Gracing our front cover this month is Alexandre Turolla, VP Procurement Global Raw Materials at Mondelēz International. In this feature, we take a deep dive into the company as it looks to leverage its procurement function and drive real change for the business and the world around us.
Powered by a simple mission to make procurement “Fearless Business Leaders and Trusted Partners who bring The Outside in to Win”, Turolla speaks of a “constant and positive dissatisfaction” as he and his team continue to seek out the next stage of procurement evolution.
