  • The ability to make independent decisions within existing guidelines, advising more junior team members
  • Exceptional organizational, planning and project management skills; strong at conceptualization, follow-through, ownership and accountability

  • Outstanding interpersonal and communication skills to interact with internal and external stakeholder while working in a global collaborative team environment
