Over de functie

Guilhem Widmer, General Manager Coty Benelux

Guilhem: "This role is a key priority for me! I find it essential that we make fast pace and that our new Head of E-Commerce gets substantive traction. Therefore, I decided to have this role report directly to me. I really want to challenge the classical divides between sales and (trade) marketing. This new colleague will be challenged to take on an interdisciplinary approach.

We are very ambitious with our goals in the digital market space, thus our new Head of E-Commerce will get quite a challenge! Please do not expect a detailed plan, or lots of existing structures when you start here.

We are a company that thrives on the “own-it drive it” mentality. What I would like is a person who can advise me on how to go about E-Commerce and achieve success in this market."
