Business consulting …

powered by 35+ years electronics industry expertise !

Expertise includes sales & account management, marketing & pricing, supply chain & operations but most important … team motivation !

Simplicity …

the biggest productivity influencing factor as far as I am concerned !

We sometimes forget it though … and many companies share a somewhat silly or excessive need for trendy change.

Timely revenue …

and customer satisfaction supplying a customer in time !

You easily understand the importance of a good supply chain securing customer satisfaction AND financial performance.

Fair goals …

and appropriate challenge drive performance !

Many companies push challenges too far, digging way too much into those “crucial” details, but what happens at the end ?

Supply chain and customer satisfaction is all about solid processes !

The usual trap for organizations is to drop timely execution of routine tasks and customer communication during a crisis period.

A new challenge in a very different business this time !

Hopefully allowing Preformed Line Products France (PLP) to cope with high and fast growth in this new business consultant assignment. Very different from micro-electronics !

Keeping things simple is the only way to keep your productivity high !

The usual trap of many companies is trying to be refreshingly new, exciting, trend driven.

Successful companies all share the fact they have solid order management in place !

They also document a series of key dates in their ERP system … dates that allow the supply chain to be measurable and thus … ready for continuous improvement, too.

A brief summary of my carreer includes roles in sales, supply chain, marketing and operations

Such roles usually at major global companies like Diversey INC, Motorola, ON Semiconductor, Freescale and NXP.

A new adventure when Motorola Standard Components Group (SCG) became a standalone company

I became the ON Semiconductor EMEA Business & Services Manager, at a later stage global account director for Philips after the family move to Paris.
