Switching careers? Christophe leads the way
After almost 20 years as a purchasing and project manager at a European market leader in textile floor coverings, Christophe Popelier made the switch to consultancy. “I found myself at a career crossroads: I could either stay in Business or I could do something completely different. Friends and colleagues told me I’d make a great consultant – and here I am”. Neither delaware nor SAP were new to Christophe.
“I do know a thing or two about SAP, but I’m not a technical consultant,” Christophe adds. “I do have an analytical mind, which allows me to take a helicopter view of how a business is managed.” During his first project assignment at a customer site in Louvain-la-Neuve, Christophe managed the purchasing processes in SAP. He was supposed to temporarily replace a co-worker for six weeks. “But you know what? Those six weeks have turned into three years now,” he laughs.
