The Senior Product Manager (SPM) is responsible to realize the ambitious growth planned for the LBS product portfolio in the regions of EMEA and APAC. The SPM has the responsibility over the product range and is responsible to steer the regional LBS teams and the interfaces with the relevant sales teams to ensure proper focus and the implementation of the Annual Product Plan. The Product Plan must reflect the internal priorities as per the LBS strategic 5-Year Plan, the external customer requirements, and the key market opportunities, ensuring we have a focus on those areas that will bring the highest margin return on sales.
LBS is a global supplier of specialty bakery ingredients, essentially clean label concepts, based on ingredients that are derived from fermentation of bacteria and yeasts, including enzymes, specialty yeasts, starter cultures and aromatic yeasts. The LBS portfolio is essentially derived from Lallemand own technologies.
The business is driven by high margin innovative concepts targeting the large global bakery industry and operating on a lean cost-efficient organization. The LBS innovation model is based on a collaborative approach between the baking innovation centers, the Global LBS Marketing & Innovation Group and the regional sales teams. Our business in EMEA is largely driven by a customized approach with customers, but we also see the opportunity of a more portfolio driven commercial approach.
The Senior Product Manager is responsible for the portfolio in the EMEA/APAC regions, drawing directly support from the Innovation and Application Center at Wagenberg in Netherlands and interacting with the sales teams in these regions. The SPM is also a member of the Global Innovation and Global Marketing Platforms where the development of new ingredients is planned, and regional launches are decided. The SPM is the decision maker for product launches in his/her geographical area of responsibility.
