Advice on (changes in) the supply chain (planning, S&OP, procurement, inventory management, warehousing, transport- and distribution systems) and the organization.
I am an operations, change and program/project manager. 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 operate as 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 to turn a decentralized supply chain organization of more than 30 local operations into a central managed supply chain organization with an uniform, transparent and simple structure and a footprint with 6 pan-European DC’s 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”.
