As SVP Quality coordinator you will be part of D&S Business Support which is a staff function to D&S management, and you will be responsible for driving various cross-functional processes in D&S.
As SVP Quality coordinator in D&S you will be driving two interrelated agendas: continuous improvement of quality performance and further strengthening of process management.
You will be responsible for driving the management discussion of the quality performance across D&S based on reporting and monitoring of quality metrics.
