Country General Manager
Vanessa Stark, originally from South Africa, is not a new face for CHEP. She has been working for CHEP Automotive in Cologne since 2012. First in customer service, then in sales and then as Strategic Marketing Manager for Europe, Middle East and Africa. Before joining CHEP, Stark was also active at BMW and supply chain company UTi Worldwide.
“From the moment I joined CHEP in 2012 I was hooked. It is a company that embraces a culture of diversity and encourages us all to dare to become more than we think we are. My initial start at CHEP was in the Automotive division in Germany and over the years I worked in different departments and levels. In May 2019 I took on a brand new challenge to lead the CHEP Benelux Pallet Business and I moved my home and work base to Belgium. I was extremely impressed with this fantastic business and high caliber of people who have embraced me. I feel privileged to be part of such a great team who work so well together in name of serving our customers in the best way possible. As the invisible backbone of the global supply chain, we are in a challenging and relevant business which makes it very interesting every day. The fact that our business model is inherently sustainable, is for me still a big motivator to keep coming to work. And I do love coming to work.”
