With a Bachelor of Science Degree in Industrial and Labor Relations from Cornell University and 20 years of experience managing individuals and teams, Gourdie brings to the company an extensive knowledge of international supply chain management, customer account and relationship management, and recruitment and development.
She was instrumental in the implementation of fulfillment and manufacturing centers for IBM and Lenovo in the United States, United Kingdom, Eastern Europe, and China. She oversaw start-up operations for the fulfillment center in China and served as Business Process lead for Europe during the IBM/Lenovo IT segmentation and subsequent separation. Working with Lenovo, Gourdie continued her post as senior lead role in restructuring projects, working closely with WW Real Estate to establish new fulfillment centers in Slovakia, Poland, and Scotland, while also serving as the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) representative in the global steering group.
In 2009, Gourdie took a step away from the corporate world, establishing herself as a business consultant, servicing clients with process development and operational and planning needs in Europe and the U.S. Moving into Human Resource Management, in 2016, Gourdie established CSL Staffing, a boutique general staffing service, providing staffing solutions for businesses in the San Diego and greater Southern California areas. The company realized profit and growth from its inception. Her aim has always been to provide flexible and adaptable solutions for organizations to drive growth in dynamic environments.
With Gourdie’s proven track record of delivering key projects on time and within budget, Dalrada looks forward to her work with each subsidiary partner to help expansion efforts, reduce cost, and increase profitability.
