When did you start at Metso Outotec and in which position?
Hi, I am Sandra Méndez. I started in March 2014 as QEHS (Quality, Environmental, Health & Safety) Assistant Manager for Market Area Andes, reporting to the Local HR Manager and Regional QEHS Manager. During my first year in the company, organizational changes took place to integrate operations and I was appointed as QEHS Manager for Market Area Andes.
What kind of roles have you had? What have you learned?
My roles were related to QEHS functions, main changes were related to the scope and challenges of those positions. First as QEHS Assistant Manager with a focus on the activities in Perú. My second role was QEHS Manager for Market Area Andes, and I was responsible for all QEHS activities supporting operations and support functions in our main locations in Chile and Perú. The scope of MA Andes included activities in South America except for Brazil. My current role is Integrated Management System (IMS) Manager for South America. During all these years I have learned about our business processes, our technology, diversity, teamwork and how to address the organizational changes that have occurred over the past few years.
