Giorgia Minelli - Senior Sales Manager

As Product Manager I have a full work plate, but still find time to lead Dow’s Swiss Women Innovation Network, trying to attract, retain, develop and advance female talent.

My name is Giorgia. I’m a Chemical Engineer and graduated from the Politecnico di Milano in 2004.

I joined Dow in 2007 through the Commercial Development Program for the EMEA region.

Since then I have had several commercial and marketing roles in the Packaging business, from Key Account Manager for the Italian market to Marketing Manager for Industrial Films and Consumer Packaging in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

These experiences gave me the opportunity to better understand market dynamics, customer needs and application requirements which strengthened my business acumen.

Today, I am the Product Manager for Specialty Plastics in EMEA and am responsible for defining and directing the medium to long term future of our business participation strategy, as well as developing and implementing the regional product strategy.

I am also leading Dow’s Swiss Women Innovation Network (WIN) which supports Dow’s effort to attract, retain, develop and advance female talent and celebrate and reward diversity in the workplace.

I believe Dow’s strong position in the market place, together with its diverse and international atmosphere, provides a unique environment to grow my skill set and further develop my strengths.
