Vacancy: Business Advisor to the CEO
The Business Advisor will serve as the right-hand person for Wavin’s CEO and Business President, Maarten Roef. It’s a versatile role that includes oversight for large projects, collaboration on M&A projects, and support for Maarten’s decision-making process. The Business Advisor has regular exposure to senior management, giving them plenty of opportunities to showcase and develop towards a next step within the organization.
“The Business Advisor will get to know Wavin inside out and have tremendous exposure. My previous Business Advisor went on to lead a fast-growing global business. That shows you what kind of great opportunities this position offers.” – Maarten Roef, CEO and Business President
As the right-hand to the CEO, the Business Advisor brings clarity to difficult problems. They provide structure with to-the-point presentations and ensure that Maarten can quickly make the right decisions. The Business Advisor makes extensive use of data – which they collect themselves – and performs a wide range of analyses.
The Business Advisor also oversees large global and regional projects. This gives them both a project management role and a more strategic and substantive role. These projects often involve senior stakeholders from different parts of the business, such as manufacturing, supply chain, sales, and marketing. Strategic positioning and expansion into new countries and regions are two good examples. The Business Advisor will travel around the world for these projects to explore topics in more depth with local teams.
The Business Advisor’s third responsibility is supporting Wavin’s M&A agenda. They screen acquisition candidates, analyze new markets, and develop potential deals. Strategic skills and a solid understanding of finance will be indispensable tools. The Business Advisor will also work closely with the VP for New Business Development & M&A on large acquisitions.
