Karsten Heinrich joins us in our Hong Kong office taking on the new position of Director Strategy & Development.
In this role Karsten will support the Executive Leadership team in further developing our overall corporate vision and strategy, overseeing the establishment and execution of strategic plans and initiatives across all OI locations and function areas.
This will also involve providing advice on strategic choices, initiating the formulation of a robust portfolio strategy, as well as driving decision-making that generates medium- and long-term operational and business improvement in general.
Karsten joins us with a wealth of experience from such names as PwC and Li & Fung. His most recent position was Director at PwC’s Value Chain Consulting Practice where he built and grew consultant teams that handled large-scale business transformation projects, and contributed to engagements as an expert on topics relating to sourcing and supply chain strategy, sourcing organisations and procurement operations.
This background comes from his almost ten years at various Fung Group companies, at which he had a number of roles ranging from hardline account management roles over vendor support services, to strategic project management for the executive office.
OI CEO Heidi Stevens has the following to say about Karsten’s joining:
“We are excited to have Karsten as a part of our organisation: he will add another dimension to our Leadership team with his extensive strategic experience, deep supply chain knowledge and breadth of cross functional competencies. We have an exciting strategic agenda ahead of us where Karsten’s expertise will support our acceleration…. Welcome aboard!”
We wish Karsten every success in the new role.
