a purpose. To make the leather value chain environmentally & socially sustainable. What is your purpose? What gives you energy in your job?

Sustainability is all about small and consistent changes that we can make to help us to look after the planet! I follow go green, reduced waste and minimal carbon footprint processes and encourage customers and all stakeholders to do the same.

I liaise for training of employees which includes awareness of safety and emergency preparedness. I coordinate to the adherence and fulfilment of legal requirements, rules, and regulations related to employment, human resources and safety in office environment.

Overcoming new challenges, continuous learning and opportunities for professional development gives me sustained energy in my job.

At Royal Smit & Zoon, we love leather. What is your favorite leather item?

It is because of its durability that leather has a long life and gives value for money. My favourite leather item is the Handbag. Leather handbags are classic and timeless. They can be worn with any outfit. This handbag is a gift from my daughter which I carry to office everyday 😊

Who are you going to pass the baton to?

I would like to give the baton to Mr. Raymond de Maaijer.
