About The Position
Overview
Reporting to the VP of Client Experience, the Project Manager is responsible for planning and tracking—from start to finish—new product development, replenishment, repackaging and reformulation projects. The project manager’s primary responsibility is to ensure projects are accurately scoped, documented and completed on time, by paying attention to details starting from project initiation through execution and final project closure. As such, the Project Manager liaises with all cross functional teams including Research and Development, Operations, and Quality, to ensure projects are executed in full on time. The Project Manager will also work closely with our Sales team to manage the client relationship. In addition to product development, you may have the chance to lead other projects supporting operations, equipment and facilities or supply chain.
