  • Collaborating and Guiding – Work hand in hand with the supply chain team, providing updates and analysis to promote continuous improvement. You’ll work with sales, marketing, finance and purchasing to ensure accurate current and long-term forecasting. You will also present and make suggestions to other cross-functional teams regarding demand and forecasts and provide direction to other demand planners. With a commitment to teamwork, you’ll achieve your goals!
  • Analyzing and Measuring – Analyze internal demand stream information, categorizing it according to demand patterns and inputing sales and marketing intelligence into forecast systems. You’ll prepare and present various analyses of forecasting to different business unit leaders. Bring your in-depth understanding of consumption and shipment trends to successfully lead the monthly consensus process for your categories.
