Yelitze, Corporate Administrative Controller
Why did I join Smurfit Kappa?
I joined Smurfit Kappa because it is an international company with lots of opportunities to grow in different areas within the business. It allows its employees to realise there are so many ways to develop as a professional, perhaps in areas people don’t even know.
My career path with the company
I joined the company as Internal Audit Country Coordinator covering the Latin America countries of Venezuela, Colombia, Argentina, and Mexico. This was a great opportunity to get involved with the different operations of the company and to meet colleagues from other countries. This created an environment where we could exchange of ideas, goals and activities which supported my growth as a professional within the Company.
What I am currently working on?
I am now a Corporate Controller and responsible of the centralised general accounting of Smurfit Kappa Venezuela. This entails the coordination and control of the accounting/reporting activities to ensure compliance with corporate requirements aligned with local regulations. An important part of my role is to ensure I create a supportive training environment for my team.
