Tom Catthoor Reporting & Consolidation Responsible

"Manuchar’s continued expansion has undeniably influenced my work scope and responsibilities. I have seen the Manuchar group grow from a handful of companies with limited reporting and consolidation requirements to an interesting and challenging multinational environment, which continues to provide new opportunities for me to grow in my job. Despite this growth I find that Manuchar has always stayed true to its unique spirit of flexibility and team play, in large part thanks to the wonderful colleagues we have in this company. My current role is to perform the monthly group consolidation, assist in creating the set of monthly group reports used by the management and the business, and help in continuously trying to improve the quality of our reporting. The work environment in Manuchar is a great place to stimulate these interesting challenges."
