After fifteen years in commercial and executive roles in tech but mostly food, it was time for something new. The last ten years spent building and growing beverage brands around the globe. Being 2nd generation in a family owned niche juices and drinks company, I have gained extensive knowledge of the non alcoholic beverage industry. Leading a team of Account Managers and Trade Marketeers and being closely involved in exports over 35 countries, I think it is safe to say I know what I am talking about.
Combining commercial export knowledge in combination with managing the complexity of production, supply chain and marketing is my speciality. Constant focus on commercial success without forgetting about the human factor. Growing brands and export markets require an eye for detail and real-life experience.
Mangayo literally means food in the world language Esperanto. What better name to summarise my field of expertise.
Why reinvent the wheel, when you can also hit the ground running? No need to go through lengthly hiring processes and investment in human capital. Pragmatic and result driven solutions that help unlock new potential and grow your business.
At the moment Mangayo specialises in :
* Exporting your food product: From idea to execution
* Executive interim management for Food&Beverage companies (distribution, manufacturing)
* New Product Development project management
* Commercial Due Diligence for M&A and Private Equity
* Short term assignments
