From Cleaner to Master Planner
Demis Karciauskas studied Value Chain Management at VIA University College in Horsens, Denmark, and while he was studying he got a job working as a cleaner at our bakery in Hatting. This was in 2010, and it was the first step on his career path in Unibake.
“I supported myself through college by working part time as a Cleaner at Lantmännen Unibake’s bakery in Hatting. That’s where I got the first taste of working for Unibake. And as part of my studies it felt natural to extend that relationship by applying for an internship at Lantmännen Unibake, where I focused on the roll-out of LEAN in the organization. It was a huge project. We thought we would be able to change the entire culture of the company within three months. We didn’t, but we learned a lot.”
After the internship Demis advanced quickly within the organization, and he moved on to work as Hygiene Manager, Production Manager and Master Planner in the supply chain for the frozen part of the business.
“I loved the job as Master Planner, and I never thought I was going to leave it.”
From one dream job to another – and a third
After a year as Master Planner in the distribution Demis got an offer he couldn’t refuse: A position in Unibake International as Business Process Manager.
“It was an exciting time with a lot of travelling. I got to visit Unibake’s bakeries all over the world, and it gave me a unique insight in to the different cultures in the bakeries all over the world.”
Demis has always had a fascination of how he could work on improving the status quo, and he is going to bring that focus with him in his new role as Operations Excellence Manager in Lantmännen Unibake Denmark & Germany. A job he started in April 2018.
“My new role is going to be as a sort of change manager who helps and supports the Danish business to the best of my abilities. Our CSI (edit: cost saving initiatives) foundation is ‘better, faster, cheaper’. We always have to look for opportunities to strengthen our organization and work smarter and more systematic. My mindset is that we can always do better. It is important that we develop as people, and it is important that we develop as an organization as well.”
