How I found life as a PEC Associate
Being part of Nissan and the PEC team has been a great privilege and opportunity in my career. It has enabled me not only to accomplish professional objectives, but also to achieve personal goals and realise family aims. At the same time, it has been challenging which has also brought much satisfaction when the job has been done.
I feel truly empowered in the PEC department. The relationships made with other departments and colleagues enriches our network and enhanced our development. I work in a very cooperative environment, where I receive support from peers and have the guidance required from the management. My career at Nissan Cranfield is an entirely elevating experience.
2010 Nissan Mexico – PEC America
After I finalised my BSc and MSc in Industrial Engineering I joined Nissan as part of the Cost Management Purchased Parts (CMPP) team. We were responsible for monitoring and reporting the costs of bought out parts for new development and new model year vehicles. I looked after the first new development vehicle “Note” for which the cost was controlled in Mexico.
2014 Nissan Cranfield – PEC Europe
I joined the same department, in the Regional Cost Manager (RCM) section. I have similar responsibilities but different scope as the RCM team look not only after the bought out parts but also the costs involved in the development, built and distribution of parts and assembled vehicles. I’ve worked mostly in the Russian projects “Murano”, “Pathfinder”, “Qashqai”, “S-Trail” and just recently working on “Infiniti” models.
