Wilken - Regional Manager - Johannesburg, GP, South Africa

Linda Wilken

Johannesburg, GP, South Africa

Summary

Education & 19 years FMCG experience gives me a keen insight into the economy, markets (LSMs) and trends, this enables me to be an analytical problem solver relating to outside influences as well as predictable performance in terms of forecasting.
Success as a sales person in the retail- and distributive trades, liaising with buyers in all major store buying groups, proves that I have the drive and skills to maximise output in this area of any business.
As an operations manager at the shop front for market leaders across many categories, including foods and perishables, I have extensive experience in waste management, FIFO merchandising, shelf health, On Shelf Availability execution, point of sale utilization, adhoc - & cross merchandising, displays and brand building.
Strong leadership and attention to detail is second nature to me which makes forward planning, numerical accuracy, budgeting and development of employees come easily. My innate teaching ability has made best practise share a foundation for the team success I’ve had so far both in sales and in-store execution.
Since I understand the importance of good trade relationships the client and customer is always my first priority.In me you have high energy levels, dedication, enthusiasm and integrity. I look forward to being part of a company that can hone my assets to their benefit wherein I can grow as a person and as a professional.
