Job Description

Position Summary

We are seeking an experienced colleague to join our Mergers, Acquisitions, and Divestitures (MA/D) and Enterprise Architecture team.

The pairing of MA/D and EA will help move our ZTD organization forward in Due Diligence strategic vision and execution optimization with an equivalent focus on building our enterprise application, infrastructure, data, and digital architecture framework.

This role requires strong cross functional communication, management and leadership skills to effectively represent ZTD to global, cross-functional stakeholders and executives, both internal to ZTD and with our business partner.
