Bastian Littek has a strong record in buying for online retail. “Buying is where the profit is” may be an obsolete paradigm, but for Bastian it still is one of the most important elements for improving profitability in the long term – provided that purchasing is closely interconnected with other company functions. Only ongoing mutual exchange can ensure maximum process efficiency and prevent bad decisions, while an “us versus them” mentality brings disastrous results. Gut feeling is indisputably part of any decision making process – but ultimately, corporate decisions must be primarily data-driven and based on precisely defined performance figures and detailed reports. Bastian is at ease in both areas. During his tenure with the world’s most customer-friendly online retailer, he learned what it means to put all your efforts at the customer’s disposal. He is now trying to establish this DNA with our clients as well, by listening, but always being clear in his direction.
