Advice on (changes in) supply chain organizations, warehousing, transportation, distribution and S&OP. Coach for logistics team and individual team members and for high educated immigrants (BSc and MSC) with residence/working permit to find a paid job.
I am an operations, change and program/project management. Re-engineering, restructuring and professionalization of organizations is core business. I am employable in all elements of the field of supply chain management.
From 2010 I have been working as an independent Business Consultant and have carried out assignments at DHL Supply Chain, AbbVie, Jacobs Douwe Egberts, Zebra Technologies, CooperSurgical Inc and Wabtec Corporation.
In my position as Vice President Logistics Operations at Yamaha Motor Europe NV (until 2010), the conception, development and implementation of new organizations (including integrated work processes, HR and IT) was the objective. The program for a change from more than 30 local logistics operations to a footprint with 6 pan-European operations with a uniform, transparent and simple structure has been successfully implemented. Intensive consultation with stakeholders (internal and external) was key for success.
Recently I focus on coaching (for teams and individual employees / managers) resulting in a higher interest in changing and improving operational processes. And I coach status holders (immigrant with work and residence permit) with higher education (BSc/Msc) to find a proper job.
I work from Blokzijl and Amsterdam. For more details of each assignment, please check “track record”.
