Aitor Herrero

, I transitioned my professional career into Procurement, serving as a Purchasing Technician for factory projects in Spain.

As our procurement organization expanded into a European entity, I took on the role of MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Operations) Manager, installing and implementing standard solutions across Europe for supply chain management and common warehouse management.

Subsequently, I was assigned the role of Category Manager for Automation, coordinating the Category Managers of MRO as the leader of the EMIA (Europe, Middle East, India and Africa) group.

During this transition, I was appointed as the Category Manager for IT for Manufacturing, implementing the Smart Factory Program as part of the PMO (Project Management Office) within procurement.

Currently, I am the leader for all EMIA categories related to new technologies and the Procurement Business partner for all of EMIA within the digitalization of factories.
