Description Overview

This is a great time to showcase your Work Systems expertise at Perrigo, a growing, global, consumer self-care company.  We are uniquely positioned for continued growth, with key focus on enabling operations and supply chain efficiencies to drive our growth strategy and business results.  To support this supply chain transformation, we seek a talent to implement our Perrigo Work System (PWS) at our seven West Michigan OTC facilities.  Reporting to the Vice President OTC Operations, this is a highly visible role, that will spotlight your talents to lead projects, collaborate and train operations staff, and guide the development of this critical program.
