Women of emnos Series: Carine Plumet
This week, we are featuring Carine Plumet our Retail Manager of Belgium.
- Where did you start your career?
This was more than 30 years ago at Douwe Egberts (bought by Sara Lee) who was a leading coffee company in Belgium. After some months in the market research department, I worked as a Product Manager to develop the portfolio of brands, analyzing Nielsen & GfK data to better understand our consumers’ behavior.
- When did you start at emnos? What brought you here?
I started at emnos in July 2017 managing the development of our business with Carrefour utilizing my knowledge and good networking within many FMCG suppliers in Belgium.
- What unique perspective does your experience bring to your leadership role and the company?
Thanks to my experience at Nielsen (with retailer data) and at GfK (with consumer panel data), I understand that emnos’ USP is essential in gathering actionable insights within our suppliers.
- What do you love most about your job?
I like the challenge of helping our suppliers search for solutions to understand the evolution of shopper behavior, taking into account new trends like bio products, the vegan wave, e-commerce growth, ecological packagings, etc.
- What advice would you give to your younger self?
Develop good relationships with your teams and clients, be yourself, and enjoy new challenges!
