“Procurement is not only about negotiating prices – it is about creating long-term partnerships beneficial for all involved parties,” says Marcela Ostafie, the new Procurement and Contract Manager in the Portfolio Management unit at TSCNET Services. Marcela, who chose the company because of its “fresh, international, young environment”, is looking forward to supporting all needs relating to all major purchasing processes and contractual arrangements and ensuring that business partnerships continue to flourish.
The 46-year old Romanian holds a diploma in business administration from the Munich University of Applied Sciences and has gained professional experience in a variety of areas during tenures with companies such as Airbus Group, Huawei Technologies and the Deutsche Bahn AG. In her functions as Category Manager and Strategic Buyer, Marcela contributed and expanded her knowledge on supply chains, project management as well as successful procurement. Thanks to her detailed insights into these important business operations, she comes to TSCNET equipped with great ideas and driven to make a lasting positive impact.
In her new position, Marcela will focus on implementing robust procurement processes and improving them together with her co-workers from Portfolio Management. Apart from her work responsibilities, Marcela is also taking care of her two lovely cats Luna and Lucky, who have been with her for three years. “Find out what your business partner loves and put your claws into it”, says the advice of financial market expert Clem Chambers in his article “Five Things Businesses Can Learn From Cats” in “Forbes”. We’re pretty sure that Marcela has some negotiating skills, but you don’t have to take this claw thing too literally. “Meow!”
