Bayer Sr. Manager SSHE Supplier Management

In her role as Senior Manager Supplier HSE/Sustainability Management Rincy represents the Governance, Digitalization and Transformation domain of corporate SSHE (Sustainability, Safety Health and Environment) function with regards to Global Supplier Management for Pharma and Consumer health divisions of Bayer. She is responsible to Manage suppliers with a focus on sustainability/HSE and ensures that this is in accordance with the Bayer Supplier Code of Conduct and the principles of the PSCI (“Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Initiative”), thus effectively managing Sustainability and HSE risks (i.e. in the area of business ethics, human rights as well as safety, health and environmental protection) at suppliers. In this role she partners with External manufacturing functions and the Procurement Sustainability function. She is also part of the Global HSE internal audit team and thus contributing towards HSE risk mitigation within the Bayer sites.
Overall, on her career path Rincy has over 13 years of experience within Bayer in the areas of Supplier Management in the Pharmaceutical industry from multi-functional perspectives including functional experience within Procurement (in Global Sourcing role) and in her SSHE (Sustainability Safety Health and Environment) role currently. Additionally, Rincy also has gained experience in the Quality Control function outside Bayer, thus making it a full package of Quality, HSE and Procurement skill set.
Rincy’s engagement within PSCI started in 2014 in the Supplier Capability Building Committee where she contributed towards the first PSCI supplier capability event. During 2017 -2020 Rincy took-over the role of the Co-lead of the Governance committee (from 2017 – 2020) and since early 2022 she is co-leading the Capability committee. She loves to challenge the status quo and strongly believes in continues improvement.

My Journey within PSCI started in 2014 when PSCI was still a small loosely formed group of about 17 member companies who shared a common vision of building responsible supply chain. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to contribute towards PSCI’s vision through various roles.

My long-standing engagement with PSCI is due to the fact that the PSCI vision and mission for me is not only a professional responsibility but a personal passion. As a person who had closely seen the issues in the Pharma industry and had the opportunity to interact with the victims of those issues, I always had an inner urge to do my little to make it a better place for many who are greatly in need.
Every little impact that PSCI is bringing whether it has to do with the quality of lives of people or better environment to breath in, I realize that all that we do makes so much sense, and that we are doing the right thing and should continue doing it.
