Owning your career isn’t always easy or clear. But when you’re in the driver’s seat, the freedom to create a career path that matches your aspirations is wide open. Alexandra B. knows exactly how that feels. Since day one at Kimberly-Clark, she has created her own path, “Don’t wait for others to come and help you – this is a key to your own success! Good news that it’s all in our own hands.”

Alexandra B., a self-proclaimed inventor and improver, joined Kimberly-Clark Russia as a deployment planner 11 years ago when the first facility in Russia began. She immediately implemented new ways of working which supported her further moves and individual development. Alexandra kept bringing her original thinking to work every day and it pushed her ideas into execution. Her initiation and commitment brought her to a team leader level and helped drive several stages of processes and structure change within the company.

Alexandra passed deployment and tactical planning, extended and transformed her team from Russia to the Central & Eastern Europe Supply Planning Division, and since 2020 she’s been leading Central & Eastern Europe Demand Planning. Her efforts don’t stop there. She continues to grow and expand her portfolio with her leadership role in creating a large cross-functional project updating and redesigning system and operating processes. 

“Kimberly-Clark is teaching me every day with providing business examples which I can reflect and take to my own experience. My leaders always support my ideas and their implementation, and we often brainstorm together,” Alexandra says.

Expanding her experience, Alexandra regularly sets-up mentor’s discussions with leaders from different regions to broader her business vision and help others within the company along the way. “I’m a wide thinker and extend the horizons to others.” When discovering roadblocks along the way, she discovered that these discussions, helped her and others find meaningful solutions. 

“On this exciting journey, Kimberly-Clark is always open to my ideas and provides a good level of sponsorship in my career development”.
